Truma Offers Decalcification Tablets

Thu Nov 10, 2016

147879726555883.gifElkhart, Ind. — The Truma AquaGo hybrid instant water heater now offers decalcification tablets developed to extend the product’s life and maintain performance.

The product is the only instant water heater in the industry that can be conveniently decalcified, says Gerhard Hundsberger, President and CEO of Truma.

“Minerals and other deposits, such as calcium, build up over time in all water heaters. Instant water heaters have narrow pipes throughout the heat exchanger which calcify and can disrupt the performance of the unit. However, the decalcification tablets solve this problem and are specifically designed to keep the AquaGo functioning just like the day it was purchased,” says Hundsberger.

The heater’s control panel indicates when decalcification is recommended, depending on the water hardness and the intensity of use. The tablets must be inserted into the removable and reusable filter cartridge. The control panel guides the user through the decalcification process with LED signals.

The new Truma AquaGo® decalcification tablets will be available through Truma’s Certified Dealer Partners and online at www.shop.truma.net in January 2017.
