    Default No water

    I tried to run the boat on the hose today and i wasnt getting anything out the dump line, was flowing out the pump fine.....

    I didnt turn the hose up all the way, should i try more pressure? Im running a presure reliefe valve, but i wouldnt think it would stop the flow and if it did, it would dump it out the side....

    Should i try again with more pressure...

    the river is 2 min from my pad, but dont want to load up for this little run

    Steve-Crank the pressure all the way up. I just ran mine last night. Had to do the same. Run the motor first...obviously, then crank the hose up all the way. Is this concern on the Caribbean?

    You crank that hose too high and you can force water past your head gaskets. Be careful. Had to rebuild a jet ski motor cause the hose had too much pressure.

    If i'm not mistaken, an average hose pressure only flows 10psi plus. I put a pressure guage to my motor and ran water to it and only read 10psi water flow. I was trying to get near ballpark when pre-setting my pressure regulator on the trailer. Might have been a weak water pressure though.

    Your mistaken. Most house water pressure regulators are well above 10 psi. Mine is set at 65. I have 120 coming up the main. Gotta love Norco water pressure!!!!!

    We're way over 10. I haven't had water pressure like this in a long time. The hose will do the "Cobra Snake" dance at full tilt.
