The Term Self Cleaning is Probably the Biggest Piece of Puffery Ever in the Water Heater Industry.  Do you actually believe something non-scientifically repeatable, that putting a few holes in a plastic inlet tube will move hard rocks and sediment at .5 gallons a minute? Do the proper maintenance.don't keep replacing expensive equipment when it should last for decade(s) if properly maintained. Talk to us. Do not be fooled by misleading and simple answers.

To the professionals, we have to explain the new National Codes that will prevent Water Heaters from exploding, due to the lazy or money driven ones that want it to fall apart and leak so that you have to buy a new water heater when with maintenance, the water heater would not leak for many years to decades longer than you expect

Mag-Erad Case  868503000411 UPC-A    

Mag-Erad 868503000404 UPC-A  868503000411 is a specially formulated dry powder concentrate that may be shipped UPS. It is not DOT regulated. See SDS Sheets.  Properly used, it it very powerful.  You work with it.  Remove the loose and excess soft scale that may be flushed with the proper drain assemblies and the use of certain tools or wet type vacuum equipment, always use a Ground Fault protected receptacle of course. Then, follow Label Instructions, and for Electric Residential Water Heaters, see the special Instructions printed on the Catalogue Sheet.  Call Tri-Bros. Chemical if there are any questions.  Also, visit the Tri-Bros. Chemical Corp Website.  Those visits are important because any literature can become obsolete the moment it is done being printed.  Changes can be found where there is more real time interaction, websites, emails, phone calls.

Next, we have the Original Bor-Coil. The "Old-Timers" know it well.  This product is very powerful and can not ship UPS unless special packaging is used.  Even though it too uses a Food grade Active ingredient(s) these are DOT Regulated. Tri-Bros. Chemical Corp ships Bor-Coil via truck, normally freight collect since the large accounts  have companies they negotiated with for reduced freight rates.    

What does Bor-Coil do? Anything.  OK, let's make that answer practical.  Stainless Steel is now used in a lot of condensing unit high efficiency heat exchangers.  However, stainless steel has had several studies that show it can be prone to warping especially with lime scale build up, as is copper and tank type units made of glass lined steel and stainless steel, since the heat transfer is slower than copper. But, copper is prone to corrosion due to the combustion condensate externally. Stainless steel is attacked by muriatic hydrochloric products. It can stress corrosion crack.  Even those who see new restaurant kitchen sinks often see a label warning, do not use chlorine bleach in the sink.  That is why. The chlorine, such as in hydrochloric acid will crack it.  Bor-Coil is not, repeat not, hydrochloric/muriatic.  It also does not form toxic by products such as highly toxic iron chlorides if used in glass lined steel water heaters. Bor-Coil is designed to meet all plumbing codes that say toxic chemicals must NEVER be introduced into a Potable (drinking water) system. That is also why, like the Mag-Erad, the active ingredients are food grade.  Technical Grades, cheap imports, no one knows what toxic metals or oraganometals or solvents or whatever is hiding in there, waiting to poison people over time. We care very much about people.  Food Grade.

Our products are traceable. When someone knocks at our door to sell cheaper materials, we get rid of them. Mag-Erad and Bor-Coil will not be compromised with material of unknown content, or materials bought based on cheap.  Your health and life is more important, isn't it? And, if you are a Professional, you do care about your customers.   

Coils, Heat Exchangers, Tank Type Water Heaters, Cooling Equipment, Humidifiers, these are all equipment that Bor-Coil may be used to remove carbonate scale.  

Tri-Bros. Chemical Corp. Made in the USA stands for you. It stands for doing the right thing.  Hopefully, that is what you want when you buy products Made in the United States with sourcing of the best ingredients possible.


Lime Scale Remover:  We do know that Patented Tri-Bros. Chemical Corp. Lime-Eater (r)  is FOOD GRADE and pure.  

There is a company we assert improperly using our Lime-Eater name,in 22 oz. soap bottles.  We have no control as to what  they put in the containers, our quality control is so immensely strong,. Also, there are companies that sell watered down toxic or poisonous materials.

There is a Muriatic/Hydrochloric product that says it is safe. It is not, they claim it is 5% hydrochloric, but, I would bet that company owner would not stick his head in a vat of the stuff and open his eyes, yet their MSDS sheet makes it sound like you can.  Meanwhile that product fumes, get in your lungs, eats at them, but they are really cheap. What is your life worth, and how much do you have to use to dissolve the same amount 5 gallons of Tri-Bros (tm) patented Lime-Eater, Borcoil or Mag-Erad (Powder Concentrate) will dissolve. Remember, there is no oversight on MSDS and SDS Sheets. A company canwrite anything, and OSHA does nothing. OSHA should be reviewing all products and their declared SDS Sheets based on standards of proof.  No one should be allowed to make claims of safety when they never tested or proved the safety. The companies think you are not intelligent. They think you do not question what you are told. They think you believe it because it looks official in some way. 

The unofficial FaceBook Page for Mag-Erad and Bor-Coil.  It is intended to help answer technical question from the people that are the Patent Holder(s). This gives you first person guidance. Again, it is unofficial.

When we say Powerful, that  means not just a few bubbles for a few seconds like the watery stuff shown on TV that is made from an extract of sore muscles and a lot of water, or the weak vinegar that bubbles a few seconds and leaves the crust of lime still coating the heat exchangers or tanks or elements, we are instead talking MAG-ERAD POWERFUL. This has staying POWER. It is all the great PLUS!

A. O. Smith Corporation has an incredible product along with the Mag-Erad called Un-Lime.

No highly diluted knock off substitutes are worthy, with their Hydrochloric/Muriatic, sometimes really watered down and always fuming, also attacks copper and causes Iron Chlorides which perpetually corrode the tanks, it never flushes out but forms a corrosion cell, no cheap sour milk, lactic acid, no vinegar which contains acetic acid which attacks copper and in the purer form was used as a wart remover, there are things being sold that are not helpi, but in this 5 second world how do you know? That is why it is important to discuss in depth.

Lime-Eater  available through many wholesalers including as a master Supplier, Rheem Manufacuring because it is properly formulated for the uses intended.

You can always ask questions for more technical advice email me at:

The CSA Rating is used for the temperature and Pressure relief valve for Potable Systems. This is Critical. The other rating is not set up to clear at the 20 - 80 pounds of a Potable System. The NB/ASME is set up at 125 or 150 Pounds, which is not helpful because water can get over 350'F and flash scald to death anyone opening a faucet. See my Task Committee work for more information.

Marv Boiko changed the industry by inventing first in class products that would remove scale deposits without poisons, and are very safe if reasonably used, and to prove it, he was granted United States Patents. I, this is an unofficial page, which is why using the word I, because the Company is a Team of many people doing a lot for the Industry,  hold several United States patents and write entire manuals and do very technical research so that we can truthfully answer questions, not make up fantasy answers based on enticing you to buy something.  We work with people. It is the right way to treat others. Then, you can make in informed decision. We have an honest approach to helping you make the best decisions to maintain equipment that is worth many hundreds of dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Mag-Erad(r) 2 Pound Can UPC-A Code is 868503000404 in individual units.

in a 12 pack the UPC-A Code for that marking is Mag-Erad 2 Pound Can x 12 86850300041. 

To people who care about each other, we want to all form a great team perhaps, then this generation will see what many of us older people already know.
