    Homemade SHO adjustable visibility spout.

    My homemade on/off water spout. Cost me less than $10. The hose is ½ inner diameter that can be found at Autozone. Stainless steel clamp, pvc cement, on/off switch, elbow, and ½ pipe can be found at a hardware store.

    Very nice job , is the valve attached to the rubber flap, it kinda looks that way from your pictures. Have you tried it out yet?

    On my HO I JB welded the crap out of the nozzle to stop the tail but I don't want any warranty issues on my new SHO. God I hate that damned rooster tail, how hard would it be to put a valve on at the factory!!!

    Is that fuel line hose, does anyone know the pressures involved here?

    No, the valve isn't attached to the rubber flap. I took it out and rode for 3 hours and didn't have any issue with hose coming off. It didn't interfere with the reverse bucket either. The hose is a heater hose made by Goodyear, so it should hold high pressure.

    I forgot to ask, is this on a SHO? The reverse bucket looks different than my HO, but mine's a 05. Thanks again for sharing, I've been trying to come up with something like this for my new ski and it's given me some good ideas.

    I pulled the hose then tapped the hole in outlet nipple and put a bolt in mine (GPR). this way I can always go back if I feel the need.

    good fix but couldn't you just install this in line with just 2 hose clamps?

    Nice find craig. You can use your stock hose. I didn't want to cut up the stock hose. Later on I might want to put it back to normal.

    did that install in 5 minutes at the lake without taking the hose off.

    perfect for wakeboarding/tubing..
