Jetski Maintenance Guide

Salt-Away is excellent for removing salt from your jetski, engine and trailer, wet suits, helmets and fishing gear. It is also excellent for general clean-up and exterior salt removal from your towing vehicle. Cleaning is extremely quick and easy using the Salt-Away Auto-mix unit which attaches to the flush port on your engine for engine flushing, and to a garden spray nozzle for exterior cleaning.

Recommended product for first time user: Starter Kit

Engine Flush

Salt-Away does 3 major jobs when used as an engine flush. It flushes out the fresh salt, it protects the inside from rusting and corroding and it begins to break down salt build-up.

How to flush engine with the Auto-Mix unit.

Half fill cup of auto-mixing unit with Salt-Away.
Connect garden hose to Auto-mix unit. Connect other end onto flush port on engine.
Turn on water then turn auto-mixing unit to rinse position and allow motor to run for up to five minutes. This allows for the thermostat to open fully so that you can get the full flow of fresh water through the motor.
Before you turn your jetski off, turn the Auto-Mix setting to Salt-Away. You will notice the exhaust will start to foam, allow a further 30 seconds, then turn the auto-mix unit to off, give a quick blast of throttle then turn engine off. This allows the Salt-Away dilution to stay in the water jackets and continue working on breaking down and removing any salt while providing continued protection.
