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, about equal to the rate some people relieve themselves? Do the proper maintenance, do not be someone's fool, lackey  and money spender as you keep replacing quite expensive equipment when it should last for decade(s) if properly maintained. Talk to us. Do not be fooled by misleading and simple answers that are possibly completely untrue.

This is being set up to try advertising on Google for Water Heater Warehouse Etc., Inc. Northbrook IL 60062 847-564-4448 which is a Wholesale Distributor anyone can come in and purchase...anyone. Illinois State Law says the items we sell are not restricted, you can buy like they do. The Big Box Stores have been doing it for years, no one complained.  Now, we are doing it to, so we can shoot extremely great prices on the Flagship Model A. O. Smith Water Heaters.  Of course Water Heater Warehouse has Sump Pumps, Copper Fittings that are often 15% to 50% less, and the A. O. Smith water heaters with the special glass lining, so if you let us explain the maintenance, that water heater can last 15-35 years. Seriously.

Just give it a chance.

By the way, Contractors are supposed to have a tax resale certificate.  They are often quoting homeowners too high because they pay us tax when they should not pay us tax,  then add their profit onto a starting price that includes the tax.  They are supposed to not pay us tax, then when they put on their markup, charge tax at the end of the call so your price is in line, like you do when checking out anywhere if you do not have a tax resale number.  If the State ever enforces the tax laws that apply, everyone's other taxes could go down, or not go up.  It is just the State has let this sector not pay taxes for decades, so they put it on your property tax and elsewhere on you, the end user.  

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. A. O. Smith ProLine is that good if you work with it. The builders water heaters have a glasslining that dissolves off at a rate of up to 5 times faster.  Too much to say on a web page.  Come in, call, come in, and we will explain. Please have a learning cap on, we don't debate with know it alls. They believe obsolete information or want to screw an end user.  We do not tolerate that type of business.

This is an unofficial page. The only authorized page is the website shown at the bottom for Tri-Bros (tm) Chemical Corp.

Mag-Erad is a specially formulated dry powder concentrate that may be shipped UPS. It is not DOT regulated. See SDS Sheets.  Looking up the UPS shipping Charts, there appears to be a great Formula in the Mag-Erad.  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.  One dumb person told me, oh I can buy X for X on the internet.  Then I asked the dummy what the ingredient(s) contained as contamination.  All I got was a duh! Another dummy with his Internet.  So much information, but no questions, wrong questions, too much parsed information but no knowledge. Just because it is on the internet means nothing.  How many papers have been "out there" but not peer reviewed and years later found to be frauds.  That is the Internet.  It is an unregulated wild west of those who mislead and play on lack of complete knowledge of the purchaser.  Our products are traceable. When someone knocks at our door to sell cheaper materials, we get rid of them, sometimes nicely, sometimes not so nice. 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.  

Now a word about how some people end up confusing you.  You read this and decide if it is accidental or deliberate.  We make no statement it is for you to think about.  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.

The story about confusion:

This is the REAL LIME-EATER from TRI-BROS tm CHEMICAL CORP. not that other product that is using our Trademarked Name selling a soap solution then seemingly trying to switch people to buy unknown chemicals, we do not know how much lead, cadmium, radioactivity, poisons, etc. are in their muck.  

Lime Scale Remover:  We do know that Patented Tri-Bros. Chemical Corp. Lime-Eater (r)  is FOOD GRADE and the REAL DEAL. The Feds need to investigate the company confusing our customers.  I call upon the Federal Trade Commission, the Department of Justice, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the FBI to go over their records and possible bait and switch and other business practices.  

There is a company using our Lime-Eater name, we do not support or condone their use.  We have no control as to what goop they put in the containers, our quality control is so strong, so the way they did it was to get a trademark in another class and then suddenly without our knowledge of its existence start selling it and in our class. We do not know what is in it, if it contains a percentage of poisons, is it food grade, is it technical grade, what is the active material, and of course many companies water it down so much they should be selling you their product for the price of water.  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 can outright lie, 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.  Scam artists make millions in such manners. If you read this far, your Intellectual ability is either very high or you are a wannabe competitor. 

Radio People, such as WCPT Mighty House,    Ron Cowgill is a person I talk to, he is just likable. It is great to be around people that actually care about each other.  You are not a thing to be taken.  You are a human being and so are we. If that is a fuller relationship that you find useful, people caring about each other, that is an important part of how we do business.

The 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.

 Mag-Erad® Deliming PowerHouse.  It is going to be very easily available soon. We look forward to direct Sales, but distributors, you might want to contact   Jason at R. C. Sales and Service, manufacturer's Representative  877-598-1233 or of course call  at the Tri-Bros. Chemical Corp. factory, 847-564-2320.   What it will do is going to make it your favorite product of its Kind.  This stuff is Power Packed. yet it is Non-Toxic. 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, we are instead talking MAG-ERAD POWERFUL. This has staying POWER. It is all the great PLUS!

Mag-Erad® Lime-Eater® Borcoil® all Trademarked Deliming Products comprised of special non-toxic materials that are not imported from dangerous Countries, where the quality is unknown, these are all food grade active ingredients. Mag-Erad can now be used in Tankless Water Heaters using Manufacturer's Instructions along with instructions on new Mag-Erad Label.

To the bloggers, thank you, a lot of your positive feedback has been helpful. 

Tri- Bros. Chemical Corporation also called TBC or Tri-Brothers or Tri-Bros. Chemical Corp.

manufacturers under Trademark registrations and Patents that were previously obtained:

Lime-Eater Delimer for Professional Use

BorCoil Bor-Coil Bor Coil for Professional Use

Mag-Erad Delimer for Residential Gas Tank Type  Tankless Water Heaters and Electric Water Heaters.

also versions available for humidifiers. 

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 so pathetic, 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:

For the radio Show Hosts I talk to, please feel free to continue those conversations, and for the others who are interested, you can look up my profile on LinkedIn and then after you see that, we can arrange for me to appear on your show to help assure people are safe.

Always remember during your shows to teach that 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.

As my close friends know, I 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 van 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.

See for a site that does independent Internet Sales. To this point they have shown themselves to be ethical and serve their customers though this is not an endorsement They have no direct connection at SDS, and our listing them here is merely a suggestion. They are an independent company.  People who play fair and especially who care about others, what it should be like in the marketplace.

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.
