Questions & Answers about Shields Bilge Hose:

2014-06-20SAFETY SAFETY asked: how long is this hose?

+Expand Answers

2014-06-20JAMES BOSSERD: This is sold by the foot, so the quantity you order will be the length of the hose.

2014-06-24BILL KNOPF: The hose is sold by the foot.
Either remove the old hose and measure, or estimate the approximate route of the hose and add several feet for curves and routing. It always takes more hose than you think.

2014-05-17A shopper asked: Is this hose suitable for self bailing cockpits and/or galley sinks?

+Expand Answers

2014-06-24BILL KNOPF: Yes.

2012-07-20A shopper asked: if I order 10 feet of hose, does it come as one piece or in 10 one foot sections? ... thanks

+Expand Answers

2012-07-20Ryan L: It will come as one 10 foot section.

2012-05-23JUDI MOHLER asked: do I match sizes of hoses and thru hull fittings by just using the same diameter? In other words, if the measurement on the thru hull fitting is 1 1/8" then I get the pump hose at 1 1/8" also. Want to get it right the first time I order.

+Expand Answers

2012-05-24ROBERT ASHABRANNER: Yes, you are correct, match hose ID to OD of the thru hull fitting, so for the 1-1/8" thru hull the correct hose ID is 1-1/8"

2012-05-24MATTHEW COHEN: Correct. I believe that this hose is measured by the ID (inside diameter). If you order 1 1/8 hose that means it should fit over a 1 1/8 fitting.

2012-05-24FRANK GUIDO: Yes you get a hose diameter that is the same as the barb fitting on the threw hull. It's a tight fit and you will have to push with some force but the hose will stretch around the barb.

2012-05-24WILLIAM MOHRMAN: Hose is measured on the inside diameter of the hose. 1 1/8" is the inside diameter of the hose. However, when measuring your thru hull fitting, you measure the fitting neck where the hose would clamp onto the fitting past the barb (flaired end where you shove the hose over). This measurement should be a slightly bigger than 1 1/8" to allow for a snug fit.
You can also measure the inside diameter of the thru hull fitting, but you will find this to be somewhat smaller than 1 1/8" due to the wall thickness of the fitting.

2011-10-03PHIL SIGMUND asked: Is there an adapter to go from rul-80 (1-1/8) to standard 1-1/4 plumbing fittings?

+Expand Answers

2011-10-04MORRIS CALI: This hose is intended as a bildge pump discharge hose and should be routed from a bildge pump discharge to a through hull fitting or grey water discharge above the warter line only, that is why it is so cheap. If you are connecting a sink to a thru hull fitting below the waterline you need to use a good quality hose such as bellowsflex that can be purchased a a local industrial hose distributor, It is wire wound which keeps it from collapsing plus it is tough and is not subject to bending or breaking. If you want to sink your boat use the cheaper hose but it is not designed to be used under the water line.

Either remove the old hose and measure, or estimate the approximate route of the hose and add several feet for curves and routing. It always takes more hose than you think.

2012-05-23JUDI MOHLER asked: do I match sizes of hoses and thru hull fittings by just using the same diameter? In other words, if the measurement on the thru hull fitting is 1 1/8" then I get the pump hose at 1 1/8" also. Want to get it right the first time I order.

2012-05-24ROBERT ASHABRANNER: Yes, you are correct, match hose ID to OD of the thru hull fitting, so for the 1-1/8" thru hull the correct hose ID is 1-1/8"

2012-05-24MATTHEW COHEN: Correct. I believe that this hose is measured by the ID (inside diameter). If you order 1 1/8 hose that means it should fit over a 1 1/8 fitting.

2012-05-24FRANK GUIDO: Yes you get a hose diameter that is the same as the barb fitting on the threw hull. It's a tight fit and you will have to push with some force but the hose will stretch around the barb.

2012-05-24WILLIAM MOHRMAN: Hose is measured on the inside diameter of the hose. 1 1/8" is the inside diameter of the hose. However, when measuring your thru hull fitting, you measure the fitting neck where the hose would clamp onto the fitting past the barb (flaired end where you shove the hose over). This measurement should be a slightly bigger than 1 1/8" to allow for a snug fit.
You can also measure the inside diameter of the thru hull fitting, but you will find this to be somewhat smaller than 1 1/8" due to the wall thickness of the fitting.

2011-10-04MORRIS CALI: This hose is intended as a bildge pump discharge hose and should be routed from a bildge pump discharge to a through hull fitting or grey water discharge above the warter line only, that is why it is so cheap. If you are connecting a sink to a thru hull fitting below the waterline you need to use a good quality hose such as bellowsflex that can be purchased a a local industrial hose distributor, It is wire wound which keeps it from collapsing plus it is tough and is not subject to bending or breaking. If you want to sink your boat use the cheaper hose but it is not designed to be used under the water line.

Comments about Shields Bilge Hose:

After about 10 years, the aging hose cracked at the cuff where it was clamped to the emergency bilge pump. I doubt any liquid had ever passed through it nor had it ever seen any sunlight. This sort of subtle failure could easily result in the loss of a boat. If you install this hose, best to check its condition annually.
