Setting up your Livewell or Bait Well Tank with the proper Plumbing, Pumping, Aerators, Overflow Fittings, Draining, Spray Bars, Bilge Pumps, and Water Recirculation is key.
 
There are several ways to plumb and install your Livewell or Bait Well Tank. Something you should consider when designing your tank and if you are unsure of which setup to use or what pumping, aeration, overflow and draining fittings you need our crew of experienced experts will assist you in your design and help you with any livewell or bait well trouble shooting issues you may have.

  This Livewell or Bait Well setup is very simple.

As you can see by the diagram the overflow "T's" into the drain line allowing you to freshen and recirculate the water in your livewell or bait well tank. This design is best if you are doing a side mount livewell or if you don't want to drill an above waterline hole in your boat.

 

  Typically one would use 1-1/8" elbow thru-hulls with a screen for the tank overflow, 1-1/8" straight

thru-hull for the boat transom drain, 1-1/8" "T" fitting to connect the two, an adjustable aetator nozzle for water flow control, an 1-1/8" hose, 3/4" drain fitting with a 3/4" to 1-1/8" hose adapter. Pump would depend on the size and number fo the Livewells and Bait Wells you will have installed in your boat. 

 

  

 

 

 

 This Livewell or Bait Well setup is simple and easy.

As you can see by the diagram the overflow is a stack tube that seals the drain (Threaded or Push-In) line allowing you to freshen and recirculate the water in your livewell or bait well tank. This design is used often on Bait Wells. Simple installation because there is not a need for additional drilling in the livewell or bait tank if you are doing a side mount livewell or if you do not want to drill an above waterline hole in your boat.

 

  Typically one would use 1-1/8" threaded thru-hulls with a pre-filtered threaded overflow tube for the tank overflow, 1-1/8" straight thru-hull for the boat transom drain, an adjustable aetator nozzle for water flow control, and 1-1/8" hose. Pump size would depend on the size and number fo the Livewell and Bait Well Tanks you will have installed in your boat.

 

 

 

 

  This Livewell or Bait Well setup is easy to install.

As you can see by the diagram the overflow outlets directly through the hull of the boat above the water line allowing you to freshen and recirculate the water in your livewell or bait well tank. This design is best if you are doing a horizontal mount livewell.

 

  Typically one would use 1-1/8" straight thru-hulls with a screen for the tank overflow, 1-1/8" straight thru-hull for the above water line overflow drain, 1-1/8" I.D. hose to connect the two, an adjustable aetator nozzle for water flow control, two 3/4" drain thru-hulls (one for the livewell or bait well tank and one for the thru-transom drain outlet)  with a 3/4" I.D. hose connecting the two. Pump would depend on the size and number fo the Livewell and Bait Well Tanks you will have installed.
