    I'm throwing that crap away and getting some clear hose. If it fails later I'll just replace it.

    Chunk that spa hose!!! I have it in 1 1/2" and 1" and all of it is in the trash can. That stuff will not stretch or compress. Hose clamps are powerless against it. Got is at West Marine and figured it would be ok...it is not. I went home at lunch and verified that the port is 1 1/8" with a pair of calipers. I then grapped some scrap, streched it and then fitted it over the port with the hose I got from Wake Makers.

    Well, that white spa hose has fooled more than one of us. It looks fantastic- durable, etc. But, it is no good for this application. Thanks for the effort, Jesse.

    WAIT!!! Send me the 1" spa hose! I actually really like the stuff even though it's hard to work with.

    Edit: maybe there are different types of spa hose? The stuff I have is black and looks exactly like the stuff in Jesse's pic above. You can see a short piece of it in this pic...

    All yours. PM me your address. I should warn you it does have blood and human hair on it from beating myself over the head with it.

    The hose I had purchased is white and will not bend, clamp or cut and is impervious to a heat gun. It must have been designed by Lucifer himself.

    You couldn't do that with this stuff if you had a year.

    Yup, went with reversible pumps. I still need to drill two holes in the side of the boat. I was hoping they would drill themselves, darn.

    Hose I used looks exactly like jesseCs'. Had to work with the hose a bit, but it works well.

    post up some pics in the mods, wondering about the wiring and switches.
