Live well ? FL bird

livinshallowlivinshallow Posts: 9 Deckhand
I have the typical 2 live well set up, original set up.   Large well or release well recirculates water when on the trailer automatically.  Small well does not.  My question is how do I recirculate the large well on the water.  Ie taking bait up the fresh water river, or in mud?  I think even if I put a separate pump in the well it will still drain out of the inflow pipe.

    If you want to recirculate the water in the release well without introducing water via the sea chest you will need to install  two shut off valves one for each of the hose (fill and over flow). Buy doing this you now eliminate introducing raw water or loosing the water level via the over flow.

    Now you need to plumb a separate pump with a pickup near the bottom and the output near the top. see video: 

    Connect the new pump to one of the accessories switches.... Pete
