Bilges are one of the more unfriendly and inaccessible places on a boat. Over time the bilge collects water, oil, and fuel. This combination is not only unsightly and messy, making maintenance a dirtier job, it also creates foul odors. As bilge contents slosh around it spreads an oily film over the inside of the hull coating hard to reach recesses.
Using absorbent mats in the bilge only collects the oil and fuel floating on top of the water. You still have to get rid of them. And good luck trying to scrub the remaining film from bilge surfaces. Soaps and other cleaning products just emulsify petroleum leaving behind an oily combination of substances mixed with the water. It’s toxic, messy, and not Bay safe.
Blue Eagle Bilge Treatment takes a different approach
Blue Eagle Bilge Treatment is a 100% all natural product that contains a powerful Bay safe detergent. It breaks up the oil in the water and on the hull. Then our proprietary blend of microbes attach themselves to the hydrocarbon molecules and break them down into carbon dioxide and water. The oil is completely eliminated. This process is replicated throughout the bilge through the colonization of these hard-working microbes. The microbes remain active as long as there is oil to ‘eat’.
You can see it’s working
In 24 to 48 hours – depending on temperature and bilge contamination – you will see a change in color of the oily film on the surface of the water; it will appear lighter. Then, as the oil is consumed by the microbe, there will be no oil sheen on the water.
Blue Eagle is easy to use & safe
Blue Eagle Bilge Treatment is simple to use. Just spray it on hull surfaces and bilge water with a hand held or hose-end hydrofoamer. Dump any remaining in the sprayer into the bilge water. That’s it! And it’s safe enough for kids to use. It may take a few applications of Blue Eagle Bilge Treatment depending on the amount of oil in the water and on the hull. Regular use of Blue Eagle will result in a noticeably cleaner and better smelling bilge.
Blue Eagle Bilge Treatment is safe for all wire connections, bilge pumps, and float switches. It will not harm motors or rubber gaskets. Safe for all hulls. Bilge water treated with Blue Eagle will not harm the marine environment if discharged, but always check local regulations before discharging into any body of water.
