    garden hose for bilge

    Would this be ok to use as the discharge for an electric bilge install? BTW. ITS a heavy duty rubber, flexible, Goodyear one, (not the p.o.s. stiff plastic.)

    I was never a fan of that plastic boat type bilge hose, or the clear vinyl tubing either... You should be fine as long as the ID matches the pump and bilge outlet... just make sure there are no kinks in the hose and depending on where you place the outlet, you might need a high loop to prevent backwash...

    Cool, I should be ok, its gonna be a short run of about two feet, straight out,under the grab handle. I was actually thinking about using the stock check valve from the old hose, or do you think it isn't needed?
