    Clogged Bailer Lines?

    Hey there guys. Just wondering if you've ever come across a clogged bailer system? I have the GTI 155 Limited 2011.

    It seems every time I get back to the garage from the water and after flushing the system, there is always a (the same one) bailer line that has some water it in down close to the bottom of the hull. The water color is a darker color and it leads me to believe it has been there a while, maybe suggesting it's been clogged a while.

    There does not appear to be any large amount of water in hull after a run, though.

    Thoughts on cleaning out these bailer lines? Recommendations?

    Thanks

    Th eonly way the bailer line is going to be clogged is if something was in your hull and got sucked in the bailer pump.

    Thanks for the reply. I can not recall the bailer system picking up anything other then water in the bottom of the hull, but it is possible. In that case, how do you recommend verifying the system is clear of any clogs?

    Ie blow some canned air through the drain plug outside the stern in? Cut the zip tie at the 90 connector and blow air out through the drain plug?

    Anyway to really test that both bailer lines are working correctly without being on the water?

    Thanks.
