Water Treatment
« on: November 12, 2016, 05:56:08 AM »

Going back quite away but does anyone remember the powdered boiler treatment that Wood Doctor sold for their boiler plate stoves?

My question is.....what was the yellow paper like test strip included with each bottle? What type of material or what exactly was it?

Ph paper I would assume, to test how acidic or basic the water is.

Yes Wood doctor boiler treatment.the strip was for testing the ph.The paper I got with one bottle said keep the ph between 7 and8 max 8.5 another bottle said between 9 and 10 max 11.I don't believe they indicated what was in the bottle except saying scale inhibitor and oxygen scavenger.Knock on wood,my HE8000 is starting its 5th year.
