    Flushing the Fizzle intercooler.

    What are you guys doing as far as flushing the Fizzle intercooler? I ride in salt water, so I don't want issues... Are you us using the stock flush connection? Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Not sure here. Does it have a dedicated water line? If it does you could back flush it by running water into the discharge fitting.

    Yes. Just be careful not to apply a lot of pressure and damage the core.

    Also if you're in an area where freezing occurs you can winterize the cooler.

    If you put a tee on incoming line it will just come out of pump area....best thing to do would be buy a stock flush adaptor and a tee....then buy a 20 dolla 1/2 check valve from rv store then when you flush it will go through intercooler and not out pump strainer

    Incorrect, it will come out both sides, running my ski in salt for over a Year. You ever want to test the theory get a t and put water pressure to it, I will bet it shoots out both sides

    now You can flush the complete line from pump to out of Cooler. Under 10 bucks. If You want to increase pressure a simple clamp plier on pump side

    You dumb fuck water goes to the least resistance meaning when you put a tee on in coming line in rear of boat water will go out pump strainer because it's easier, no resistance going 4 ft up and through a core is positive resistance. NOW if you put tee up close to intercooler then it may work, I don't know about you but I'd rather be hooking up water at rear of ski rather by intake where all the electrical connections are. Like I've been saying schrabber I know of people with older equipment that will blow away your SVHO....best thing you could do is read up on forums and worry about your own ski and getting to 90
