Bilge Water Treatment

Our microbial products clean your boat's bilge by eating oil, grease and other contaminants, leaving surfaces free of grime and smelling fresh and clean. They liquefy and reduce oily solids, destroy hydrocarbons and improve effluent water quality, and will tolerate antifreeze in limited amounts.

We recommend using Sound 3300 Oil Eliminator HD for heavy duty bilge cleaning - to give the bilge an initial exposure of bacteria and break the surface tension of the oil.

Once the bilge water is in a clean state, use Sound 1000 Remediator for ongoing maintenance to keep the bilge clean.

Directions for Bilge Cleaning

  1. Turn off the bilge pump and pour Sound 3300 Oil Eliminator HD into the bilge on a 1 to 6 ratio (depending on concentration of contaminants), equally distributing within the bilge and limber holes.
  2. Aeration is important; the rolling action of the vessel provides oxygen for the bacteria to propagate and helps distributes the product within the bilge.
  3. Leave Sound 3300 Oil Eliminator HD in the bilge for at least 4 to 5 days.
  4. Pump the bilge to an authorized waste reception facility.

Don't forget the Limber Holes!

Limber holes, found in the ribs of the bilge, allow water to flow into the lowest areas of the boat hull. For best results, be sure to equally distribute Sound 3300 Oil Eliminator HD within the bilge and limber holes.
