    idea for t-fitting to check jetworks flow

    Just a quick thought while i'm being an insomniac...

    With the concern about a jetworks valve getting clogged with dirt or sand and not properly injecting water into the waterbox area... would it be possible to add a t-fitting after the valve and before the injection point and hook this t-fitting up to an additional pisser on the exterior of the ski?

    That way, it would be easy to check if the valve is clogged by simply looking to see if the pisser is ejecting water at WOT.

    Then again, the t-fitting may drop the pressure enough to not allow enough water in the box to begin with.

    Part number

    Was too tired to actually find one, but something like P/N 44555K189 from the McMaster catalog: brass 3/8" main line fitting x .170" tee fitting. Find a small thru-hull fitting and you'd be all set.

    I ran my gp1200 and raider like that. Just a standerd 3/8 barbed tee. It actually helps to bleed some of the pressure when you run a dedicated line for the JW valve.

    TTT

    Has anyone else tried this (besides addicted)? I'm thinking of giving it a try when I install my Jetworks stuff in a couple of weekends.

    Here's a picture of what i'm talking about. I'm just afraid that the tee fitting will take too much pressure away from the injection water and cause overheating.

    And the valve shouldnt clog with debris, just maybe not seat properly (close)

    I have been installing jetworks kits for 2 years and have never found substantial debris in the valve.

    Maybe have a valve at the t-fitting on the pisser side. Open for verification, closed for running. If the pissers pissin', it means the valve needs to be closed for normal ops.

    This was the thread that was the inspiration for all of this... but thanks for chiming in, WFO! I figured that one of the tuners on here would have some good input.

    Not exactly what you're talking about, but here's what I did to change flow on my Jetworks. It helps reduce noise and slow the ski a little in no-wake zones by routing water directly to the water box. Then, I switch back to the Jetworks.
