    Default Bait well plumbing ?s

    What all is needed to plumb in a baitwell? My boat has 2 bait wells built into the back with 3/4" thru hulls coming out the sides. I did some googleing and most set ups I saw were way more involved then what I think I need. I can keep bait alive all day in a damn bucket with a $7 air pump, I can't see the need for back up pumps, different switches and valves, and multiple holes in my hull. I just want to be able to aerate the water, recycle it with fresh periodically and drain it out at the end of the day. What a good cost efficient way to go about this?

    Thanks

    Here's a cheap version. I've done this a lot.

    It doesn't seem that anyone knows exactly what you are asking. The aeration part is easy...doesn't anyone know the plumbing/fill/empty aspects???

    Surely someone here can help Travis with this project.
