I have a 2000 189 and I am trying to modify my live well drain pipes.......1 1/2" PVC is too big and 1 1/4" PVC is too small.....I even tried 1 3/8" outside diameter flex PVC hose and that was slightly too small. Any suggestions?

I have FL built 189 and need to replace other pipe in the livewell, the one water flows in. Have not found a fit. Any help there?

The original push in design was poorly conceived. Its totally worth it to replump with new pipes and water input. I think most people that found themselves wrestling with that design switched it out completely to new standpipes that screw in. There are several options for that. Its an easy fix and not very much to do and it works much better than the original. If you switch it you probably will want to rework the water inflow too to a different design such as clamshell and get rid of that that other inflow standpipe.

Just FYI, I removed the original standpipes, which constantly came out of the opening, as well as trapping small bait behind the standpipe. I made the new standpipes out of PVC to screw into the base by epoxying threads into the opening. By having different size pipes I can adjust the amour of water and weight I have in the wells, and the pipes are close enough to the curvature of the well that bait no longer gets trapped.
