Hello how are you

chrishere0 :

Your ski has what is called a wear ring around the outside of the impeller, over time or when debris are sucked through the impeller/wear ring it becomes damaged, when this happens the gap between the impeller and the ring becomes greater, this reduces the ability of the pump to move water efficiently.

chrishere0 :

Its alot like a clutch slipping in a car or motorcycle. At this point you will need to replace the wear ring and inspect the impeller for damage.

chrishere0 :

The wear ring is part #8 in the link below
