Please refer to instruction supplied with "Super Iron-Out" or "Iron-Rid".
Washing machine and dishwasher:
With machine empty, add 6 ounces of "Super Iron-Out" instead of soap. Run machine through a normal cycle. Repeat the process is necessary. Also, clean out the sediment screen at the water inlet fitting on the machine's water pump.
Leaky taps and toilets:
Replace old tap washer and toilet valves to correct any leaks or raw, rusty water will be drawn into pipes when filter is backwashing. This will then cause rust-stains in sinks and toilet bowls.
Tap screens and Aerators:
Remove and clean any crud or rust particles from all tap screens and aerators. They should then stay clean indefinitely.
Old bypass valves:
If rusty water shows up anywhere, after the above clean up has been done, please check for a defective bypass valve that may still be plumbed in the lines where an old water softener or iron filter was located.
Cleaning Up Your Plumbing System
Home Owner Service/Maintenance Information - Important
Your household's plumbing system and water - using appliances, that have been exposed to iron - contaminated water, must be cleaned of the rust and slime that have collected in them...or iron staining will continue to be a problem, even after your new water treatment system is installed.
Be sure to do the following:
Pour 6 ounces of "Iron-Rid" or "Super Iron-Out" (available from Water by George) into the flush tank of the toilet. Let it dissolve, then slightly depress the flush lever to let some of the solution out, so that the water outlet - ports around the rim of the bowl get cleaned. Let the mixture stand overnight and flush to drain in the morning. If iron deposits or stains remain, repeat procedure until toilet tank is clean.
Note: If a "rotten egg" smell occurs in your hot water, remove and discard the Anode Rode from the water heater. It may be located at the top of the tank or inside the cold water inlet line. At the same time, pour half a gallon of household bleach into the heater tank and let stand for one hour before draining. Do not replace the Anode Rod.
