Bilge Pump

The following are four major types of bilge pumps that we deal in:

1. Centrifugal Pump

Centrifugal pumps are electric pumps where the water is pumped with the help of a wheel, driven by a shaft. It is the most popular and common bilge pump, preferred because it can run without water for a long time without damaging the pump.

2. Automatic Pump

These pumps work automatically with the help of a switch mechanism (float switch and electronic sensor switch). It regulates the water levels automatically, but still, a periodiccheck can help prevent damage from malfunctioning.

3. Diaphragm Pump

A membrane is used in these types of pumps to maintain the volume of water in the pumping chamber. The water is pushed in and out through a set of one-way check valves. Even though, these pumps are self-priming, they require a strainer on the intake side to prevent ineffectiveness due to any debris accumulation in the pump.

4. Manual Pump

It is a manually operated bilge pump where the water is physically pumped out. It requires a substantial effort from the operator, and also acts as a standby fail-safe during malfunctions.

How Does a Bilge Pump Work ?

To understand what type of bilge pump you require, firstly you need to understand how a bilge pump works. The following are some common points that can describe the working of a bilge pump:

  • The liquid enters the pump through an opening located at the centre of the impeller (eye of impeller)
  • It then flows radially out to the vanes of the impeller
  • Due to the rotation, the velocity of the liquid increases
  • Then, this high-velocity liquid enters the volute casing or the diffuser, where the kinetic energy is converted to pressure
  • The pressurised liquid is pumped out through the pump discharge

Larger craft require larger bilge pumps to handle greater quantities of water. Please refer to your craft’s manufacturer’s recommendations regarding bilge pumps or our guides to the appropriate size of bilge required. Getting a bilge pump with greater capacity than the minimum suggested specifcations is recommended.

Bilge Pump – Who Should Have Them and Why

Every boat owner should have a bilge pump because unwanted water enters the bilge through the leaks or the propeller shaft packing gland, and this water needs to be pumped out to prevent damage.

Depending on the size of your boat, you need to choose the right bilge pump which not only suits your budget, but also takes care of your work efficiently. If you have a small wooden boat, then even a manual bilge pump can do the job for you, while for big boats, electric automatic bilge pumps are preferred. There are many types of bilge pumps in a variety of features and price ranges. So choose the best one for yourself now!
