Overview

Whitlam Flow-Aide System Descaler Kit has been designed to work in conjunction with isolation valves that provide 3/4 inch hot and cold service connections. If these valves have not been installed on your heater, then the heater must be disconnected from the plumbing and drained, and the Whitlam Flow-Aide System Descaler Kit must be connected directly to the cold and hot water connections. Whitlam Flow-Aide System Descaler is NSF approved and safe to dispose of in drains*.

* Flow-Aide is biodegradable with a BOD value of 16 mg/l. This normally allows the product to be water flushed down sewers. Check with local ordinances and regulations in your area prior to disposal.
