Simple ARB Snorkel Question

hello,

today i looked a bit at my ARB snorkel that i´ll try to install in the next weeks.
now i have a question.
what happens with the water that comes in he snorkel when i drive while it rains?
i couldn´t find a hose or something through thaat the water can run off. yes, i know, such a hose wouldn´t make sense because some water could come into the snorkel through the hose.
but if i drive on teh highway while it rains very much the snorkel could be filled with water very quick. that´s what i think.

I'm not exactly sure so this is my guess...

The snorkel will keep out the water in deep water. When it rains, even a lot, not much water will get in. Correct me if I'm wrong but the snorkel is at an angle so the top is farther out than the bottom correct?

Kinda like this? This will work as an umbrella, for lack of a better word, and keep rain water out. The water that gets in as a result of driving into it will be minimal and not cause any trouble.

Just what I think, I don't know for sure, but I've thought about the same thing. Thats how my bike was. A little watter didn't affect it, just complete submersion.

It looks like the bottom will collect small amounts of water. I wouldn't modify the kit.

a small amount will not be a problem. but what wil happen if there comes much more water?

do i have to loosen the air hose from the snorkel to let the water out time by time?

what do other people with the ARB snorkel do. have there been some "rain water" problems?

i remember reading some where that with the angle its at water wont come in sitting still, and at driving speed there are slits at the bottem of the mouth piece that the wind forces the water into... its been awhile , but i recall somthing along the lines of that...

I would think any water that gets sucked in would be minor and if it didn't pool at the bottom would be stopped at the air filter.

thats the only thing i'm confused with.. hard rain while driving on fast road like a highway. All the water is going straight in the intake and eventually will pool up and flood the engine woudnt it?

Talking From ARB's site


One of the common questions about the Snorkel is "won't rainwater go inside the Snorkel while driving?". We can assure you that this isn't an issue.

Even in a torrential downpour, only a small amount of the impact moisture will enter the front of the snorkel. Most rain droplets are broken up as they impact on the special grill cross ribs.

The high speed of the air stream, as it turns the 90 degree corner in order to enter the Safari snorkel, causes the heavier rain droplets to move to the outside surfaces. Here the rain is collected in the expanded lower body of the Safari air ram (outside the Safari snorkel body) and allowed to drain out, via the drain slots.

Hope thats helps!

i went through the whole "make my own snorkel phase" I too decided that if im going to cut a hole in my jeep it will be for a professional ARB one, not a semi-trashy pvc git-r-done jobby. I dont go through deep enough water anyways.

well did you see the driver.... that is one of the most jerry-rigged snorkles I've ever seen.

that does look quite ugly.. especially unpainted lol on wranglers you dont need 30 bends though so one pipe can carry it all the way to the top I'm lookin at aluminum piping instead of pvc..

I dont go through deep water either.. i just like how they look and bring forced cold air into the intake

Cheesey!

So... Let me get this right. You're going to buy a snorkel head but not connect it to your intake??? I must be reading the post wrong!

A little tip here. When you install your snorkel, mount that L-shaped windshield bracket backwards. That way you won't have to fight it to remove your doors and windows.
