        usage as bilge pump discharge

        By Bill

        from Northern Virginia

        About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Easy To Install

        Cons

        • Use elbow for sharp turn

        Best Uses

        • High flow low restrictio

        Comments about Series 162 Polyester Reinforced Clear PVC Tubing:

        The product was very easy to install through hidden passages. It provides higher capacity flow for the same bilge pump using the corigated wire reinforced hose. It does require elbows for the sharp corrners as the hose will kink in those situations.
