1 - Fill solution tank with 4 gallons of clear water.
2 - Add 1 gallon of Rouster Chem concentrate. If tank is already prepared, check pH level with optional pH meter or paper strips to ensure it is between 2.0 and 5.0. Over time the solution does weaken. If the pH is higher than 6.0 it may not be effective. The pH can be lowered by adding Rouster Chem concentrate directly to the existing solution. The lower the number the more aggressive the descaling action.
3 - Blow air through mold or other water circulation lines or pipes to remove standing water. Attach pressure hose from Rouster Scout pump to "IN" line at mold (or other water circulation lines or pipes).
4 - Attach return hose to "OUT" line at mold (or other water circulation lines or pipes ). Return line has filter unit on it.
Pump will automatically pull solution from tank immediately after starting. If it does not pull solution the hose may be kinked or the tank may be almost empty.

 
DO NOT ALLOW PUMP TO RUN DRY - DO NOT ALLOW PUMP TO RUN DRY

Note: If reducers or couplers must be used, attach them to the Rouster Scout hose ends, not to the pump connections. If Rouster Scout pump connections must be replaced use only identical sized fittings and be careful not to exert excessive force or the pump and/or solution tank may be permanently damaged. This damage is NOT covered by our warranty.
5 - Start circulation by inserting electrical plug in a proper GFI outlet.
6 - Circulate water for proper time. If at room temperature, water must circulate for at least 20 minutes. If mold (or other device) has just been shut down, see chart below for proper time settings. A warm device will activate the cleaning solution faster than a cold device. DO NOT USE AT OVER 100 F.
7 - Stop circulation by removing electrical plug from outlet.
8 - Remove Rouster Scout connecting hoses from the mold or other water circulation lines or pipes.
9 - Blow a stream of air through the mold lines or other water circulation lines or pipes  until dry, to keep the lines from rusting.
10 - If mold (or other water circulation lines or pipes) will not be used immediately use proper rust preventive in water lines.
11 - Check and clean return line filter screen. This should be done every time the Rouster Scout is used as a clogged filter may cause damage to the pump unit. Any increased pressure requirement, or if the pump shuts off, may be an indication of a clogged filter.

If disposing of a tank of solution, add Rouster Chem Neutralizer (approximately 1 pound per 5 gallons solution) to bring the pH level to a "safe-disposal level" of between 5.0 and 9.5 with 7.0 being ideal.

NOTE: The cleaning solution works faster when it is warm. The total time for circulating the solution at varying temperatures is shown in the following table:

Temperature of mold             Cleaning time required
60 F                                        60 minutes
70 F                                        40 minutes
80 F                                        20 minutes
90 F                                        10 minutes
DO NOT USE AT TEMPERATURES ABOVE 100 F OR BELOW 40 F, OR SOLUTION BECOMES INEFFECTIVE, PUMP IMPELLER WILL SEIZE, AND FITTINGS MAY WARP, CRACK, AND LEAK. WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER THIS.

Our warranty covers all parts for 30 days from date of purchase.
