i have a simer pump and might need to put a 90 degree turn on it, can i put it on the pump outlet or do i need to distance it a bit from the pump?

That should be fine Ty, the impeller pumps produce plenty of head, its the centrifugal pumps that need straight runs in and out.

darren,
you get your boat yet?

also, simer just emailed me back and said a y is ok but a 90 would have to be 12" away.

Yes a 90 too close to the pump creates a problem. When I did version 1 I used a 90 and could not drain the rear sacks. Instead of using a 90 on my new system I just used longer hose and seem to get less flow restriction from a bend than from a 90. I also mounted my pumps lower in the boat.

What are you working on now… ? I though your system was already complete??

I have a 90 degee coming out of the pump plus then another probably 15 feet away I have a series of 90's in my splitting valves. It works fine and has been working great all year.

Can someone tell me who makes those reversable pumps and what's the GPH? I want a couple so I don't have to keep switching ends for a added system.

The Simer model 1285 is 8.5gpm or 510gph actual NOT the 10gpm or 600gph that they advertise.

Those marketing types never seem to get the data quite right

I am actually taking it out of the small battery box. after owning for a while i realize i do not need the box. I looked around for relocation and cannot find anything. I am just moving it back right up against the boat batt. i am using ball valves to manifold the sacs. i am doing it differently though. on the rear two sacs I am putting the valve just before the quick release to the sacs. Very simple but you know the motto "keep it simple stupid".
