As for the after-the-pump strainer: what unit is that? Do you have a picture of how it hooks in, or a link? And how often do you have to clean it out?
I clean out at the end of a week of spraying turf but never clogged yet.
Here are some links:
Get the 1/2" Bulkhead assm.
Get 5 feet of 3/8" clear Braided.
Get Hose Barb Male Elbow 1/2"X3/8" EL1238PP
Get the 122 Line strainer 1/2" and ask in the notes section for a 50 or 80 Mesh filter. Order 2 extra bowl gaskest as well. Lighty grease gasket when you remove bowl, and it wont dislodge from the grove and get pinched/leak. Another trick.
The 1/2" nylon plug to put in, where you remove the 3/8" hose barb with
1/2" threads at the manifold can be bought at a hardware store....PVC Nylon and teflon tape so no leaks......Key as this is a Suction Line.
Keep us posted.
