    Can you pressure wash the inside of a jet ski?

    I let a friend borrow my jet ski and he forgot to tighten the drain valve and got water all inside my motor area. can I pressure wash it?

    I think a pressure washer might be overkill for that normal garden hose pressure should be good, theres a chance of getting water in the intake or damaging a wire or two. the best things for cleaning are salt away they sell it at most places for boat supplies and if you have a nasty bilge with mold, grease, and oil all over theres a degreaser called super clean you can get at walmart and that works good with a little scrubbing.

    x2 on the garden hose. Very easy to get water in the electrical connectors, etc. and cause problems down the road.

    Rend Corporation used to make soap packets that you just threw in the hull. When water got in the hull, it would just wash itself as you rode over rough water. Guess you could do that with one of those dishwasher soap packets.

    I usually squirt some degreaser under the motor and take a garden hose and bend the hose so very little pressure comes out and hose it out with the ski jacked up on the front. Open the drains on the back and let the water flow out. Leave the seat pulled back a little and throw a couple of cut apples in there and it will get rid of the moisture and make it smell decent. )

    The motor compartment was very clean before all this. It has lake scum in there now thats why I thought the pressure washer would help get rid of that crap.

    Id let some bilge cleaner soak in the for awhile personally i wouldnt touch the inside with any power washer because of all the electrical, down the road with time may cause corrosion just find a brush and do it the old fashion way

    I'll wash mine down with waterhose after saltwater use and use spray degreaser with soft brush if need to clean more thoroughly.
