Idiots guide to steering nozzles...
« on: January 24, 2017, 03:29:09 PM »

Spot of advice chaps, please..


I know naff all about steering nozzles, so I have a question for you expert types: am I correct in thinking that when using a tapered steering nozzle the narrow end is the water exit?

Yes I agree ,BUT note that the nozzle is almost parallel internally, if it is too tapered you will get a water jet effect and possibly overload the motor, trying to compress the water flow outwards.
