    I gave Untalan1 my Saltaway stuff, he has a bunch of stuff because he lives in Pacifica. I do not have ports only what I have come up with over the years.........Jetspray

    My main and my kicker have flushing ports so I don't have to run the motors. I use the Salt-Away system and it works well.

    Re: Don't forget to flush after Pyramid

    I use vinegar from Walmart in a steel garbage can and fill it up to the intake of my kicker. To go through my main motor I have a valve system installed to put a garden hose on the intake side of the cooler, slowly warm up the engine with water running then add vinegar using a Miracle Grow hose end sprayer inline with the water hose, turn it upside down and flush through a couple of gallons of vinegar.......Jetspray

    Don't forget to flush after Pyramid

    Pyramid boaters, dont forget to flush your motors. Its salty and lots of semi dissolved Tufa that will plug up motors.
