The New "It's Cool™" Drive Showers from Rex Marine

The new "It's Cool™" Drive Showers for Bravo 1 & Bravo 3 drives from Rex Marine not only look Cool, they "actually do cool" your drive unit better than any other covered shrouded type drive shower.

Most all Drive Showers can spray water on the top cap of your drive. That's the easy part. But if they don't cool the sides of your drive you're only getting about half the potential cooling benefit of having a drive shower. About 50% of the heat is actually pulled off the sides of the drive, not the top cap.

The Rex Marine It's Cool™ Drive Showers are specifically designed to lay a sheet of water down the sides of the drive, even at low pressure sometimes encountered with high trim angles. Most other models rely on splash and the majority of water blows off the top cap out into the lake without ever contacting the sides of the drive.

It's Cool™ Single Pickup Drive Shower @ 10 lbs. of pressure
Notice it still has a solid sheet of water down the side of the drive even at this very low pressure delivery. In testing we never saw under about 14 pounds on any of our test boats even at maximum up trim angle.
It's Cool™ Dual Pickup Drive
Shower @ 10 lbs.
of pressure
The dual pickup delivers twice the flow of water down the side of the drive even at this very low pressure delivery. We recommend the Dual model for extreme applications running high trim angles for extended periods.
It's Cool™ Single Pickup Drive Shower @ 20 lbs. of pressure.
This is the typical pressure most boats see at fast cruise at mid-high trim angles. Flow is very strong fully covering both sides of the drive.
It's Cool™ Dual Pickup Drive Shower @ 20 lbs. of pressure.
This is the typical pressure most boats see at fast cruise at mid-high trim angles. Flow is pretty self explanatory here with dual pickups.
It's Cool™ Single Pickup Drive Shower @ 30 lbs. of pressure.
This is the typical pressure most boats see at average cruise with medium trim. Flow is more than adequate for any length excursion you care to tackle. We did see pressure reading over 30 lbs on some boats but didn't feel the need post photos at that pressure.
It's Cool™ Dual Pickup Drive Shower @ 30 lbs. of pressure.
This is the typical pressure most boats see at average cruise with medium trim. The flow with the dual pickups is just massive, again twice as much water as with the single pickup model. We recommend the dual model for extreme performance applications that may see high trim angles for extended periods.

Remember, if your present shower isn't covering the sides of the
drive with water as the above pictures of the It's Cool™ Drive Shower,
you're not getting maximum cooling of your drive unit.
________________________________________________________

In the two photos above 10 pounds of pressure was supplied to a standard bathroom showerhead to illustrate the similarity of this delivery design to actual drive showers on the market that deliver water in a similar method. Notice in Photo #1 while the top cap has plenty of cooling water, almost none is flowing down the side of the drive where about 50% of the cooling potential is lost. Drive shower designs that simply dump water on top of the cap without directing the water specifically down the sides have similar results as photo #1. By contrast, photo #3 (left) of the Rex Marine It's Cool™ Drive Shower at the same 10 pound pressure supply, water almost thoroughly covers the top cap and the sides of the drive.

The above photos illustrate water delivery at 10 pounds of pressure from
a typical top dump type drive shower and on the bottom, the Rex Marine
It's Cool™ Drive Shower. The flow down the sides of the It's Cool™ Drive
Shower is critical for maximum cooling of the drive unit. Also the small holes
typical of some drive showers in the top photos are prone to clog with weeds,
debris, and barnacles with no effective way to clean them. Once clogged with
foreign material they are effectively a drive ornament. The outlet holes in the
It's Cool™ spray bars are 5/16" diameter which are not likely to plug and are
easily cleaned if they do get a large piece of debris.
