Sea Flush

I have been looking into a system called sea flush. The funnels are pretty straight forward and can be made at home but I do have a couple of questions. If any of you have used this system were you satisfied with the results, and were you able to find any over the counter chemicals to use in place of the barnacle buster that the company sells. Thanks have a great day Ed

I bought and used it this past fall, for my A/C and generator. Worked well, as shown in their online videos

SeaFlush looks like a nice product for winterizing - which I don't do here in the Carolinas. Using a shop vac to blow out lines is a neat idea. http://seaflush.com/

Take off your sea strainer, trace it onto starboard. Cut and insert a threaded barb in the middle. Dead simple, fast and under $5.00.

Bought one last fall, it sure saved me time winterizing my A/C, Genny, Engines. Get all the accessories, that hose adaptor and a pail works great sucking multiple gallons of antifreeze into a system. And it worked just like the ten year old showed on the you tube vids.

Looks great!! The only problem (for me) is for some reason my engines' water supply do not have strainers. So I had to get one of those devices that looks like toilet plunger wedge it underneath to winterize.

This job (of course) is done after is has rained and the ground is wet and muddy!!! LOL :banghead:

Or you can close your seacocks and pull the hose off and place it in bucket or I've used the jug and an adaptor hose right to the sea pump and pumped the antifreeze in. Though I don't know how easy it is to get to your seacocks or sea pumps.

I did have a brief go at removing the hoses from the seacocks. My marina buddy informed me that I would still be trying to get those off by the time spring launch came around :-D . So under the boat we went. It acutally is not so bad.

Yes, they can be a pain, an electric heat gun on the hoses for a few minutes helps loosen the hose from the barb, you could also cut the hoses and put in a capable or valve tee for easy access, then you just have to shut the seacocks uncap the tee and add your antifreeze, then you don't have to be in the mud?

It's easier if you use a hose pick, heat helps too. Once you remove them the first time, they're typically easier to remove the following years.
