Flush pro or Indmar sea strainer pro flush?

Any opinions on which is better?

I installed the Indmar strainer this summer and am very pleased with it. Picks up a lot of debri and is very easy to clean.When I winterized last weekend I shut the thru hull valve off , installed a short hose to the fitting and drew in 10 litres antifreeze . Very simple , neat and clean.

x2 for the Indmar. Considered both. For roughly the same cost and space in your engine bay you get both a strainer and flush. That made my decision for the Indmar and have been happy with it.

That's exactly what I do.

I also put the hose in the strainer facing the inlet hose and turn on the water to run the boat on the trailer versus fake a lake.

If you go with the flush pro make sure you get the latest one with the stainless steal hose clamp joining he two halves. The earlier models were joined in the middle with plastic tabs and screws and I had two of these break.

Anyone have any issues with the indmar strainer pro? Been on your boats for a few years now. Any updated review or feelings on? I have a flushpro currently. While it works, every time I go to connect the water hose to it, I realize i left the little black coupler piece that presses the ball down at home. 3x was enough to make me want to switch.

I have the Indmar. Had to replace it earlier this year because the fitting for my garden hose cracked. Other than that it works fine and if great for winterizing
