    how does the bilge system work on the 2002 gtx models

    I have a 2002 gtx dl and it is taking on water and I am still trying to sort that out but in the mean time I wonder why my bilge is not ridding itself of water as designed

    It's a bailer system... The 2 square bailer inlets could be clogged, the bailer orings between the pump and shoe, or the the bailer orings between the pump and the nozzle could be missing or damaged...
    Best to determine where your water is coming in... good way to start that diagnosis is to run it on the trailer in the water with the seat off and use a flashlight to look for water coming in...

    doe the bailers work at low rpm or low speed do you have to be moving forward or have the rpm's up to get bailers to work oh and I found the leak it was the steering cable where it comes thru housing

    You have to be running half throttle or above to get them to work.

    It's created in the nozzle in the back of the ski, it may work just from revving the engine on the trailer, but i wouldn't count on it. I always feel like i have to get up to speed on the lake before they begin to work. It's a fine line there between throttle and speed where they begin to pull water out of the ski. If you are this terribly concerned about the problem do a search on here and look into adding a bilge pump. Look specifically at the Whale 650 bilge installs, they work the best in my opinion.
