from River Canal Rescue – worth £149

Developed by River Canal Rescue, Bilgeaway is the world’s first environmentally friendly filtration system designed to remove contaminants from dirty bilge water. WW has teamed up with its makers to offer readers the chance to win one of three filter kits.

How does Bilgeaway work?

Oily water is classed as hazardous on the inland waterways and should never be pumped overboard. The Bilgeaway filter is easy to install and fits to the output of a standard bilge pump, removing oil and hydrocarbons (from petrol, diesel and engine oil) from the water before it’s expelled into the environment.
  Unlike other filter systems that only trap hydrocarbons, Bilgeaway renders them nonreactive, meaning they cannot damage the environment. The filter contains Harenalux mineral granules that repel water and absorb oil permanently, without any risk of the hydrocarbons leaching out again.
  The kit contains a 10in filter that can remove a maximum of 450 millilitres of  hydrocarbons from bilge water over its lifetime, and is a suitable size for use on narrowboats and cruisers. RCR recommends replacing the filter every 12 months, and is hoping to offer a free disposal and recycling service in the future.
