Re: Water lift muffler and rerouting exhaust hose

From an engineering perspective, the addition of an elbow does add more "equivalent length" to the run, as mentioned earlier.

The thing to remember, though, is that the hose is NOT completely filled with water, like a "normal" pipe would be. Therefore, the additional "equivalent length" would be much less.

I see no reason that adding elbows would make much difference at all.

Good luck.

Re: Water lift muffler and rerouting exhaust hose

I also used a Vetus corrugated exhaust hose.
Never had ANY problems whatsoever.

Easy bends all the way.
