    Water Bypass flow / Flushing

    When I flush after a ride, my salt away attachment and the coiled hose I use restrict the flush flow enough so that barely a trickle (and sometimes nothing) comes out of my bypass outlet. It only takes about 8 minutes to flush, but I'm worried that the engine could get too hot. Also, I'm concerned that I'm leaving some salt water in the cooling system.

    So, I'm thinking of getting some good old fashioned normal garden hose for my flushing.. What do you guys think?

    good idea. try flushing with no attachment to get majority out, then use attacment to infuse salt away. Ski should not take too much volume to flush, but bigger hose is a good idea if that coiled hose is what i think it is.

    Even typical garden hose can range in size 1/2" to 3/4"

    speaking of flushing attachments

    my brass flushing attachment worked well for a couple of months.
    Now it shoots water all over from where the female coupling meets
    the tube going into the ski.
    I tighten the feed hose well, still problem.
    I took off cowling to get at that hose and I couldn't get it off the
    barb without cutting it off.

    Any one else have this problem? A fix??

    I use the Salt Away also with the quick disconnect(regular garden hose) and it works fine! I could see why the concern with the coil hose.

    Do you use the quick disconnect on the rear by the pump on that white attachment or the front hose attachment? BTW what is that white attachment; looks like the one my honda has; I assume it's a flush attachment?

    thanks

    The white hose barb in back to the left of the pump (while looking at it from the rear) is the intercooler discharge line. Do not hook anything up to it. We're all talking about flushing from the brass garden hose connection opposite the fuel neck.
