Blue Guard Innovations’ BG-One, a solid-state bilge pump switch, oil and fuel detector some three years in design, development and testing, is now available for use on recreational and commercial boats of any size.

Without moving parts or mechanical float switches, BG-One automatically turns off the bilge pump when oil or fuel is detected, preventing oil or fuel discharge.

“Until now there has not been a ‘fail safe’ system to monitor the accidental spillage in vessels,” said Ken Franke, a retired maritime law enforcement officer. “Blue Guard Innovations has developed a robust sensor with the BG-One that protects waterways from oil and fuel spills and can mitigate accidental spillage in vessels. This prevents fines to boat owners and unnecessary contamination, plus expensive cleanup by local authorities.”

The universal device was designed for all watercraft with environmental and operational durability in mind.

Constructed of non-corrosive commercial grade ABS plastic, BG-One eliminates frequent replacement of mechanical float switches. Additionally, its solid-state drive design extends the life of bilge pumps. It was designed to be installed in any 12 or 24 volt battery system and will source up to 20 amps to power any DC-powered bilge pump available.

This is a 29-foot 11-inch luxury day boat with a 9- foot 2-inch beam and it features a fabulous expansive flat floor all the way from the bow rider area to the transom and the swim platform.
