How to Remove Limescale from Taps and Pipes in 5 Easy Steps
Matt Besley on 21-10-2016
LImescale can be pretty unsightly, and can be very difficult to remove without the right technique.
Follow this simple 5 step process on how to remove limescale from taps and pipework:
WEAR GOGGLES AND GLOVES FOR THIS PROCEDURE
1 - Using a wet wrung-out cloth, wet the limescale area on the tap or pipe
2 - Using Windmill Warrior in a 1L bottle with the direction spout, apply neat to the affected area. Take care not to allow neat Warrior to contact the floor or tiles. Acid disolves limescale, Windmill Warrior is a sulphamic acid – which makes it an excellent limescale cleaner and is also safe for use around pools as it does not react dangerously with chorine like other acids.
4 - Repeat as necessary to remove all the limescale. Acid used on limescale is neutralised as it dissolves the limescale, so after a few minutes of contact time, the acid becomes inactive. If you have a lot of limescale build-up, you may need to repeat the acid several times to remove it.
5 - Rinse with plain tap water.
