What do I do if the water in the whirlpool is cloudy due to limescale precipitation?
Lower the pH value of the water to 5.0 for one to two days. The limescale will dissolve again due to the low pH value.
Afterwards, you should take the following precautions during operation:
- Never let the pH value rise above 7.4. Always lower it in time with pH-Minus.
- Add more Lotus Clean Calcium Ex to the water.
- Use partially softened water for filling. (Water hardness 7° German hardness is ideal)
- If you have hard water (more than 14° German hardness - you can ask your water supplier for the water hardness), you should lower the pH value to 5.0 for 2 days every 4 to 8 weeks and then increase it again to 7.0. This will dissolve any limescale deposits in the pipes.
Be sure to use the Lotus Clean pH-Minus Liquid for this, as it contains special limescale dissolvers. You can use any commercially available pH lifter to raise the pH.
