Raw Water Manifold
We do not recommend the practice of supplying raw or filtered water to multiple “consumers” from a single inlet source (ie: toilets, wash-down pumps, air conditioners, generators, etc.) but we do recognize that it is common practice to do so, particularly when one or more of the consumers operates intermittently. GROCO's patented RWM Raw Water Manifold requires that you use the proper pipe or hose sizes, thus reducing the possibility of dangerous flow restrictions to consumers.
The barbed outlet is connected to the primary consumer (your main engine, for example) and is smaller than the threaded inlet which screws into a seacock or strainer outlet of the next larger pipe size (see sample installations). The larger threaded end requires that a larger strainer or seacock be used, thus promoting adequate flow to consumers. The combined cross-sectional flow of the consumers does not exceed the cross-section of the threaded inlet.
