Ronix Pump issue

Anyone have any idea how the hose is connected to that flange. The end that connects to the pump is obviously clamped to the pump, but my hose ripped right above the black flange.... any ideas?

No idea how it is connected, but I wrapped mine in a bunch of electrical tape.  It has held for a few years now.

mine like completly diconnected. I will prob just remove the elbow and see if i can clamp it directly to the pump.

Honestly, it's time to trash it and stop throwing pumps over the side of the boat.  Plumb proper ballast and never deal with that crap again.

I have a reversible pump under the passenger seat plumbed into the bottom of the boat in the ski locker. When we need an extra bag filled we pull out the hose and hook it to quick connect. Switch for the pump is by the drivers seat.

I have the same pump and love it but would like to get to the point of not throwing the pump over the boat also.  Can you show pics and details of how you plumbed that in, parts used etc.  I would  love to do the same thing.

This is the proper solution for exposed bags.
