    RXP bilge pump install... Transom outlet ???'s

    Im getting ready to do my bilge pump install soon. Dont really want to put another bypass fitting anywhere. How many of you guys have drilled out that extra fitting at the transom and used it instead? Looks like it will accept a 3/4" hose fitting will it not? Just curious if many people are using it.

    If you hook it up below water level your gonna need a 1 way valve to keep water from coming in.

    I can run a check valve. I just really didnt want to drill another hole in my glass.

    Yes you can... but a check valve can get clogged easily, and be another nightmare as you will be taking on water Not worth it IMO... you don't need any issues with your bilge pump set-up... especially if you remove your bailers

    on top of what everyone else said , a 3/8 hose is way small for a bilge pump and will greatly reduce what it can pump , most are 1/2 to 3/4 , read the fine print , you might cut a 500 gpm pump down to less than 1/2 its rated volume

    I'm struggling with the same thing right now. I don't mind drilling there, but I get a lot of oil and such in my bilge just because I'm messy, and always working on my ski. If I put my bilge outlet out the back like in the picture, I'm going to get oil & coolant and all kinds of greasy slipery stuff on my mats. Anyone have a good place I could put the outlet above the waterline that wouldn't run down the back mats?
