Hey everyone. Need some comforting per say haha. I was flushing the Spark after use, engine running turned on water. Waited for water to flow from pump and nothing. Confused i waited a little more and noticed smoke coming from exhaust system due to heat and rushed to shut it off. What i found was for whatever reason the water pressure was barely even worthy of forcing it through the system. Im probably being overly concerned, but is there any chance something could of got damaged?

If you used the quick connect adapter then you probably had the water on before you attached it to the ski. My suggestion is to connect the quick connect then cut the water on and see if that changes things. If you weren't using the quick connect idk what to say.

Also I have noticed that the adapter clicks twice once you connect it. That may be just mine though.

Oh haha sorry dude. I connected to the flush kit with quick connect. First time i used it with the quick connect. I'm guessing the pressure wasn't enough to push it through the exhaust which in turn it got hot and started to smoke some from the heat. It ran no more than a minute like that but still scary. When i disconnected the water came back out the flush hose and was hot.

Thanks Xtreme. I really do believe it relates to that quick connect. It was my first time using it and probably didnt do something right. Im just worried about any damage. Probably just being overly worried

Test the water coming thru the hose first before it is connected. You Do Not want a Full Blast of water from the hose- Just a medium (Moderate flow) of water into the flush fitting.

get the front end of the trailer in the air pull the drain plug out and start it and run it on the flush you should check for water coming out of the hull and exhaust fumes in the hull at the side access, if you notice anything then you could have a leak, the only way to know for sure is to pull the top deck off.

Did you notice smoke or steam? steam won't really have any smell but smoke will smell like burning plastic or rubber and that is the start of damage occurring.

Hey Wrench,

Thank you for the info. I've put about another 5 hours on it and flushed it several times since this occured so it appears that everything is good to go. At the time i did notice what i think was steam, (but possibly smoke) i cant quite remember if it had a smell. I think when i flushed it that day there was a kink somewhere in the hose that i did not notice, which did not give enough pressure to push through the ski. Its been flushing fine since then.
