    yeah use dish water liquid

    I have been using Joy dish washer detergent. The Kawi seems to
    like the lemon scent the best !

    Salt Away is expensive and when I used it on the exterior one time
    I didn't like the residue.

    I just put a squirt in the hose before I couple it up with the fitting
    on the Ski and let them suds roll on through. I use it on my other
    ski, a SeaDoo 2 stroke, runs good also.

    Cool Flush

    I look at it like this I only ride in the Ocean. I guess I will stay with the flush even though it cost a few bucks it's cheaper than a repair bill. Justa thought.

    I find that if you Buy the LARGE container(like what a boat service place would buy) you will save a good amount of Money. you also might want to go in with a buddy . keep the big container at a central location and draw from it.Other than that.. I have No other Solution.(no pun intended)

    While I agree with tomgtv, using Joy is less expensive, try using Joy while rinsing the engine compartment and then getting all the suds out the drain holes.

    I like using Salt Away. I ride about 50/50 fresh/salt. While it's more expensive, overall I find it easier to use and rinse off and I don't have any residue, though I chamois everything dry as much as I can.

    At the rate I am going, it is going to take me a year to use $25.00 worth of Salt Away and I ride almost every weekend. Not a bad investment.

    Somebody posted awhile ago that dishwashing machine soap was formulated not to foam up and was basically the same as Salt-away chemically... primarily a rinsing agent. If you want to try a search...

    Salt Away and Fluid Film - keep life simple and your ski like new. A little goes a long way for both. Buying smart is one key to keep maintenance costs minimal. Leaf blowers provide a gentle yet accelerated dry time.

    Your time is valuable too. I find this trio to be a great combo for the mandatory basics.

    Joy worked good for me. Also doubles as a streak-free clean for windows, better than Windex. Just mix a lil with water.
