The jet ski intake grate is a small piece of plastic that goes on the bottom of your jet ski to protect against rocks and debris in the water. Recently, jet skis have been coming with a foam filter or a screen that can be attached to the jet ski intake grate. If you are considering adding this type of protection to your jet ski, there are 3 things you need to know before making a decision:
1) You will need an additional attachment for your jet engine so it can suck water through the foam/screen instead of sucking air from above it.
2) The cost varies depending on what material is used and how big your jet engine is.
3) There will be some noise difference if you use a jet ski intake grate that has a foam or screen.
In conclusion, jet skis with jet ski intake grates provide more excellent protection for your jet engine than jet skis without a jet ski intake grate.
