Recirculator

5 posts in this topic

I'm not certain that I know exactly what this is supposed to do as I never use it, but correct me if I'm wrong.....this function recirculates the water within the livewell by pumping it out and then pumping it back in with oxygen added? Is that right?

How many people use the recirculator? I guess I've always just used the aerator on the timer setting.

The recirc pumps water from the drain port on the bottom of the livewell, runs it through the livewell pump and then back into the livewell.

Some people like to use them when they're running between spots on the same lake.

I suspect the intent at the time was that you could put it on recirc and keep your fish alive until you get back to your house or wherever you're going to clean them. This isn't allowed anymore in some states due to Aquatic Nuisance Species and the potentail to transfer them from lake to lake.

Can (or do) you run the aerator and the recirc at the same time?

Nope - the aerator and the recirculator run off the same pump on most boats (and I'm pretty sure yours is that way - some fiberglass boats have seperate recirc / livewell pumps). So the only difference between recirc and aerator is where the water is coming from - aerate comes from the lake and the excess water is dumped out the overflow, recirc pulls water from the bottom of the livewell and dumps it back in the top.

    • What specific things make him indecent or classless?    Did he grab women by the pu**y? Did he make fun of a disabled reporter? Did he call most Mexicans rapists? Did he make fun of John McCain because he was captured in Vietnam? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was born in Kenya? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was a Muslim? Did he say Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever"? Did he say "Laziness is a trait in the blacks"?   I'd be interested to know what things Obama has done that are more indecent and classless than this.
    • Imagine an Obama who loved this country and had 8 years to show that.  The guy is smart, charismatic, and very likeable.  Instead we had 8 years of anti american ideology, lies, and race baiting. He chose that path, not me.
    • What reasons did you vote for Trump? Did it ever occur to you that those reasons may have been just things to get you to vote for him?
    • I know. I guess I forgot to put the  after my post.     Court decisions is what I was referring to because I also do not know of any laws officially separating church and state. There may be laws at the state or local level I don't know. The 1st amendment is not always interpreted by courts the same way. 
    • He has chosen to skip over decency and you earn respect, he is the one who had 8 years to show respect and class and failed.  He could have been the greatest president ever and unite this country but chose otherwise.  Even in his last days he is despicable.  That said i wont bow down to Trump and he needs to earn the respect obama has not.  Time will tell.
    • Anyone who thinks this country isn't heading to single payer, government funded healthcare is fooling themselves. I'm not in favor of it but we may as well just do it and get it over with now.
    • But will you recognize it? Just like I am sure that President Obama has signed legislation and done other things that YOU think are "good things"  for America that Sledneck doesn't recognize.
    • I give up.  Because it gets people to vote for them?    
    • Why would they worry about the debt, we can just print money????
    • It is a special accommodation for a particular religion.     No law states that that I am aware of.  Perhaps you have more information.  Just some court decisions which while they may be binding are not laws.
