IN THE REAL WORLD
A few seasons ago the sea
strainer on our fishing charter boat clogged
The result was a burned up wet exhaust system
that almost caused the lost of the boat.
After thousands of dollars in repair and
lost revenue from down time, we added a
Borel raw water alarm to the new installation.
This season we experienced
the same problem, sea strainer clogged with
The results however were quite different.
The raw water alarm when off so fast we
had no damage to engine or exhaust system.
Even our raw water impellor was saved. After
cleaning out the strainer, we were on our
way. All of our charter boats are now equipped
with this alarm. I highly recommend this

an exhaust alarm from you two years ago,
and just wanted to let you know it finally
paid for itself, and many times over! I've
posted the story on my
blog, click here.

I received the alarm very
quickly and have it fitted. It works great
and is admired by other boat owners. You
should be getting more orders from Ireland!

I intalled the Borel alarm after the mixing elbow and forgot about them. 4 months ago while cruising, it went off. I shut down immediatly and come to find out, the impeller went. I never heard a peep from the engine overheat and no harm was done. I wouldn't run a diesel without them.
