Didn't last a season

By Wake Up

Pros

  • Inneffective Parts

  • Poor Design

Best Uses

  • Engine

Installed in June of 2013,used the boat for one season, flushed, basic winter maintenance, stored the boat in a heated garage. Did minor repairs over the coarse of the winter and when I hooked up the hose to flash her up, under medium pressure it blew apart in the first 30 seconds. No lake for me this weekend. :-(

Design has been improved.

    I have these installed on a boat I recently purchased with twin inboard Crusader 350's. Both have failed since purchase of the boat. When the engine is shutoff and the pressurized hose is still attached, the back pressure will eventually separate the two plastic cups that contain the check valve. I have replaced one so far. The new one has a clamp holding the two plastic pieces together which should the durability substantially. Interestingly, the instructions say for an in-water boat, seacock must still be closed to prevent raw water intrusion (e.g. the check value won't seal completely), which in my mind kind of defeats the purpose of the product.

    Comments about Perko Flush-pro System 5/8" Hose:

    I have twin 502 engines. I have had to replace each Perko installed twice on one engine and just recently a third one on the other engine. This all within the last 12 months. Failed (breaks) where the two parts join together and are held by the two screws through the plastic hinges. Very poor design! Lost several weeks of boating because of them.

    Typical breakage at seam

      Comments about Perko Flush-pro System 5/8" Hose:

      I like the concept however the quality is horrible. I will buy a new one and seal the two halves with gorilla glue since the two jewelry size screws that hold the whole together suck. Perko should have sealed the halves together during manufacturing.

      Leaks after a few years but works

          Comments about Perko Flush-pro System 5/8" Hose:

          Used for twin 8.1L Mercruisers. Worked great for few years but cracked and started leaking into bilge. Leak got so bad I noticed excessive bilge action and lifted hatch. I rigged hoses from the flush-pro into my fender locker so I wouldn't have to lift the engine hatch after each outing to flush. Poor design and quality. Why hasn't Perko improved this or pulled it? As bad as it is I will buy another pair cause manifolds are $3.000+ to replace.

          Danger, DO NOT BUY

                Comments about Perko Flush-pro System 5/8" Hose:

                I bought and istalled two of these engine flush valves with no problem in a twin engine boat. After several uses one of them split in two at the joint where the two halves of the plastic body come together. There is a press fit between two pieces of plastic with no threads or other means of holding this unit together. This failure allowed the intake water to pour into the boat, and had I not been in the boat using it at the time it could have very well sank the boat at a mooring or dock. Very dissapointed that Perko would put out a product so poor in design.

                I did buy another because it makes maintainance much easier.
                Plastic construction started leaking after 5 years and almost sunk my boat.
