WHEN SHOULD I USE BARNACLE BUSTER ® ?

  • As a general rule of thumb, flushing your engine once a year is a good preventative maintenance measure. This is especially important on engines with flexible rubber impellers. Marine growth is the most common cause of impeller failure.

  • Monitoring your engines temperature is crucial. A consistent temperature increase of 5-10 degrees could mean a problem is starting to form within your cooling system. Flushing before the problem gets worse could save you a world of headaches.

  • On most engines, seawater discharged from the engine is used to cool the exhaust gases exiting the engine. If this water flow is reduced, steam (or white smoke) will begin to exit from the exhaust. One reason for this could be a clogged heat exchanger or after cooler. Flushing the engine may prove to be an inexpensive troubleshooting technique for a boat owner.

FAQS
  • Q. WHAT ABOUT ZINCS AND ALUMINUM ANODES?

    A. Barnacle Buster will dissolve small quantities of zincs or other sacrificial anodes. Many times small section of anodes will flake off and clog water passages. Barnacle Buster will dissolve these ‘flakes’ while also removing all of the marine growth. NOTE: ZINC ANODES WILL NEED TO BE REMOVED PRIOR TO OR REPLACED AFTER COMPLETION OF CLEANING.

  • Q. I CANNOT RECIRCULATE, HOW LONG SHOULD I LEAVE BARNACLE BUSTER SOAKING IN MY SYSTEM?

    A. Soaking times vary per equipment and amount of marine growth/scale present. Be sure to consult system specific instructions for recommended soak times.

  • Q. HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE BARNACLE BUSTER?

    A. We recommend flushing your systems twice a year as preventative maintenance. However, in warmer climates, you may want to consider flushing more often.

  • Q. DOES BARNACLE BUSTER HAVE A SHELF LIFE?

    A. Barnacle Buster does not have a shelf life. The product will remain active until it has been thoroughly used. Each gallon of ready to use solution will absorb 1.5 pounds of marine growth. Once that amount has been taken in, the product is no longer active and should be discarded. While we understand that it is sometimes difficult to see how much has been absorbed, you may drop a sea shell (calcium based object) in the solution. An active solution will dissolve the shell within 20 minutes.

  • Q. CAN I FLUSH MORE THAN ONE SYSTEM AT A TIME?

    A. Yes, you can, that’s what’s great advantage with Barnacle Buster. By connecting two systems together in a series you can easily flush both systems concurrently, saving you down time.
