  • Remove the cell by loosening the unions to release.
  • Flush the cell using a garden hose and spray the nozzle attachment to remove or loosen excessive debris.
  • Pour the cleaning solution, Salt Scapes Cell Cleaner into a clean, empty, ‘polyethylene’ vessel. Alternative, use a #10 expandable plug to cap the end of the cell. Pour the cell cleaner directly into the cell.
  • Immerse the cells into the solution, ensuring that there is adequate product to completely cover the entire blade surface.
