I have been using salt away for 5 years now on my outboard ( 300 HP Etech ) and float-on trailer and it has kept corrosion in check. I have not had to do any work on my breaks and my springs and running gear look almost like new. I trailer my boat and live in south Florida so the boat is used all year. The dispenser lasted 5 years and this is the first year I had to replace it.

This overpriced, poorly designed sprayer started leaking on the 2nd use. In addition, it does NOT suck the chemical out of the bottle, instead it adds water to it, then mixes/flows out of the nozzle. With this method, you get a stronger concentration at the beginning than the end of the flush. VERY poor design, given the expensive price tag of the unit.

Comments about Salt-Away Mixer Unit:

This is similar to the cheap hose end sprayers you get at a home improvement store with fertilizer or whatever except that is has hose connections at both ends. It does not siphon Salt-Away concentrate from the tank. It injects water into the tank so the delivered solution gets more and more diluted as you go. You can not return un-used Salt-Away back to the original container because it gets diluted. This mixer wastes a lot of Salt-Away unless you want to flush your engine and then spray down your entire large boat with more and more diluted solution. For engine flushing, this mixer wastes a lot of Salt-Away.

It is easy to see that Salt-Away really does wash salt away very quickly. Salt-Away is great. The mixer is not. Get yourself a hose end siphon instead.

        I'm on my second one in under a year. I use it at least once a week or every time the boat is out. One occurrence my hose leading from mixer unit to the muffs got a kink. Has happened before but this time the pressure cracked the resivour holding the salt away. Other than that. It has worked well

            The mixer is for the birds, my first one worked fine for awhile, but then the knob on top seized up. A second unit doesn't seal for beans, so when the water is turned on it leaks like a sieve. Needs a redesign in my opinion.

                This mixer worked great to flush my outboard and to spray the pontoon with salt solution. I see no problems with the design or quality. In saying that it does look to be fragile so be careful.

                            Hooked it to my engine. Turned on the water and BAM, the threaded container just sheared off the top section.
