This water strainer is a GIANT compared to many of the mainstream filters used by the jetski aftermarket. More than 7 inches tall, featuring a stainless steel mesh filtering screen, this filter is built to handle more pressure without reducing water flow. A water strainer is a must-have item for any high performance intercooler. It will keep damaging debris, both large and small, from clogging the water passages. Clogged water passages will otherwise lead to premature failure of the intercooler.
