Some time back we sucked up a large gob of kelp on the outside screen and I had to dive in 55 degree water without a wet suit to clear it. It would have been a whole lot easier and warmer to undo a hose long enough to hold above the water line and push the kelp out with a rod or smaller diameter hose.
