Customer Question

I have a 1999 - 60 hp Mercury. I recently noticed that the water put
out by the engine has become just a dribble. Can I use compressed air
introduced up the discharge tube without damaging anything inside the
engine? The discharge stream for the past several years has been very
impressive.

Hi Leroy, my name is Jason.

Yes you can use compressed air to clean out the water discharge tube.

Did you have any other questions on the issue?
