    Check the in line filter, if it has one.

    The word clean is soo subjective.. lol

    Take the head off and pull the trigger, does water shoot out the bottom? Then follow my flow chart..
    Check the q/c first.. Then the inline filter, then take off the jets, process of elimination..

    Nate and Porkchop are right start with the simplest. Could be the small solution supply ball valve, inline filter, could be a broken (Freeze Damaged) valve. Follow the solution system and see where the flow dead ends. Has to be a simple problem.

    its probably the pin on your quick connect unless u can see the jets are visually clogged.

    Ive had it happen with tools before, the female QD just wasnt pushing the male pin open

    Does anyone know the size flood jet for the Rotovacs?

    I'm going to replace all of them on the 360i as well as the XL.

    I think its the larger 1.5 jets just don't want to be wrong and am far too lazy to drive down to the shop right now.

    Thanks!

    I believe they are 1.5 flood jets.. Flood jets flow more than regular jets.. The 360i is a 9flow..
