If I have lost acid from my battery should I have it replaced

If it was lost by evaporation it was just water that left, so add distilled water only. If it was lost by spillage then add a mix of 37-38% sulphuric acid with distilled water, to the correct level indicator.

You can get this mix from an autoparts store like Autozone. It can't be sent by post. If you make the mix yourself, then only ever add acid to water a bit at a time, NEVER add water to acid, it will spit. Wear good eye protection and rubber gloves as well.

My humidifier is spitting water plus steam. Kind of weird. Didnt do before. Level of water is ok, added 1 flat tablespoon of sea salt and 2 tabkespoons of vick oil. What's happening?

More than likely, mineral scale has built up inside the tank and the mist tubing.

To clean it, turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Empty any remaining solution that's in the tank and refill it with a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Plug the unit in and turn it ON. Allow it to run for 5 minutes, then turn unit OFF and allow it to soak for 30 minutes to and hour.
Then turn the unit back ON. If the water spitting has stopped, run the unit unit is half empty. Turn it OFF, unplug it and empty any of the remaining solution. Refill with Bottled Distilled Water and run it until it's empty. Doing so, will flush out any of the remaining solution and scale.

In the future, it is best to use Bottled Distilled Water, rather than tap water. As the Distilled Water does not contain any harmful minerals or chemicals.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My vaporizer has stopped making steam. It's only a couple months old. Help!

It probably has a calcium and mineral deposit buildup, that has clogged the unit. Especially, if you're using well water to fill the tank.

To solve this problem, empty the tank of any water that may still be in it and mix a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Fill the tank with the solution and let it sit for i hour. Then turn the unit ON and let it run, until it starts producing humidity. Once it does, wait 10 minutes and turn the unit OFF and empty any remaining solution from the tank. Refill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water and run the unit for 10 minutes. This will flush the system of the Vinegar and Water solution. It's best to empty the tank again and refill with Bottled Distilled Water and use the humidifier as you normally would. I would highly recommend using Bottled Distilled Water from now on. This will eliminate any future calcium and mineral buildup and having to flush the unit repeatedly.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. Please let me know.

Filled Watertank; water will not go open valve and go into mister area

It may be clogged with mineral scale. Empty the water that you now have in the tank and refill it with a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Let it soak for several hours and then turn the unit ON. If it starts working as it should. let it run another 5 minutes, turn it OF and empty the tank. Refill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water and allow it to run at least 45 minutes to flush the system. After that, if you do not detect any vinegar odor, you can continue to use the remaining Distilled water.

If the unit didn't work as it should have after several hours of soaking. Turn the unit OFF and let it soak overnight. If this solved the problem, I would recommend that you continue to use Bottled Distilled Water for normal operation, rather than tap water.

Hope this helped solve the problem

Battery has liquid on top

The battery is charging with trickle charger. The liquid could be just water from condensation from the recharging process. If the charging is too vigorous, then it can also be sulfuric acid, so rubber gloves are in order. Clean up liquid with gloves on and paper towels. Once dry carefully remove caps and check water level. refill battery with distilled water to top of cell. Check water level at least twice a year. Wear safety glasses too.

My iron smells bad and transfers the smell to clothing. I have had my iron for 10 years and love it, but my housekeeper left water in it.

Hey, You have a "Mildew" issue. Just like leaving clothes in the washer too long before putting them into the dryer. If you read your iron's manual, it is recommended to use "Distilled" water...not tap water. Tap water has impurities...Distilled water does not. Here's the fix...MAKE SURE YOU ARE HOME WHEN YOU DO THIS! Get distilled water (From Grocery Store) Mix 1/2 cup distilled water with 1/2 cup vinegar. Put this into your iron and leave it on. To help it along, push the "Steam" button frequently. You can do this several times...the acid in the vinegar will clean out the residue. Once this is done, fill the iron with water, add a couple of drops of lemon juice and you'll be good to go. I know this to be fact...just did it myself : )

Heat gets cold after on for little bit

Sounds like deposits have built up in your heater core. You can try one of those cooling sytem flush kits from the parts store. It will have to be an acidic type. Make sure you let the vehicle run long enough to reach normal operating temperature so that the thermostats all open and run it with the heater turned on. After you flush out the system, You should only use distilled water and antifreeze to refill your system. I dont care what anyone tells you City water and well water are bad! Distilled water is easy to find they have it at Walmart, Giant. and just about all big grocery stores. Its right by the drinking water. If only Distilled water is used in a cooling system for the life of it, Deposits should never even form.

My rowenta professional iron drips, how can I fix it?

Are you using distilled water to refill your iron? Distilled water can cause drips if used all the time. Refill with tap water and see if the drips stop.
