    I'm always amazed what I see in there after a ride.

    Keep them clean or you can have a bad day also.

    I like to run mine on a tee half the incoming water goes to the exhaust other half to the intercooler. And I only filter the intercooler side. Everyone has there own way but this is what I like.

Oh and no I didn't hit a sand bar or anything, the water is just dirty and many big boats we all follow when riding kick up sand and debris in the water..
    Is this the Riva Gen3 that leaked on you after less than a year of use? Or is this a new unit that you ran just one time without a strainer and found a leak? I also run in the Fort Myers and Naples area and my Gen 3 only lasted 6 months. This failure mode is something I never thought of but I would think the strainer in the pump would keep this large of debris out.
    This failure was less than a year of riding.. Like I said, I bought the strainer from GH about the same time I bought the IC and rode with the new IC once before installing the strainer and the debris got in there. The Gulf of mexico is overall dirty water and very sandy but then again, lots of fresh water has silt/algae which clogs up IC almost worse..

    I have been looking at this issue and found that my pump already has a strainer, its easy to see if you look into the pump from the back of your craft with a flashlight, the holes are really small. Its really strange pieces of shell so big got into that intercooler, and also all the big debris in the other picture, its practically imposible for things so big to enter the cooling system, unless those pumps are missing this part. As far as I know all SeaDoos come with this part.

    So if you install a second strainer you should look for a tight mesh otherwise what goes in the first strainer will also pass through the second strainer, and its hard to see in the picture but the oem strainer is small and so are those holes.

    that's a good subject jerry brought up. I 100% agree with him that it is necessary to have a strainer. I have used them in the past and had several fail on me and fill up the boat on the side where they were installed in seconds and get tossed of the boat at high speed. there was a guy on here that made a strainer out of billet. I would spent more double than what its worth if they were available. I was even thinking to make them myself but I got busy with other projects. maybe jerry could have them made. I would definitely think that they would be a great seller!!!

    On the housing it states:
    150 psi @ 75*F
    100 psi @ 125*F
    Uses 1 1/4" npt

    Speaking of pressure, here is a conversation we had about strainers and pressure over 3 years ago:

    http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=187911

    Bottom line is, there is different pressure from pumps with washer
    restrictors at 11 o'clock (more) verses the pumps with water flowing thru the iBr fitting (less)!

    Good info. Maybe I will install the strainer that has been staring me in the face in my garage.
