Good day Forum members we are new owners of a 2009 3900 Tiara Sovran with Pod Volvo Diesel IPS 500 engines. My question to the forum is the sea strainers on the engines , they have a bit of crud in them and I would like to clean them out , since they are above the water line and look to be provided with water from the pods pump is it ok to clean the filter without closing the valve . Also marine technician told me ( supplement from a margin tech with owners manual things to do ) when I reseal the cap to put some Palmolive dish soap around the seal ? Just a dab , has anyone heard of this ?
