Raw water strainer maintenance

Postby jnick » October 4th, 2014, 12:03 am

My boat is used in salt water full time. How often is it recommended to check/clean raw water strainer?

And more importantly what tool are you using to open it? Some type of spanner wrench but I am having trouble finding one. Any suggestions?

It really depends on where you boat, if there is a lot of grass in the water for example. Check it every week or two until you get an idea of how often you need to clean them.

This might be the wrench you're looking for:
