    Water shut-off 'Tow Valve' for Sea Doo 2001 GTX (951 carb)

    The 2001 GTX(951 carb) I just bought will be towed behind my pontoon boat quite often. I would like to install a shut off valve for the water intake.

    Can someone please help me identify which hose I need to install the valve in, what size valve/fittings I would need?

    Also, is this the same line I would install a Tee in to be able to run off the garden hose?

    Looks very, very similar to the 'irrigation' valves I use. Same valves are also sold for aquariums and such.


    Valves are made by Antelco

    Here is a recent shut-off valve install.
    Note the warning text right next to the valve.

    Figure out a reliable method of reminding yourself (and others who may ride the watercraft) to check the shut-off valve position before riding.

    Perhaps installing a visible water pisser outlet from the cooling system would confirm that water is indeed flowing when the engine is running.

    A more 'automatic' method would be to install an electric water valve that opens and allows water flow only when the engine is running and then closes when the engine is shut off. Of course the electric valve and the wiring need to be reliable and well installed.

    I think I am going to go with hanging the lanyard off the valve when closed I have read about. Now, I looked up my ski on microfish, is the hose I want to valve the one that go's to the bottom of exhaust manifold? Again, is this the same line to instal a flush T on?
