Re: 1" Strainer for a 1 1/4" hose and intake?

The difference is much more than I expected.

If 'normal' rubber hose has ball park 150% more more friction to flow, one could imagine that the black, poly corrugated bilge hose being sold by some chandleries could have 300% (or even more) friction than pipe, depending of course on how deep the internal corrugation ridges are.

This is very useful info for the plumbing I am doing at the moment.

Thanks Sailorchic
