THRU-HULL INSTALLATION

PREFERRED TWO PUMP INSTALLATION

A two pump system is the preferred system of boat builders wanting to provide a superior livewell. A simple two pump system provides a back-up in the event of pump failure.

FIRST SYSTEM: Install a standard livewell pump such as a Rule 500, 700, or 1100 GPH to exchange water occasionally in the well. When using a ¾" pump inlet, a 1 ½" drain such as the KA109 is required. SECOND SYSTEM: Install either the KA700RK or KA110RK. This will allow fish to remain healthy while the standard livewell pump is off when the boat is in contaminated water, or when the pump is air-locked. Many boats have the livewell pump installed on the transom. When the boat is on a plane, the intake of the pump is out of the water and is ineffective. The boat can also be trailered while the bait remains in the livewell. This system always remains on while fish are in the well.

ONE PUMP INSTALLATION

Ultimate systemThe one pump system utilizes the Patented Ultimate Anti-Lok system. If the pump becomes air-locked by air entering the high speed pick-up, the air in the pump is immediately discharged through the anti-airlock check valve.

This installation is more complicated to install and there is no pump back-up system in the event of pump failure.

Optional Strainer & Valve
  • Valve A open, B closed -- outside water flowing through livewell
  • Valve A closed, B open -- recirculating livewell water only
  • Valve A closed, B closed -- strainer D can be cleaned
  • Valve A open, B open -- livewell will drain
  • Check valve C prevents back flow
