Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Even for a Non-Mechanic! I'm not a mechanic but wanted to avoid having to pay a few hundred bucks to winterize my boat. This kit was very straight-forward and easy to use. I used it to winterize my Bayliner 185 and the process could not have been simpler. The best part is that I'll already have this kit when it is time to winterize the boat again next year. All that I'll have to buy next year for the winterization is more RV anti-freeze! Definitely get this kit. By the time you bought a hose, container, valves, couplers etc. you'd most likely meet or exceed the cost of this excellent all-in-one kit. Don't forget to buy the flusher muffs though if you don't already own a pair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Saved Me A Lot of Time and Effort I bought this kit last year so this is the 2nd season I have used it. It is easy to use if you just follow the instructions. Be sure you poke a hole in the vent nipple as it is not vented when you get it (or mine wasn't) The other thing I would suggest is using Teflon tape on all the connections. Mine tended to leak a bit until I taped it up. One of the more critical things to do is to be sure you add water to your antifreeze if it calls for it. If you don't it's too thick to be pulled up into the engine with just the impeller in the lower unit. The directions state you have to thin it down as per the anti-freeze instructions. I have used it winterizing my boat (I/O) and both my SeaDoo's. Filling up the five gallon container is imperative if you want a thorough mixture throughout your engine. You must use all of the mixture (again, it's in the instructions).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beware of the vent hole I haven't seen anyone else mention this so maybe mine was defective, but be sure to check that the vent hole is actually open before using. I removed the vent cap per instructions but didn't notice until I started winterizing that the vent hole was not actually bored out. I didn't notice until the container had sucked in to the point that the engine stopped getting flow. Luckily I was able to switch back to water and cool things down. I had to bore out the vent hole with a screwdriver to get proper flow. The product works well, once everything is opened up properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If a mom can Sdo it, you can! Im a single mom and beginning boater. With recent hard frost here in California I was warned the boat block could freeze. The boat was given to me so I have had no experience whatsoever with the mechanical side of a boat. Im a big beleiver in proper care and maintenance so I started investigating winterizing online. The videos, instructions and this product made getting the needed antifreeze in the boat simple. I also fogged the engine and got the fuel stabilizer in the tank. Feeling very accomplished. If I can winterize a boat, anyone can!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to hook up and worked as advertised The product worked great and was easy to use. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. The only minor hit is that the instructions tell you to that your engine will be completely protected when there is one quart of antifreeze remaining in the 5 gallon fill tank. There is no precise way of knowing when there is just one quart left. My guess was off, I ended up with about 3/4 of a gallon left in the fill tank! I'm sure I'll be fine but I wish they had markings on the fill tank to let you know when to turn off the fill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't have been any easier This was the first time I ever winterized my boat so I really appreciated the easy-to-understand assembly and use directions. The diverter is right at the plastic storage tank so switching from hose water to antifreeze can be done from inside the boat. This makes it very easy to do by yourself. Honestly, the hardest part was going to the store to pick-up the five gallons of RV antifreeze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Winterizing Easy to use. Very easy and simple instructions. This is the only product I have found on the market that allows you to run your engine, allowing it reach operating temps., and then you can add your antifreeze. This took all of 20 minutes, from setup, to completing the process. Fast and easy. The only problem I had, was the seam in the handle leaked a little, but it was no major problem.
