ok so follow my thought, I have attached to pic's I have installed a pool inground before and the pool pump hit me. get a pool strainer there plastic for chemichals and has a quick access top and clear so you can see what you go inthere most are 1 1/2 in and our or 2"** or you can get the pump with it and if you put a t on the top going to the engine and a valve you can use the top for a fire hose or a great washdown or you can pump it back down to blow out the clog. on the other engine I have twin engines.

I don't think I would trust a swimming pool strainer or pump for my underwater plumbing.* There are many styles of approved marine strainers available that will do the job.
