I found a one way valve on the primary pump hose just below the ER/Laz bulkhead.

Clearly 37 years of whatever made a mess of things on these old rubber hoses. Oil, gunk, fuel, salt water...bleh.

Now to cleaning and replacing.

I like the safety wire on the hose clamps, I suppose it is designed to keep them from sliding off the hose barbs...

Those tapered / cone seacocks look to be in great shape. They are fairly easy to rebuild. In your case, disassembly and relubing is likely all that is necessary. There are several internet articles on servicing them. Take a look at this one.

Still need to install the high water hose and source new hose for the manual pump but what a difference.

Also trying to find a way to get loops in there without cutting open the cockpit bulwark

I did stand in front of a can of Bilge Koat for like 20 minutes but decided thatís a Ďnextí project

Wow. For a moment I thought I was looking at my bilge hoses. I will be crawling around replacing hoses too this spring. I missed it. What are you using as replacement hose?

Trident sanitation hose 1 1/18" although I could've probably used 1" with the older bilge pumps....i do plan to replace the lower pump and newer pumps all seem to be 1 1/8" outlets now.

Bought 50 ft for about $105 from Fisheries. Enough for three lines.

I'm just happy to have a clean bilge and clear water again.

I'm also happy that in my before and after tests the lower pump can now keep up with a completely open engine seacock. Previously it wouldn't due to both backwash from the T connection and any leaks in the hose.


So so so had to resist the urge to paint the bilge...drives me crazy to not have it shiny and new down there...but alas a project for another time.

Bilge Hose. Best Replacement?

I bought them but have not installed as technically they are prohibited by ABYC and prone to failure in both directions and excessive head pressure in deep bilges for centrifugal pumps. Good article here: https://www.proboat.com/2017/04/many...-check-valves/

I do however think I have enough room for a proper anti-siphon solution under the laz.

Then to overcome the annoying backwash pump cycling Iíll have to adjust the lower pump float.

Installed vented loops today. One of two done. Not 12Ē but much better than before.

If I may suggest, it would be a good idea to secure those hoses that run along that bulkhead. If I'm visualizing that correctly, in a beam sea, they will be swinging with each wave. Not good for the hose or the vented loop. Home Depot and Lowes sell PVC pipe hangers (C clamp with 2 screw holes) in the electrical department for hanging PVC electrical pipe. Sizes available to go over 1/2" to 3" pipe. Lots of uses on a boat!
