    1996 2002 trophy livewell drainage clogged-gctid825802

    Just wondering if anyone on here has had an issue with a clogged live well drain tube for the in step livewell? Seems a small cap from a bottle of dish soap has worked its way into my drain, cant find access or anyway to get it out of the flow. Im not even sure what the company used for the drain if its plastic piping or rubber hose or what. Dont use the livewell much and ocean water usually works its way up the drain tubes into the well if i leave the stop pipe out..so normally its plugged from the well anyway. Would like to get it out of there if possible any link for plumbing schematic or info is appreciated,

    It is a plastic/rubber hose on barbed fittings.

    It can be accessed through here. This is the compartment next to the port chair.




    Another thing that you can do is find a 3/4 Street Ell fitting and a short piece of 3/4 pvc pipe. Make the pipe to where it come to within a few inches of the lid when closed and the street ell is inserted in the drain hole. (this will allow the "live" well to keep a descent water level.) when you are ready to drain completely just pull it out of the drain hole.

      Another tip is to remove the diaphragm pump from on top the fuel tank (under the splashwell) and replace it with a macerator pump.

        If I am reading this right, you have got a small lid caught in the drain pipe from the fishwell? Have you tried compressed air to push it through? Suggest trying from the outside so it comes out where it went in. You may get lucky and not have to disassemble anything.

        Also trying a plumbing snake that may also wiggle it out.

          Another thing, there should be no water in it unless you are leaving the seacock open. The drain tube should be located above the water line.

          If you lease the seacock open it can be forced past the pump and into the well.
