I am installing a new bilge blower because mine is so loud I can't tell if my motor is running without looking at the tach. I am going with one of the newer inline style blowers. While I am at it I would like to redo the tubing leading to the bilge. I was wondering if there is any reason one couldn't use rigid 3" PVC pipe? It would make for a much cleaner look and would last darn near forever. I just hate the look of the "dryer vent hose." I would use a rubber flex coupler from the tubing to the blower. Has anyone ever done this before? Pros/cons???
I like the idea of rigid tubing you can have it go where you want im gonna do that to my boat thanks for the idea. My only question is do you only need a fan to pump air out or can you have 2 fans one to blow in and one to blow out
