Regardless of whether you install one of these screens or not, I strongly recommend you install a raw water flow detector. Should intake water be blocked for any reason the Raw Water Flow Detector sets off an alram instantly. By the time you notice the white smoke, rising temperature gauge or your overheat alarm goes off, much damage has already been done. Aqualarm makes a good one.
