Protecting Your Yacht

Engine Protection for Inboards and Auxiliary engines

There are TWO different ways you can flush Salt-Away through your inboard engine:

Auxiliary engines may be flushed in a flush bag filled with Salt-Away solution.

Direct Injection Kit

The Salt-Attack Direct Injection Kit is designed for all moored Yachts with inboard/outboard motors to flush and protect your expensive marine engines without leaving the helm.

Salt-Away’s unique formula protects your engine’s cooling system even when using salt water

It protects all open and closed circuit salt water cooling systems by injecting a 50/50 mixture of Salt-Away and fresh water.

There are a number of different kit options available to suit your yachts set up, ranging from a single engine flush right up to twin engines and a gen sets plus air conditioning flush. We can also customise your kits to fit your exact set up.

The Salt-Attack Direct Injection Kit comes ready to install with wiring, tubing, quick connect fittings, designed to be drilled and tap into water strainer/water pump. Comes with easy to follow instruction manual.

The kit comes in two versions, wireless and non-wireless. Wireless model allows for easy installation and use as no wiring is needed forward of the motor as you control the unit remotely using the remote control supplied. Non-wireless kits come with 3 core wire and a rocker switch to be mounted at the helm.

The Salt-Attack Direct Injection Kit will connect to 12V power, and has an adjustable regulating valve. Once installed all you need to do is keep the reservoir topped up with Salt-Away concentrate and flush your engine for 30 seconds after every use.

A Direct Injection Kit will save you time and maintenance costs on your yachts motor(s).
