View Full Version : O Ring for Ballast filter/strainer..

10-31-2008, 05:16 PM
as is addressed in the winterization threads, it is important not to lose your o-ring on the ballast filter/strainer... well, i did last fall when I winterized... so all summer it leaked when filling the ballast.. I never got around to finding one to replace.

I was ordering some other parts today from my Moomba dealer and had them check on that part.. they said you would have to order the entire strainer kit to get the o-ring.. no big deal.. I had read on here that someone suggested going to pool/spa supply to get one.

Anyone know specifically part size or an Online spot to get these?
Not a big deal, but had it on my mind while taking care of some small things.

I've checked all around...I can't find one. I remember hearing that pool supply places have them (or close approximations that work)...but I haven't driven to the one supply place near me to find out. Please post if you find one that works, I'll do the same.

I can't get over to my boat for a while.. can you read a name brand on the filter strainer housing?

Are you guys refering to the sherwood water strainers??


Discount Inboard marine usually has everything you are looking for. Below is the link to the strainers and all of the parts you could potentialy need.

If so go to the bottom of this link and see if this is what you are looking for.

Great find..plus the link has a couple of other parts I was needing for my ballast install plans for winter!
Thanks MUCH.
I don't have the time to ride around looking for a part.. Only way to get from moomba was the entire kit..!
