I use my own urine in the water tank it's highly acidic.
Drowns out cat urine!!
if the manufacturer say X and your using a water softener cut it in half!
Also how big is your fresh water tank?
That’s why your always pissed off!
Alkaline cleaners leave deposits inside the plumbing of the heat exchangers, reducing their efficiency and even clogging them in severe cases.
Running an acid through the system will clean out those deposits.
I haven't had a chem injector in years. Never had a problem. It can leave fuzzy looking stuff in the bottom of the tank. Probably fillers or stabilizers of some sort. Using flex ice for a while now.
Acid cleaners do the same thing. Has nothing to do with acid or alkaline. Has to do with the make up of the product. Vinegar or descaling products clean out your system because they have no soap or detergent products or fillers. Acid cleaners leave as much residue as alkaline cleaners.
I’d say about 16 oz for 75 gal
I made the mistake of dumping into 75 gal tank half gal to a gal using all fiber rinse from JonDon. Stuff ok but foams up. Lesson learned. So now if a had to it, 16 ounces is the sweet spot for me.
Most rinse products should be diluted at either 1:320 or 1 :640. Use 1:640 if you have soft water. 1:320 if you have hard water. Somewhere in between is OK for most.
100 gallon fresh water tank would need somewhere between 20 and 40 ounces. A quart would be a nice round amount.
I would run an emulsifier for my rinse if I had to dump it right in the tank. Just dilute it a lot. Wayyy cheaper and easier on the parts.
At 1:640 whatever you put in your rinse is going to be pretty inexpensive. An acid side rinse helps keeps down (or eliminates) the build-up of scale in your plumbing.
