Universal Adapter Kit Pilot Program

Universal Deck Adapter Kits Pilot Program

Currently, SFEP has assembled 300 Universal Deck Adapter Kits to be distributed as a component of the DBW Clean Boating Kit during boat shows and major outreach events. Kits will also be made available on demand for interested boaters and at marinas until supplies run out.

The Universal Deck Adapter Kits will be composed of the adapter, printed instructions, and reusable gloves, all packaged in a reusable and USPS mail-approved tube.

Providing these deck adapters allows boaters to avoid the frustration of encountering damaged nozzles, and reduces wear and tear on the pumpout system. In addition, supplying this tool to boaters allows them to overcome challenges when using pumpout stations by making it simpler, cleaner, and a hands-free experience.

SFEP will create new outreach materials (instructions and a step-by-step video) to demonstrate how to use this tool and will feature these materials on SFEP’s website and in newsletter articles soon.

As this is a pilot program, SFEP has limited quantities to distribute. If you would like to order additional adapters, you may do so online or at various boating and marine supply stores.
