    visibility spout redirect

    I have read a ton on doing a valve to shut off and then turn on the spout but the post that appealed to me the most was to just bend over the hose and zip tie thus redirecting the spray.. My daughter got sprayed on the tube like crazy.. Any feedback on the zip tie mod??

    Disconnect it from the spout,fold over and cinch down a tyrap. No more spray'her.

    Use a longer line, if she is getting hit by the gay spray, she is a bit too close

    Zip tie works just fine, more then I do. I just pull it off the fitting and tuck the line in the pump....got a fleet of skis done that way

    Kwtony when you fold it under back to the pump do you just fasten it to itself so it doesnt push out or am I missing what you are saying?

    It restricts the flow at the fitting making it spray, if you unhook it and tuck it will just flow out into the water... it's not going to flail around like a fire hose, don't over think it.

    Mine is just disconnected on the deck end and sort of hangs out the back a little. Works ok so far.

    I'm sure there's a thousand ways to go about it, but here's mine... I cut the hose, put this in-line and zip tied each side on. Been 10 hours and I can turn it off and on by reaching under the back deck. Took 5 minutes.

    KISS... Disconnect the hose from the spout. Insert something that will block the flow of water (that will not corrode) that has a tight fit and reconnect the hose to the spout. I used a 1/2 inch hose barb filled with JB Weld. I dont see any reason for valves and added BS over complicating something that is simple.

    Installing a valve is not very complicated.....
