  • Snort tubing - shrink wrap?


    I have just installed a SNORT (small) in my Small World Model Blueback. I built a manifold out of Al tubing and epoxied it into the rear ballast section bulkhead. The spacing of the two Al tubes matches the spacing of the inlet/outlet on the SNORT pump. I used the supplied black tubing which was a bit of a pain to install.

    But now I'm thinking I could have used shrink wrap and installed the pump right against the manifold on the bulkhead. The inlet/outlet of the pump would butt up directly against the AL tubing manifold and the shrink wrap would be used only to hold the pump in place.

    Whatta ya think?

    Don't get cute!

    I'm worried that you're going to break off those molded pump body nipples. Do so and you're screwed!

    Keep it simple, damit!
