Do I Really Need To Use Water Treatment In My Outdoor Boiler?
Would You Drive Your Car Without Oil?
Of course not! Equally so you should never operate your outdoor boiler without water treatment. You will NOT discover how badly you are damaging your boiler without water treatment UNTIL IT IS TOO LATE!
And you won’t know whether your water is properly treated without sending a water sample to our Lab for your FREE Water Testing and Analysis.
The “Free Water Testing Info” section of OutdoorBoiler.com answers these important questions:
Why Should I Use Water Treatment?
Simple - because without it, your investment is wasted. You wouldn’t buy groceries and then leave them at the store, would you? You made a big investment in your outdoor boiler - but unless you use water treatment, the life of that investment will go from 40+ years, to maybe less than 5 years! You are too smart to make that mistake.
Why Should I Submit a Water Sample?
Why? So you can be sure your boiler is properly protected. (And to keep your warranty valid!) Our Laboratory has expensive testing equipment that provides sophisticated analysis of your boiler water. Those test results are then run through a computer algorithm that provides you a customized report so that you can have the peace of mind knowing that your investment is properly protected. If your water test results are not satisfactory, you will get specific instructions on what needs to be done. In some cases, more water treatment is needed, and in other cases, some sediment may need to be flushed from your system. We won’t rest until you are properly protected!
What happens if I don’t use Water Treatment?
The Bad News: Untreated boiler water will eat holes in steel immediately upon contact (rust, corrosion), then your boiler steel will become paper-thin and start to leak.
The Worst Part: At that time, your investment will be lost. It would be like buying a new car, and driving it without oil in the engine...it is only a matter of time and the investment will be worthless.
The Good News: It is never too late to start protecting your investment!! Liquid Armor Certified Water Treatment is the only way to treat your boiler – Liquid Armor has been formulated to protect the exact grade of steel in your boiler. Just start now and stop the rapid destruction of your steel. If you do this, you can Keep Your Family Toasty Warm and Comfortable for Decades.
How Much Water Treatment Should I Add?
For the first-time treatment, one gallon of Liquid Armor will treat 200 gallons of water. This is a generalization because water quality is widely different around the country – this is why the FREE water testing is so very important.
For a boiler that has been properly treated previously, just add one-half gallon every 12 months before sending your annual water sample.
How Do I Get Water Sample Bottles?
Each gallon of Liquid Armor is shipped with two FREE water sample bottles, shipping labels and shipping boxes. Just order a gallon of Liquid Armor at OutdoorBoiler.com, and your water sample bottles will be included at no charge!
Alternatively, you can order water sample bottles in kits of 2 for a small charge plus shipping. Existing customers may order one package of water bottles per year at no charge using the discount code “FREEKIT” at checkout. Shipping charges apply
