Not sure if this will help, but here's where the livewell pump is mounted on our non-ET ProV...

Thanks Phil,

What I'm trying to determine is if I should do this myself or have a dealer do it for me $250, I have all the parts. A friend says I should do it and that it is easy. My reservation is, a 1" hole below the waterline is plumbed with a plastic pump inlet. So I'd like to see if the pump is directly mounted to the boat like in this video.

We have a 2012 searunner w/et. Maybe these will help.

Thank you, Dan. So here is my dilemma, I have a Rule 403 STC, strainer, etc. The dealer will be drilling the 1" hole and installing the pump, hose, etc and also connecting it to the sprayer in the fishbox. I'm not sure if I would need a valve since the hose goes up and if the aerator is closed, water will not flow. I've not seen that type of valve with thruhull anywhere and even then, how would i attach my pump to it.

I'll see what the dealer plans on doing.

The shut off valves are somewhat new and are for safety. We never had an issue without one but we were told when we purchased this boat that occasionally the connection would freeze and break allowing water into the hull and no way to stop it. Like I said, we never had an issue and we live in Montana with temperatures getting down to -30°F. Boat is kept in a heated garage but we fished with temp hovering around zero. I guess I would rather be safe than sorry so would look for a similar type setup.

Our boat has the same shut off valves for washdown and livewell. I would not want any thru-hull connection without a shut off valve. That said, I'm no fan of the plastic ones used on our boat and someday when I redo everything under the motorwell, I'll upgrade the valves too. ;)

Silver fox what do you think? I don’t have a pump for my rear livewell I use my washed down to fill live well what a bout splicing into wash down line and put a pump on is with a hose running to rear livewell? I don’t need to use it a lot but it would be Nice to flip a switch and it would put water in the back livewell!

Don't see any reason that wouldn't work, one supply line to two separate pumps should work fine. Might be advisable to only run one pump or the other rather than both at same time.
