    lake weeds

    Can lake weeds wreck the pump or wear ring. My lake is weedy in spots and sometimes if i coast thru the weeds i have to jumper over board to pull them out of the intake grate. Could this cause any damage to the pump, impellar or wear ring? Thanks

    Only if you are stuck in those weeds (no water input to the turbine) and keep throttling, in that event, yes it can ruin the wear ring, as soon as it cavitates (turbine spinning without sufficient water input), you better stop the engine to release the weeds.
