    About a minute,the exhaust heats up quickly.

    Manual will say 15 seconds... 1 minute is probably OK, but longer than I would run it.

    Do yourself a favor,

    Follow what ever the manual say's because it will cost you bucks in the long run. The motor will be fine in the 15 seconds, its the carbon seal that will heat up so fast without water around it to cool it in about 10 seconds and it gets hot enough to burn your fingers if you touch it, I talking from experience here that's why I changed to the old fashion bearing coupler style seal to run mine out of water... good luck.

    Let me know which one of you guys is winterizing while running on the hose or is only fogging for 15 seconds.How long you can run it with no water also depends on the air temp,you can run one much longer in cold weather than in warm weather,just for the record I haven't smoked a carbon ring yet and I work on these every day.

    Reach down & touch the bearing carrier after running it on the hose for a couple of minutes....

    By "carbon seal" you're talking about the seal where the impeller shaft exits the hull, correct?

    I think the carbon ring is good for 5 minutes before it's temps become a concern.

    When run on the hose, the carbon seal does not get any water cooling benefit and it will heat up, but not in 15 seconds.

    I always take a pitcher if I am going to run for more than a minute or two on the hose and dump cold water on the carbon ring to cool it off. I usually only need to this while winterizing, or if I am trying to figure what the heck I did wrong while putting somthing back together
