    Using Salt Away

    Guys should I wait for my engine to be completely cold to wash it with salt away or I can do it right out of the ramp? Thanks.

    Are you talking about flushing with salt away? or washing the outside of the engine?

    Run it on the hose for 2 minutes. Connect the mixer with the salt away in. Start it up and run it for another 30 seconds to a minute. Turn it off. Spray everything you want protected with it and be on your merry way. I do it when the engine is hot. Doesn't make a difference unless you have high gloss and need time to wipe it down so you don't get water spots.

    DO NOT RUN IT ON THE HOSE FOR TOO LONG. It will cook the carbon seal!!!

    wotxxxsd are you talking about the hose I use to flush the seadoo o a hose of the seadoo itself?

    I was told to use fresh water for about 4 minutes and salt away for one minute at the end so that the salt away is the last thing in the engine. Is this ok? It is safe or you guys recommend something else?

    Do not run your ski on the hose for 4 min.
    1-2 min max. And dont rev the ski up while its on the hose. You don't want to cook the carbon seal. The carbon seal is on the drive shaft and has no cooling while the ski is out of the water.

    The updated service manual states 90seconds of flush time.

    So would 60 seconds of hose. And 30-45 with the salt away be fine?

    Yep, 1-2 mins on the sea doos. I know yamaha says 3-4 on their 4 stroke machines, was a bit surprised to read that sea doo suggests 1-2 after my buddy bought his.
