Nifty Find from Strictly Sail Pacific
Is this device called the Filter Boss. http://www.ktisystems.com/. It is essentially a dual racor filter system preplumbed for easy secondary filter override when the primay gets clogged. It includes a remote audible alarm that sounds when the filters get clogged. Now one might say there is nothing special about this. Or one might say 'i can make one of those myself'. True, but bi have been thinking about how to build one and where to round up parts. Here they have a complete system ready to go. Simply bolt on and plumb! The only thing I might do is get the system less the racor filters as we can get them at wholesale pricing. The blackbox at the center of the system is the key. It can also be plumbed for fuel polishing.
