Recommended Posts

i'm putting a bilge pump in my tank & want to run the hose & power leads out through the tank lid, but how do i make it water tight & so i can still take lid on & off -- is there some kind of hoselock fitting i could use ???

You the dude who asked me on eBay?


You need a self closing electrical gland £1 this will be a water tight seal around the wires.


You can then drill a hole in the lid for your pipe connections.

For the pipe




Place bilge pump on bottom of tank. You need a small piece of hose from bilge pump to a piece of conduit. Then the conduit keeps the pump on the base of the tank. You connect the conduit onto the above connector in the lid.


Then connect hose to above connector with either a trigger or tap so you can turn water on and off.


Ideally you want to aim for 20mm -25mm throughout your system.


Hose lock connections will be too restrictive.
