Which is the Best Anti-corrosion Spray for Jet Ski and Other Maintenance Tips

Keeping on top of the maintenance of your personal watercraft will cut down on repair bills and ensure that it is ready for action whenever you are. It’s important to consider ways to stave off dreaded corrosion and address other common issues, so you can keep your vehicle safe and in optimal condition for as long as possible.

Anti-corrosion sprays

Corrosion is the process by which metal surfaces deteriorate over time due to exposure to moisture and other corrosive agents. Corrosion can cause rust, which weakens the metal and can lead to the failure of critical components.

Corrosion can be caused by saltwater, humidity and acidic substances, to name a few of the environmental factors. It can also be caused by poor jet ski maintenance practices, like leaving the vessel in the water for a long time or not washing and drying it after use.

There are several types of corrosion that can affect jet skis, including uniform corrosion, galvanic corrosion, crevice corrosion, and pitting corrosion. Each type of corrosion has its own unique characteristics and can cause different types of damage to the metal surface.

Anti-corrosion sprays work by creating a barrier between the metal and the elements, preventing moisture and other corrosive agents from penetrating the surface. Anti-corrosion sprays are commonly used on jet skis to protect metal components such as the engine, trailer, and other metal parts.

Choosing the Best Anti-Corrosion Spray

When choosing an anti-corrosion spray for a jet ski, you need to think about a number of things, such as the type of metal being protected, where the jet ski will be used, how often it will be used, and how much the spray costs.

There are several different types of anti-corrosion sprays available in the market, each with its own unique characteristics and benefits. These include silicone sprays, wax-based sprays, oil-based sprays, and other specialty sprays. 

One such option for you to help protect as part of your jet ski maintenance is the Sea-doo Multi-purpose Lube, which is ideal for high humidity environments, as well as getting rid of any corrosive agents that may attach to your PWC's engine. Another option is Yamaha's Yamalube which is waterproof and helps to prevent corrosion by forming a protective layer on your craft, so that water will just bead off, without starting to cause any rusting issues.

Other Maintenance Tips for Jet Skis

Regular cleaning and inspection of a jet ski can help prevent corrosion and other types of damage. This means cleaning the outside of the jet ski, checking for cracks or other damage to the hull, and looking for signs of wear or damage on the engine and other parts.

Proper storage techniques are also important for jet ski maintenance. This includes putting the jet ski away in a dry, well-ventilated place, covering it with a protective cover, and taking out the battery when it won't be used for a long time.

Proper engine maintenance is essential for ensuring the optimal performance and longevity of a jet ski. This includes regular oil changes, checking the spark plugs, and maintaining the fuel system.
