    Possibly. It has a twist/lock type union around the perimeter. I noticed it was leaking slightly earlier today but didn’t have time to investigate further. Basically I would remove it and join pipe direct from tank to pump to fix the leak. I’ve not had a filter at this point on any other boat even though, perhaps, they are a good idea. Will have a closer look next visit.
    If anyone knows in the meantime please let me know.
    Thanks

    On the input side to the pump, I would say a filter, you will soon know when you take it apart and clean the crud out.
    Do you have a stopcock on the outlet from the tank? If not, then have a bucket and plug to hand!

    Filter. Fairly coarse if it is like the one I purchased last year, but mine had barb fittings for 1/2" pipe.

    Coarse Filter to protect the pump from any foreign object that has fallen in during filling.
