Now’s the time to install, check or change your filters on board
JAN 2022 - Many boaters would like to believe they ‘leave nothing behind’ when out on the water. Yet unless fitted with filters, every time the bilge pump operates tiny particles of oil, paint, microplastics and fibres get pumped overboard, and boaters also risk consuming particles of sediment or even harmful bacteria from drinking water coming from onboard tanks.
“The only way to ensure that absolutely no pollution is put overboard, or consumed, is by fitting filters, and then checking and changing them when necessary,” says Paul Gullett of UK-based filter manufacturer Wave International. Full press release here and pic.
