Default Hydrasport, aerator, live well diagrams/information

I have a 1991 Hydrasport 1850 model and I don't know much about aerators or live well systems. Example valves, pumps, drains. Anybody got anything that would help me understand how they work.
Thanks

Max,
In the bilge of your boat, you'll see a thruhull in the hull bottom, that is your livewell pickup. Attached to the pickup will be a shutoff valve with a yellow handle. Now, there maybe a pump located on top of that shutoff valve, there may be a hose running to a pump. Yhat is your livewell pump. From the pump, a hose will run to your aerator head.

Valve open, turn on the pump at your helm, livewell fills. Turn off the pump. On a boat as small as yours, there will probably what's called a "stand pipe" which inserts in the drain and has an open top with a strainer on it. That way, if you leave the pump on, once the water level reaches that strainer, it will start to drain the livewell. Want to drain the livewell now? Simply pull the standpipe out.

It's as simple as that...

Thanks, I found the value and the pump but the wires are so deteriated and broken off I will have to to rewire it. Can't find a stand pipe and I looked in all the boxes?
Thanks again

If the drain in the livewell is 1 1/2" you can get the stand pipe from your closest dealer.

The HS part number for the 8" stand pipe is:
HS22090577

and the part number for the 16" stand pipe is:
HS22090585

You can shorten the 16" pipe if you need to.

Thanks, just reviewing info. I am still trying to figure where the stand pipe is. I understand how stands pipes work, but can't figure where it is and how would I get to it. Any other information would be helpful. What about the airerator system?
Thanks again
