90 degree turns

Hi all, can I put 90 degree hose barbs in my macerator to thru hull hose to facilitate routing in this tight space? Thanks

Yes, you can. However I think that you should only use the minimal amount possible. Each 90 will add friction to the output and creat a place for build up of material, even though it is a "slurry" downstream of the macerator.
