SINCE 2004, I HAVE BEEN BUILDING THESE BAILERS, MAINLY FOR MY OWN AMUSEMENT. IN 2008, I STARTED SELLING THEM.
I HAVE DECIDED TO CEASE PRODUCTION, BUT WANTED TO PASS ALONG MY KNOWLEDGE OF BUILDING THEM, LEARNED OVER THE YEARS THROUGH TRIAL AND ERROR.
THE EVOLVED DESIGN WORKS EFFECTIVELY AND IS RELIABLE. YOU CAN NOW BUILD ONE OF THESE FOR YOURSELF. IT IS AN EASY AND ENJOYABLE PROJECT.
TOP QUALITY COMPONENTS: U.S. made pump and switch. Electronic switch - not a troublesome float switch. Powerful and efficient pump.
ADAPTABILITY: The box and the panel can be mounted in different locations. In many small open day-sailers the box can be mounted in the bilge and the solar panel mounted on the deck up to 7 feet away.
SAFETY: A compass and signaling mirror are built into the box.
SECURITY: Locking points on the box. Rugged construction.
Suitable for small boat, tender, or dinghy.
Solar bilge pump designed for automatic, periodic removal of rain water from small boats.
EasyBailer is NOT designed to keep leaky boats afloat
Electronic water level switch with manual operation feature
Pump capacity: 500 gph
Operational pump range: Turns on at 2". Turns off at 3/4"
Pump box size 10" L x 5" H x 7" W

TO BUILD ONE, YOU WILL NEED SOME FAMILIARITY WITH BASIC WIRING. NO SOLDERING IS REQUIRED, ALL CONNECTIONS ARE MADE WITH CRIMP CONNECTORS. THE PARTS ARE READILY AVAILABLE, EITHER LOCALLY OR ONLINE.
THE TOOLS REQUIRED ARE FAIRLY SIMPLE. THIS PROJECT IS A GOOD EXCUSE TO BUY MORE TOOLS.
