A Message From Our Sponsors: 

All-in-one biofouling prevention and sea-strainer system by ElectroSea
ElectroStrainer is the first all-in-one smart biofouling-prevention system with integrated sea strainer. ElectroStrainer replaces your existing sea strainer and prevents marine growth through the system’s seawater lines by generating chlorine directly inside its strainer basket. The award-winning ElectroStrainer combines three components: an innovative biofouling prevention device, a hydrodynamic sea strainer, and an advanced, smart flow-monitoring system.


  •    Never descale again. Descaling your seawater lines and air conditioner with strong acids is a temporary and expensive fix to the never-ending problem of unwanted marine growth.
  • Stop overworking your air conditioners. Biofouling causes air conditioners to overwork, shortening their lifespan. Remove biofouling from the equation and get the most from your boat’s AC.
  • Stop cleaning your strainer basket. ElectroStrainer keeps your sea strainer basket clean longer. Spend less time in the engine room battling marine growth in your strainer basket.
