DC Bilge Pumps

12V or 24V DC Bilge Pumps can be used instead of drainage pumps when there is no 240v power available.  They can be operated from a boat, car or truck battery, solar or wind turbine.

You can drain water from a stormwater pit, underground manhole or tank using a bilge pump as long as the head doesn’t exceed what the pump performance chart shows.  Our smaller bilge pumps are around 3m max head and the larger bilge pumps can manage up to 7.5m head.

A bilge pump is a submersible water pump used to remove unwanted water. Some models can run-dry for short periods. Since fuel can be present in the bilge, the bilge pumps are designed to not cause sparks.

Manual Bilge pumps can be fitted with float switches making them automatic which turn on the pump when the bilge fills to a set level. If possible, the pump is placed at the lowest point at the bottom of the hull, pit, tank etc so as to suck the maximum amount of water out. They could be used to bring water up from a shallow well or to fill above ground tanks.

Bilge pumps are portable and can therefore be used in many situations where normal power supply won’t reach. These pumps are extremely efficient, draw low current and offer high capacity output in a very compact housing, to fit into the smallest available space. The low profile bilge pumps will fit into small tight spaces.

They can be manual pumps, or automatic if fitted with a float switch.

There are also some Kits which include a tank with the pump fitted inside the tank.

Salt Water DC Bilge Pumps

As most bilge pumps are designed to be operated on boats, they can be used to transfer salt water.
