- Normal Dose Rate:
Use neat or dilute to a maximum of 25% (1:3).Instructions:
Add 15 litres of water to a clean container (min 40 litres capacity) and add 5 litres of product. For heavy deposits, or to speed up the descaling process, the product can be prepared as a 2:1 or 1:1 ratio, or neat for very stubborn deposits.
- Remove the showerhead and submerge in the freshly prepared solution.
- Remove and re-submerge the shower head several times to allow fresh product to reach restricted parts.
- As the scale and debris is dissolved, the solution will effervesce until the showerhead and components are clean. Leave for a further 5 minutes to ensure optimal disinfection.
- Rinse thoroughly after required contact time. Failure to rinse thoroughly could lead to staining.
Once the shower head has been reassembled, thoroughly flush the unit for at least 1 minute before returning the unit to service.
Fresh product has a strong orange / pink colour. When the acidity of the product is depleted it turns yellow. A fresh solution should then be prepared.
If the acid solution is still active (solution colour is orange), it should be neutralised prior to disposal.
If you can’t remove your shower heads because they are fixed to the wall – try our AquaCert Shower Head Cleaner GEL
