Amazon's inflatable cleaner is amazing stuff. IMHO
Sticky PVC tubes have nothing to do with the acid.. PVC is simply a poor choice for longevity in the UV. There are thousands upon thousands of PVC boats that have never been touched with acids that still suffer from stickytubeitus.

Our 1998 Zodiac Cadet Fastroller got sticky in under two years and had never been touched with anything but soap, water and UV.

Re: Using ON OFF on Awlgrip

Why is the gel better than the liquid?

As far as I can see the active constituents are the same.

Re: Using ON OFF on Awlgrip

I think I have seen ppl say FSR is ok is used briefly. Isn't that a milder on/off?
