New Tank Monitoring System Uses App or MFD

TankAssure monitoring system from Raritan

Sept 28, 2023

Finicky, inaccurate internal mechanical float sensors on water and holding tanks driving you nuts? The new TankAssure monitoring system from Raritan changes this.

Ideal for OEM and refit, the sealed and submersible plug-and-play sensor minimizes wiring complexity and simplifies the installation process. It provides precise readings via the Raritan TankAssure companion app or simple readings through the LED panel. With an optional adapter, the device will display data on an NMEA 2000 networked MFD. It debuts at IBEX in Tampa this weekend.

Made in the USA, the maintenance-free TankAssure has a durable, rust-proof stainless steel sensor housing for reliability and a long service life. It comes with a 25′ sensor cable. TankAssure works with black, grey and potable water tanks of any material up to 40″ H and isn’t affected by sludge or foam buildup, nor changes in conductivity or temperature. Should an obstruction interfere with a holding tank vent, BVD® (Blocked Vent Detection) technology alerts the user and helps in diagnosing the issue. The device runs on 10–27V DC.

Its LED monitor panel and companion mobile app enable easy setup and calibration of up to four full or empty tanks using only the height. Data displays in a choice of gauge or bar format. Users can assign names to tanks, set blocked, high and low alarm thresholds, and select a level update rate. Tanks not in use can be temporarily removed from the display. For added security, the app can be password-protected.

TankAssure comes with an LED monitor panel and one sensor and costs US$910; additional sensors) are US$540 each. The companion app for Android or iOS is free. The NMEA 2000 adapter is US$510.

The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
