    Should be covered in the owners manual... you can down load it directly from Sea-Doo from the below link:

    there is a flush kit that is placed in the middle of the exit line for the head. you could probly make one cheaper than buying one. all it takes is a half inch T-hose fitting( after you cut the hose insert the T), a few hose clamps, 6in hose, and a female garden hose end. instant flush kit...

    On your ski you have to pinch off the water out hose, between the flush tee connection and the rear of the ski. Buy the pinch off tool from SD, it's actually cheap, and the green adapter hose to connect to the tee. It's also better to buy a water on-off valve to put at the end of the hose before screwing on the green adapter fitting. Then you don't have to run back and forth between the faucet. Make the connections, start the ski, then turn on the water. Turn off the water before killing the engine, and rev up 3-4 times to blow out the waterbox.

    For extended runs, I would dribble a small stream of water on the carbon ring. Water is what lubricates this seal and it will overheat quickly running on the hose. If you're slick you can loosen the green hose slightly and dribble directly from there.

    Pay him for what? To come to your house and turn on the hose?

    Buy the hose adapter(green) and a hose clamp(or use small vise-grips).
    -clamp water line behind hose connection
    -start engine
    -attach hose w/adapter installed
    -remove hose
    -stop engine
    -remove clamp and replace red cover on water line connection
