Why BilgeBuddy?

  • Affordable: Better data, better insights and more alerts for much less (get started at $350 vs $500-$1000 alternatives).
  • Proactive: Know you have an issue before you start taking on water.
    • Patented technology enables proactive bilge system failure alerts compared to reactive water level monitoring of alternatives.
    • Our high water sensor doesn’t just tell you you’re sinking when the float switch fails, it turns on the bilge pump and gets rid of the water.
  • Easy installation: No more snaking wires. Patented technology produces the same insights from single device compared to expensive multi-sensor wireless systems or hard-to-install hardwired sensor systems. Especially when your batteries and pumps are spread out.
  • Accessible: Owned, engineered, assembled, developed and supported in the USA.
