Q: How do I descale my H2O HD?

3. Secure and position the unit to ensure steam released is aimed away from the floor or surrounding objects and surfaces.
4. Plug the unit in, turn the unit ON by pressing the Power Switch ( O / I ) and allow the unit to produce steam until the descaler or vinegar/water solution is used up.
5. Repeat the above procedure as many times as necessary until a normal steam flow rate is achieved.
6. Fill the Water Tank with fresh water, switch the unit ON and release the steam through the system until the Water Tank is empty.
