The asymmetric unit of the title salt, C8H22N4 2+·2C7H5O3 -, comprises half a 2,2′-(piperazine-1,4-di-yl)diethan-aminium dication plus a 2-hy-droxy-benzoate anion. In the crystal, the anions and cations are linked by N-H⋯O and O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds to form infinite two-dimensional networks parallel with the a unit-cell face. The conformation adopted by the cation in the crystal is very similar to that adopted by the same cation in the structures of the nitrate and tetra-hydrogen penta-borate salts.
