    My chemical pump is broken for good. Anyone put acid rinse directly into fresh water tank? If so, help with dilution ratio? Maybe just a pump up sprayer mist after rinsing with fresh water is best until I get the pump replaced?

    I have done it what do you want to know?

    1 gallon all fiber will do 100 plus gallons fresh tank. Just dump it in.

    Hmmm, I wonder what the long term affects of running a rinse through all that important hardware might be? I'm not willing to find out. I don't use a rinse product but our water is slightly acidic so maybe it's not as helpful here.

    Yes, I'm wonder this and if deemed ok to use how to find the dilution ratio. My acid rinse is 1-2 cups into 5 gallons but then metered at 2 gph

    If I had to chose which rinse to put in the water tank, I’d chose soda ash over acid rinse.

    Well definitely cheap but don't have time to immediately go 1.5 hours and then wait all day.

    soda ash will more damage then acid rinse.
    the secondary goal of the rinsing phase is the bring the fiber back to a neutral ph, which is 7.
    pre spray is 8.5 :biggrin: up to 14ph:eekk:. A 2-4 ph acid rinse helps reach a 7.

    @dealtimeman is right-----1 gallon acid to about 100 gallon water is about right since its NOT getting diluted as it would in a mixing tank.

    I'm less concerned about the ph of the carpet as I am of the condition of the components of the water system in the tm (water pump, pressure regulator, etc). Would the soda ash do more damage than an acid rinse in the water pump?

    Order it actually order two so you have a backup next time. It's easy to replace.
