Family just got certified. Does anyone here use salt away to clean their gear? Thanks in advance.

Iíve never used it and donít know anyone who does. Just rinse well with fresh water. Put fresh water in your BC to get any salt water out of it, but make sure you blow it up, turn it upside down and drain it several times, to make sure youíve gotten the salt water out of it.

I have hear good things about it, If I had a new motor I would probably use it after every flush and a little on the boat trailer. I have not used it but I may.

Shop around - Salt-X, salt terminator, salt away, and a few others on the market.

It really helps wash the salt residue from your boat, motor, trailer, and anything else you dunk in saltwater.

I use saltaway on all my gear that touches saltwater also boat, motor and trailer. As soon as we get back everything gets rinsed in a saltaway dunk and dried. Idk, makes me feel better.

Hama, are you talking about using saltaway on dive gear? If so, I've never even heard of anyone doing that. Hope all is well with you.

If naclH20dave uses it, I will trust him. As much diving as he does, he should know a secret or two.

All is well here in Okinawa. Got another year and then retirement back to Navarre.

For my dive gear (wetsuits, booties, BC's, etc): I've used green clean or equivalent (light detergent)for years. More like having a big bin with a few caps fulls in it. Dunk the gear in vigorously, hang up, rinse vigorously. My gear looks brand new without any salt related corrosion.
