    Removing Antifreeze

    Hi, had ski winterized by dealer wanted to summerize myself. I know antifreeze was used to winterize, what is easiest environmentally friendly way to remove antifreeze. I have looked over the preseason prep in manual doesn't say how to remove. Is there anything else I should know about summerizing ty.

    umm if u drain all the coolant out of the ski then u have no cooling, there is nothing u have to do to summerize the ski besides maybe putting in some new spark plugs, the antifreeze they put into the ski is in the Intercooler and exhaust manifold, just hook up the hose to the flush port and run the ski then turn the water on for a little, just like u would a normal flush.

    yea not a good idea to remove the coolant unless ur pulling the plate or Tstat or going open loop!

    First let me start by saying I do not own a SeaDoo. However it seems to me that his question is NOT about removing the coolent fluid that is nessesary for the operation of his ski, but rather the anti freez that is run through his machine to prevent residual water from freezing during the winter months. Personally I just start her up and let her rip blowing the antifreez all over the driveway. However I do use an ecologically friendly RV type anti freeze during winterization.

    flush it as per normal post ride flush, on your lawn, it might kill the grass but if you flush for long enough it will be fine

    I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one that loves cats this much... god bless you ultra... playing with cats is about as productive as playing marco polo with Helen Keller.
