Water Softener Cleaner
Rust Out softener cleaner chemically removes iron and rust build-up that coats the resin beds and fouls the softener. Pro Rust Out has Sodium Metabisulfate which will also sanitize the softener.
This iron build-up is not totally removed during normal regeneration of a water softener. Using Rust Out softener rust remover in a water softener will eliminate rust and foreign matter from the resin bed.
This increases the life of the softener and reduces rust staining on household fixtures and other surfaces. Use the softener rust remover regularly as preventative maintenance to ensure the softening and recharging efficiency of the softener's resin bed.
Softener Cleaner Instructions
Water Softeners: Rust Out softener rust remover dissolves the iron in the mineral bed and is rinsed from the softener much the same as salt brine.
First Application: Dissolve 1 cup in 1/2 gallon cold water. Pour directly into brine well (softeners with no brine well, pour directly into salt tank when salt level is low). Manually regenerate softener. Repeat for heavily fouled unit.
Preventative Maintenance: Add 1/4 cup for every 40lbs. of salt added to brine tank. Layer to ensure a continuous dose with each regeneration.
General Purpose Cleaning: Our softener rust remover works on dishwashers, dishes, glassware, white clothes or fabrics, and water softeners - follow directions on the back of the package.
