oh I gotcha, I thought you were thinking that those ends were threaded on, my bad, you can find those tees in stainless or brass, or make one up yourself.👍🏼👍🏼

If you are feeling like you want to make it up, as suggested, here's a parts breakdown.  (I used 5/8" hose fittings, but if you have 1/2" hose, those fittings are just as a available.  Home depot should carry all the parts indicated.  If you are in O.C., I like to use McFadden Dale Hardware.

Mcfadden Dale is like a really good Home Depot without all the crap you dont need. Lots of cool shit in there. They close at 5pm during the week and 12 or 1 on saturdays. Awesome place, clean, and organized. But a little pricey. But you will find what you are looking for.

I guess I have been completely over simplifying my junk.

From the jet pump to a barb by 3/4 mpt fitting into a 3/4" ball valve to a 3/4" mpt to 3/4" hose bibb adapter,  to a garden hose female to hose barb. Done.

About $25 in parts.

No plastic.

In not trusting some temporary Chinese piece of garbage to keep my boat floating.

Brass or nothing, and even that is sometimes questionable.

I use brass because it's readily  available, strong,  corrosion resistant and cheap.

If you have access to stainless fittings  (most of us do not), think about how much better that would be than a piece of ABS.

Most stainless I have used has been unreasonably heavy, not to mention expensive.

Speaking of heavy, how do you secure the 3/4 mpt fitting, 3/4" ball valve, 3/4" mpt, 3/4" hose bibb adapter, garden hose female, hose barb combo? Just clamp it to the stringer?

Mine's setup so the the engine flush part is removable when I'm not using it. However, everything else just rests on the floor of the bilge and I'm not a fan of that.

Gt I bet that's fixing to change... I work in the wholesale plumbing industry and have for prob the last 18 years or so... We are fixing to change all of our brass fittings and nipples over to stainless steel... Copper and brass are slowly pricing their selves out of the market... We can buy the ss fittings cheaper than we can the brass... It's just getting the set in their way plumbers to change lol
