rangerrick63 send me your pics. I've been contemplating doing the backyard Home Depot version as well. Was the T fitting brass/metal or hardended plastic? What were the brass fittings for? What do you mean exactly by hard wall hose?

Does anyone know off hand what the diameter of the supply hose is for the 496HO?

I did a similar thing, bought a '"T" for sea water supply and bought the rest of the stuff at local hose/hydraulic supply house. I too can take some pictures and send them to you if you want.

Made my tees and elbows for the tees and the flush attachment from S/S. The left one was a 1st attempt with a larger bung. I remade the tees too have a standard threaded bung for a 3/4" ID hose shown on the right hand side with the S/S fitting. The 4 elbows were 3/4" s/s pipe that I turned the hose hose barb onto, then cut the pipe at a 45* and welded it in a 90* config. The plastic elbow was just for layout planning. No plastic fittings were used.

Use a hard wall hose. Don't want the sea water pump to suck it flat.
