VirCru Bilge Pump Sensor

Bilge pump on the fritz? Water levels rising but it’s not turning on? Or turning on when it doesn’t need to? Monitor all this and more with the VirCru Bilge Pump Sensor!
(Connects wirelessly to the VirCru Hub)


The bilge pump, a vital piece of nautical equipment – but one that is often overlooked when it comes to monitoring and upgrading. Whilst we try not to think about it, bilge pump malfunctions are a fairly common complaint of boat owners. Turning on when they are dry or not turning on when they should. Other than listening out for it though, oftentimes we have no way of tracking their activity. And when you are away from your boat, you can still be taking on water in the night and would have no idea! We at VirCru saw this problem and decided a device was needed to help monitor this vital piece of machinery. And we are proud to release our Bilge Pump Sensor! The sensor connects to your boat’s bilge pump, notifying you of any irregularities via the VirCru App.

Care should be taken when installing the sensor to ensure that it matches the installation instructions in the manual provided. Installing the sensor tag itself is as easy as attaching it to a flat surface using 3M™ Dual Lock™ Reclosable Fastener, which works similarly to traditional hook and loop fasteners.. But utilises a unique shape that ensures a stronger connection and better adhesion between surface and sensor.

With the VirCru app you can monitor your vessel’s bilge pump with a few taps on your smart device of choice. Supported on both android and iOS, remotely monitoring and interacting with your boat has never been easier. The app is necessary for you, the user, to view the pump activity remotely. The Bilge Pump Sensor communicates with the VirCru Connected Hub which then transfers the data to our servers and on to your app. This will then send notifications to your smart device whenever your bilge pump activates. Avoid any nasty surprises when you are onboard or away with this nifty device! As an added bonus, the Bilge Pump Sensor also keeps track of ambient temperature where the sensor is installed.
