    Check Valve?

    Anyone know where i can get a plastic 3/4 inch check valve with barb connections ? Im gona do a bilge set up and im gona run it out the thru hull connector thats allready in my pump shoe. I want to get the best flow so i dont feel like looping it up then down so im gona run a short peice of hose with a check valve. Or do you guys think i should just loop it above the water line? Any input would be great.

    loop it.... a check valve needs SOME force to push it open... that alone is gonna drop your GPH rating... plus if the check valve ever got stuck open with debris, seaweed, salt build up you'd have a problem anyway and there went your theory of avoiding the loop

    just zip tie the hose to bracket where the bailers are looped up high, then drop it down to the pump support.
