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.

    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
