The plans show this water inlet pipe made from Sched 80 mild steel, but Iím making it from Sched 80 316L stainless for anti corrosion reasons.† Here I have cut, welded and tidied up the 45 degree angled pipe and cut the 2 holes where it and the high pressure air inlet will fit.† I was careful with the pipe thread position to make sure that when the valve is screwed on, it will tighten at the top so It lines up properly with the through hull it will join to.††

There are no measurements as to the exact location of the HP inlet pipe, only how far it sticks out, so Iíve just had a guess to where it looks about right according to the drawings.
