Re: Wire reinforced clear hose
The clear vinyl we have now has held up for 8 years and, while slightly opaque now, you can still see flow. Agreed, you are more likely to see the tiny bubbles. However, if she isn't pumping at all, you can see the water sitting level below the strainer or pump and not have to wait for exhaust water. You can also tell if the thru hull is blocked, as the water will rise and fall with the thru hull open due to boat motion.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
