    groco strainer+ shut off ball valve

    First off i want to thank the person whom i saw this extra mod for the groco strainer add on in case you get towed.

    THANK YOU

    this is what i got to add before the water strainer i hope the passage for the water will not be restrained by its smaller openning?

    I saw that also in the other thread. awesome idea. i had to tow in one of mine last year after got something in the grate, and it is a long ways when your going that slow. The pvc are very cheap and easy to install.

    i had the choice between the pvc and this one the pvc is the one i saw on the pictures here but the valve for the pvc on/off was stiff and hard even the plumber who is in the buisiness for over 20 years recommanded me the ball valve easy on/off and wide easy to use handle.
    it only cost $2 more also so it was worth it.

    what about the openning of the ball valve is this enough for the water so there is sufficiant water passage look at the first pic?

    I have to wonder how the metals in the valve will react to salt water.

    Just do a little PM on the valve, take it loose from the hoses once a year and put a litle grease on the ball and work it back and forth, also its what $7 for a new one at the hardware store?

    No thanks, all it takes is once to forget it's closed and your melt stuff (faster than you can say, "did I open the valve"). Just carry a clamp to pinch off the hose. If you break down that much that you need to install a valve. Find a better mechanic.

    It's a nice idea, but all it takes is once to forget. One burst of speed and things are ruined.
