Postby yourdarkesthour » Mon 02 Jan, 2006 22:35

High back-pressure

This may be caused by scaling or liming of the fabric on the grids, usually due to deposits of magnesium or calcium or both. To clean the grids soak them in six parts water to one part hydrochloric acid (muriatic acid or liquid acid).

Let the grids soak for at least 4-5 hours, then rinse thoroughly in fresh water before reassembly.

Hope this helps.
