    if you use chlorinated water it works without anything else . most tap water in uk does have chlorine added at the water works . to keep pipes clean . it works in your tank etc as well.

    I think the stronger concentration of chlorine (Milton etc ) attacks the stainless steel tank and pipework in some models of heater.

    Puriclean does not contain Chlorine which makes it safe to use with boilers that are SS. I used Milton tablets only in the caravans toilet flush water tank as it stopped the formation of black algae

    I've have been using Milton Fluid for over 40 years with no damage to any boiler at all
    All these new Bio products are just yet another con ..if they are natural
    Why are they so expensive ?
    Most of us have SS sinks ..do these sinks rot away when you are soaking stained tea towels in a bleach solution ? No you are being conned by the Greedy so called Green company's

    why use anything . tap water works and is cheaper. if the vehicle hasnt been used for awhile fill ,leave a couple of days, drain ,and fillup and off you go.
