Removing Limescale tip !

This is a tip that I got recently from a Tap Manufacturer where a customer was trying to replace his Valve.

He had gotten his handle off but couldn’t remove the shroud (also known as locking nut / fixing nut / hood that covered the valve due to the buildup of limescale.

Removing Limescale Tip :

Soak problem area in a solution of lemon and water (equal proportions) for maximum of 30 minutes.

Rinse off solution completely then.

Repeat this process as often as required to remove the limescale – but always only to a maximum of 30 minutes and completely wash off solution in between)

If in doubt as to the finish of your tap, you should test on a tiny bit first where it won’t be seen.
