Non return valve

Recommended Posts

Any thoughts on these, as I will need to fit one in a 3/4inch pipe from the bilge pump. The outlet is only just above the waterline and under the water when heeled over when sailing. The manual pump has a non return system built in but the electric pump does not. If I just join into the outlet pipe alone the manual pump will return the water to the bilge via the electric pump. Are there any better than others?

Follow your engineer's instincts Ian, :bow the simplest valve is probably the most reliable, I quite like the flapper valve,but the safest and most reliable is a seperate line for each pump. Redundancy without intervention for each. :D
