fire monitors
« on: June 09, 2008, 01:25:45 PM »

I want to fit 4 fire monitors to my wimpey seahunter just like the real thing and hopefully get them all to work.

First question - are there any ready made monitors available on the market which are about 20mm in height?  I have checked alot of websites but all the monitors are far bigger than i require.

if there arent any available can any one give me some advice on how to make them?

Second question - there are 4 monitors and 1 pump, will this work?  Or will i just get a pathetic dribble out the monitor and onto the deck of my boat?  how would i go about piping the 4 monitors onto 1 pump?


Cheers,


Gary

I think you might have to scratch build some,any way simple to get 4 pumps working off 1 pump get some windscreen washer t pieces or even aquarium t pieces and join up till you get 4 outlets.I run 6 monitors off 1 pump see below

That is simple enough - looks like a trip to the pet shop for me!

Go on the red bank models site(see traders directory) and see if any are of the right shape and cut them down
