    Low water pressure, impeller ?

 I usually have 18-20 psi at WOT, the last couple of trips it has dropped down to 11psi... I have not changed my setup in anyway... I know the impeller should be changed every year on a mercury, but I have a Yamaha (250 OX66 if this matters) how often should it be changed??? I owned the boat for two years and I havent changed it... I'm ginna take it in on Monday

   was it new two years ago? from Randy B  3/25/2012 4:27:37 PM
 If you bought it from someone, you'd have to find out the last change from them. I go by the every 2-3 years metric. I want to do 2 years but when it's peeing strongly and I am pressed for time, I just wait and see.


   It was used from fishintechnician #13154 #13154  3/25/2012 9:36:13 PM
 It was five years old when I bought it. It's still peeing and no alarms went off... So is it the impeller ?


   Most likely from Jeff Hahn  3/25/2012 9:52:22 PM
 Most likely the impeller. My Opti was showing strong water pressure at WOT, but at idle sometimes the hot horn would go off. If it hasn't been changed in a couple year, get the impeller and water pump changed.

   Don't take chances change it out from rgray200 #13648 #13648  3/26/2012 6:14:48 AM
 I changed mine myself two weeks ago because low idle pressure(2#). The dealer said they put a new one in, but when I took the old one out it looked older than 1.5 seasons worth use. It pumps up 5# idle now.
