Hi all

Has anyone tried to descale their Carver water heater in place?

I was thinking about pumping the appropraite solution of Citric acid into the hot system, leaving for a while, then back-flushing through the drain hole.

Any thoughts peeps?

I used white vinegar, our hot water tank is 10 ltr , so I emptied 3 bottles into a bucket and topped it up with water enough to fill the tank, I took the filter off the end of the pump and filled up the tank, I turned off the pump and opened the hot taps incase of expansion left for about 5 hours. Then emptied tank and flushed system twice. I dont know if it made a difference, but I know its not got any lime scale.

I clean the kettle at home with white vinegar it works and cheaper tham scale remover, also safer.

Cheers Jasper, if others have tried and it works then I feel safe to have a go.
