    XPL problems

    On an XPL with the Coffman pipe is there a way to keep sand
    out of the jets? I have tried filters infront of the jets but they clog
    even faster. FP used to have some sort of self cleaning filter but
    I can't find it anywhere. Tired of replacing the rear hose.

    FP's filter won't stop sand...it has 1/16" SS mesh screen inside. You need a FloJet water strainer/filter. Real fine SS screen, and if you mount it close to the pump in the rear of the ski it will backflush itself when you let off the gas. I've only had to clean mine when in the ocean and slimy freshwater weedy lake locations.

    Alot of the PWC retailers carry them. I'll try to find you a link.

    Here's a link that shows the filter (what I have) in the upper left-hand corner.

    I wouldn't use that filter... They crack and it will happen and soon your ski is taking on water like the Titanic.They might keep the sand out but i would rather clean sand then water out of my motor...

    I use the same one as RQ and have for 8 years. Never had a problem and you can get it at Boaters World or West Marine for $14.95. It's actually made by Jabsco.

    if yours cracked you probably had it to close to something. While riding it was probably vibrating on something and crack. Yes that happened to James out in the ocean, but his was hitting the waterbox.

    The first generation had clear plastic tops. These would crystallize and crack from the heat generated inside our hulls. I talked to an engineer @ Flo-Jet about it. He said they weren't originally designed for the heat. He sent me a smoke colored top free and I've never had a problem since. The ones PPG uses will crack and blow. Flow-Jet's are twice as thick.

    I stand corrected. I had one crack and in my ski and have never run one again..Good to know that they fixed the problem..
