I understand the reason for the drain hole at the bottom of the tuba. My question is why did they put the rubber duckbill over the hole. What's wrong with just a hole? It's before the filter and much smaller than the opening of the tuba. I have never had a problem with rain getting in the tuba opening but took the duckbill off just in case.

The duckbill, or rubber scupper drain, will keep out rats, mice, chipmunks and the like...

The rubber duckbill is a one way valve. Water comes out quite easily when directed toward the valve however when there's a lot of water get ready to open your air box, retrieve your filter and air dry it because you are going to get an SES light on your IP quicker than you can say supercalafragalisticexpialidocious. In the morning once your filter has air dried, (use a fan) the SES light will go out.

Pity I threw away the tuba. Had I kept it when I did CAI, could have taken it to Branson next year. If we all did we could work up a horn band!!
