flex ICE testing soon

Post by ACpower1 on Wed Oct 07, 2015 2:12 pm

going to be giving this rinse a try in the next week.        I will let you guys know how it goes,    supposedly the cleaning power is out performing many alkaline detergents like white lightning,    dry slurry,   and even some higher pH   pre sprays!    

but its an acid rinse.  


I plan on still pre spraying but running the rinse about 1/2 the recommended dilution.        


The less pre spray and the less rinse you use,    the more available clean water there is to absorb and flush out any residues either from your own pre spray or past cleanings.  


If Flex Ice doesnt perform well then ill be seriously looking into deionized water for this reason.    


Do any of you guys have any input on dionized water?   have you ever used it or do you know a relatively good water to produce it?

The whole deionized water topic normally develops into a fist fight with very strong opinions on both sides.

For me, it does provide a cleaning boost, but it also eats away at your machine's metal. In many cases, it removes the very thing that protects metal parts......I don't like the net gain in that equation.

Looks like copper is the only real concern with the kind of equipment that we utilize.  How much copper do you have in your system.....heater coils, brass parts, etc.?

LG coils are copper.

I believe that di water will corrode iron pretty quickly as well. I don't know if that puts blower vanes at risk or not, but it would be a concern.
