Does anybody know where I can get 1-1/8" fittings for a Tsunami pump? I need a couple 1-1/8" threaded to barbed fittings and I cant find them anywhere.

check out buywake.

It looks like all buywake has is the quick connect fittings. I am looking for a simple 1-1/8 female threaded to a hose barbed connection. You should be able to buy this sort of thing at any hardware store but since 1-1/8 is such an odd size I cant seem to find any.

do a search someone came up with a fairly unique, but simple way to make them work.

I posted a thread called "Finally figured out Tsunami manifold" that hasn't gone into the archives yet. In my quest, I also found a couple places selling the plastic elbows that come with the pumps. If that's not helpful, BI / FlyHigh will make custom fittings, but they aren't cheap. I had to get some made to thread the drain pumps directly onto my sacks.

Trace, <BR> <BR>What are the places you found that sell the plastic elbows? I just want to connect the pumps to the bottom of each bag for empty so that is really all I need. I found your thread on the intake manifold and another archived thread where somebody said they found some at Home Depot but I havent had any luck there. I am trying to keep this pretty simple because I plan on buying a new boat within a year or so so I want to be able to take it all out and put in the new boat therefore right now the system just consists of a pump thrown over the side for fill and an empty on each sac. Wont be totally automatic but will be better than doing it completely manually. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by maxx_wake on July 18, 2006)

I think you can buy them right from Attwood or their dealers...

maybe something like this is what you are looking for??? <BR><a href="http://www.wakeside.com/page/w/PROD/ballast_fittings/fly_high_pro_x_fitting_W733" target="_blank">http://www.wakeside.com/page/w/PROD/ballast_fittings/fly_high_pro_x_fitting_W733</a>

I found them somewhere like iboats.com or shipstore.com. Not sure, and I no longer have the link. <BR> <BR>The custom fittings I had made were for exactly that - connecting the pump directly to the sack. They are 1-1/8" female x male ProX threads (which are really just 3/4" NPT with an O-ring).

maxx_wake 07-18-2006 12:50 PM

Ok I think this is what I need: <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.iboats.com/mall/index.cgi?session_id=944830814&amp;cart_id=0046138 48&amp;category_id=217449&amp;list_time=1153247886 &amp;view_id=40099" target="_blank">http://www.iboats.com/mall/index.cgi?session_id=944830814&amp;cart_id=0046138 48&amp;category_id=217449&amp;list_time=1153247886 &amp;view_id=40099</a> <BR> <BR>If I bought a couple of these I should be able to just take out the thru hull and then screw the elbow onto the pump right? <BR> <BR>Trace, how much did the custom fittings from fly high cost you? While I think the part linked above should work the custom fitting would definatley be cleaner.

we were getting a lot of requests for that style fitting, we decided to make a run of them..i don't know the exact part # or price. Most likely not more than $10. <BR>It is made to screw onto the Tsunami pump drain end and thread directly to the bottom of the sac for draining. <BR>They have been made but have yet to "hit the market" so give us a call and we can figure this out.

Sorry I left no info: <BR> <BR>Barefoot International &amp; Fly High Mfg. <BR>414-964-3668

trace 07-18-2006 1:51 PM

That's not the fitting I was talking about. Here it is, and it's cheaper than when I last looked IIRC. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.greatoutdoors.com/attwood/pumpshosesandfittings/90deghosetothreadconnectors3890134389111181.html" target="_blank">http://www.greatoutdoors.com/attwood/pumpshosesandfittings/90deghosetothreadconnectors3890134389111181.html</a> <BR> <BR>I would go with the FlyHigh adapters, though. They will make for a MUCH cleaner installation, unless you're wanting a quick-release setup.

maxx_wake 07-18-2006 2:30 PM

Ok I think I will just go ahead and call and get the FlyHigh adapters. Thanks for all of the responses.
