What filter is this

This is filter in a Benateau First 32s5.
It is port side aft of the engine.
I was only on the boat a few minutes the owner has to go so I didn't get a chance to trace the hoses.

The fact that it seems full of something caught my attention. Not sure what that is about.
Figure someone on here may have seen this before..

Looks like an old model Par/Jabsco course in-line water filter, new ones run $20-30

Is it supposed to have all that stuff in it?
Looks like leaves but must be the filter elements.

Re: What filter is this

Looks like a small flow in-line stainer ... probably connected to a raw water supply for cooling a refrig., a raw water supply for a RO unit, a raw water supply for a propshaft seal, or a small bilge pump strainer - especially for an old style diaphragm type bilge pump, etc. etc. etc. You twist off the top to get to the 'screen'.

With all that 'crud' in it, its probably serving a small bilge pump.

I'll trace it out to see what it is connected to and open it out to clean it.

Re: What filter is this

Hey,

The 'filter' is usually just small screen. It's designed to keep debris, like leaves, grass, feathers, etc from getting into pumps. It's very easy to service, just be careful when you screw it back on. It's easy to crack the plastic bowl if you try to make it too tight (don't ask me how I know ).

You guys are right of course. It is connected to the bilge pump line.
