Question

Is this hose smooth bore?

Asked on 03/08/2018 by Gunny003 from Maine

Top Answer

No, the hose for the most part has the corrugated feel on the inside and out, but every foot there is a smooth spot like you see in the photo for plumbing connections.

No, its ribbed like the outside. Having said that, i use it for bilge discharge and seems to work fine. Sent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone

It's rifled. The ends are smooth to put on the pump and thru-hulls.

Answer Question

Question

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.

Asked on 05/23/2012 by Judi Mohler

Top Answer

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"

Answer

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.

Answered on 05/24/2012 by WILLIAM MOHRMAN

Answer

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.

Answered on 05/24/2012 by MATTHEW COHEN

Answer

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.

I used this hose to add a loop to my bilge pump output. It's been a while but it has been working fine and I notice no leaks.

Question

how long is this hose?

Asked on 06/20/2014 by safety safety

Top Answer

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.

Answer

This is sold by the foot, so the quantity you order will be the length of the hose.

Question

Is there an adapter to go from rul-80 (1-1/8) to standard 1-1/4 plumbing fittings?

Asked on 10/03/2011 by Phil Sigmund

Top Answer

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.
