Electric Bilge Pumps are great for situations where you want a simple system to remove water from your bilge in an emergency. Simply turn the bilge pump on and off as you wish.
Automatic Electric Bilge Pumps are ideal when you either can't access or see the part of the bilge where you have water. The automatic pumps feature built in float switches meaning that they start pumping when water is detected so they can be left alone to make sure you have a dry bilge.
Bilge pump switches work with both electric bilge pumps and automatic bilge pumps, in their simplest form they provide an on/off switch for your pump. More advanced switches are advised for use when installing an automatic bilge pump, these feature an on/off/automatic switch allowing the pump to be automatically or constantly on as desired offering complete control of your pump.
Bilge pump float switches allow you to turn any basic electric bilge pump in to an automatic pump. The float switches connect inline next to the bilge pump and as water is detected they switch the pump on. When fitting a float switch it is advisable to fit a bilge pump switch with an on/off/automatic switch.
