Re: Trouble with raw water strainer
We keep a couple of Turkey
Basters aboard for the purpose of suctioning up and draining small/moderate amounts of water such as the bowl in the raw water strainer.
Suction out the dirty sea water, partially refill with clear water and a little cleaning
solution/dish soap and use a bottle washing
brush to clean, suction out and discard the solution, refill with clear water mixed with SaltAway and seal the thing up and you're good to go. The drain plug never needs be opened.
