CONTROL CHEMICAL TREATMENT
Outdoor Furnace Water Treatment
Crown Royal Stoves are manufactured with 409 Titanium Enhanced Stainless Steel
This provides you with the best corrosion resistance possible but over time calcium and magnesium can still cause scale buildup. To ensure the maximum efficiency and longevity of your Crown Royal Stove, water treatment is crucial. Treating systems with Control Chemical will prevent corrosion and scale buildup. Calcium and magnesium are commonly found in many water supplies. These impurities cause layers of scale that not only decrease heat transfer efficiency but cause pitting on the interior water jacket. Over time constant pitting will result in leaks. Once Control Chemical is added it creates the necessary barrier needed to prevent the breakdown of metals. If Control Chemical is not used right when your stove was installed, the damage may already be done.
Control Chemical and Testing Required on all Crown Royal Stoves
All Crown Royal Stoves are required to be shipped with initial recommended gallon(s) of Control chemical. Crown Royal Stoves are backed with a 20 Year Limited Warranty. To retain warranty on Crown Royal Stoves it is required to use Control chemical and submit annual samples for testing. Failure to maintain treatment at recommended levels and annual water testing will result in a voided warranty. There are many different water supplies, so not all water will be treated equally. Initial treatment of water is the same but could change over time.
