Bilge Buddy is a ring-shaped container for your bilge pump to prevent hydrocarbons from being pumped from your bilge into the surrounding water.

Bilge Buddy's hydrophobic (repels water) and petrophilic/oleophilic (likes oil) sorbent material can be replaced without removing the device. Various sizes and styles are available upon request.
The life of your Bilge Buddy depends on your boating use and engine integrity. Usual replacement requirements are over 3 years. Depending on sorbent availablity, replacement material is under $50. Disposal of spent material should be in accordance to local government regulations. Oil contaminated material can take on the properties of the contaminant and may require specialized disposal.
