We put together a little chart below to help you understand the differences between a traditional float switch and the Barnacle by Bilge Saver. Feel free to send us an email with any questions you might have.

Part of the research and development for Remora (TM) was finding a solution with the lowest possible power need. We wanted this product to be useful for people with 2 stroke engines that have no battery installed on the boat, as this is a common feature of boats used in developing nations. We also know […]
WHERE DID THE BARNACLE COME FROM? The idea for the BARNACLE (TM) was conceived during the research and development phase for REMORA (TM). During 4 years of working through various ways of remote water sensing for REMORA, we decided that one of the methods could be used for developing a stand-alone electronic switch. The initial […]
Designed Obsolescence is a policy of planning or designing a product with an artificially limited useful life or a purposely frail design. Products like this become obsolete, and/or require replacement with a new product, or new version of the same product. We at Remora Bilge systems hate designed obsolescence. It is one of the things […]
How did you get involved in Remora? I’ve had an ongoing revulsion and overall dissatisfaction with conventional bilge pump systems for years. The resort which I own and manage here in Indonesia has 7 boats all of which need operational bilge pumps. Because the pumps, switches and fuses are all imported, they are expensive. Usually […]
The purpose of the Remora is to get bilges dry. When a bilge is dry, there is no bilge water rotting and stinking. Bilge water often contains high levels of organic matter that will rot, or in some cases start to grow and stain your bilge. When the bilge water starts stinking and the boat […]
The Remora Bilge Saver is new technology designed to keep boats dry and safe by constantly removing all bilge water. Bilges in boats are traditionally wet, smelly, heavy, corrosive, hard to reach, hard to maintain and generally abused. They are an oft-neglected safety issue, and if the pumps in the bilge break, the boat can […]
