Servicing and Cleaning the AquaRite Cell
According to the AquaRite operation manual “Mild Acid Washing” should only be applied in severe cases where flushing and scraping will now remove the majority of deposits. To Acid wash, turn off power to AquaRite. Remove cell from piping. In a clean plastic container, mix a 4:1 solution of water to muriatic acid (one gallon of water to one quart of muriatic acid). ALWAYS ADD ACID TO WATER – NEVER ADD WATER TO ACID. Be sure to wear rubber gloves and appropriate eye protection. The level of the solution in the container should just reach the top of the cell so that the wire harness compartment is NOT submerged. It may be helpful to coil the wiring before pouring the mixture into the cell. The cell should soak for a 4-10 minutes and then rinse with a high pressure garden hose. If any deposits are still visible, repeat soaking and rinsing. Replace cell and inspect again periodically.
