I am new to the forum and was reading a post about turning the water on after the motor is running and turning it off after shutting the engine off. What issues could arise if it was done wrong?
Hello Dave,Bobby11, welcome aboard.
. Start motor, turn on water, let flush for "5 to 6 minutes"
Dave,Getwet2018, you are correct. I jumped the gun here. And should have inquired as to ski make first.
All this is figuring on flushing while still wet. All pump seals are cooled and or lubricated by water when riding. If they've been out of the water long you should hose the pump out first to wet seals.
The Yamaha no issue with 4/6 minutes. It uses rubber seals lubed by grease from inside and cooled by water external.
The seadoo you should shorten flush time to about 1/3 minutes tops. As it does have a carbon seal that can be overheated. This seal is both cooled and lubed by water. Flush time would depend apon wether your riding fresh or salt water. Less if fresh water, longer for salt.
If riding salt water be sure to flush with "salt away" or "salt Terminator" to nutrulize salt on all ski's and boats.
What does the Seadoo owners manual say for time on flushing?
