    Default Sand Trap

    well being My motor doesnt have and silt or sand in it yet I have been looking at some of the sand traps and holy chit I cant understand the pricing on them...like around $600 smakers from Hardin Marine ...why couldnt you use one of these after your water pressure relief valve???? there rated at 125 psi which they wont be even close to that kind of pressre after the relief valve

    IMO, those are a little over-kill...Rex sells sea strainers, as do alot of other companys!...check out the sites...prices are alot better also ...also...you should be "much more aware " of getting sand in your pump then your motor!!!!...just sayin' my .02 cents

    I cant remember if it was on here....or back in the hot boat days ,I started a thread called something like sea strainer on a jet boat. If I remember right....someone told me that if the sea strain could get plugged...and explode from the pres. of the jet.. Or at least something along those lines. I am curious to see what the general consensus will be here.
    Edit: Just found my old thread. Was called " sea strainer in a jet?? or? Looks like there were several threads when I searche for sea strainer on a jet.

    put a rubber freeze plug on each side of the block, at the end of the year pull the drain plugs and the rubber plugs and you can just flush it out.

    Default sand

    my 2 cents: I put in ball valves, one on each side of block and one on each side of the log exhaust have never had sand build up in block, (drain after each use.)

    Hey Lonnie, for what it's worth I got sand in my pressure relief one time at Mardon. Stuck the pressure relief open. I think a strainer is a great idea and hit up Matt. If I recall, he's running one. Good luck
