To avoid the potential for rusting of the Tropic Heaters: do not use bleach or cleaners containing a high chlorine content. Do not use paper clips, safety pins, staples, coat hangers, etc., around the unit. Do not use steel wool or carbon steel brush to clean the unit. Use only soft cloth scouring pads -no abrasive cleaners. Keep the unit full of water at all times. Clean the tank every two weeks. Hard water can eventually cause rust because of salt deposits. If that is the case, clean the unit more frequently.

How is the Tropic Heater unit cleaned?

Clean the Tropic Heater unit at least every two weeks, using a low abrasive bathroom cleaner with a soft scouring pad. Stainless steel wool may be used, but not regular carbon steel wool. Use a low or no chlorine content cleaner and make sure the residue is thoroughly rinsed away with clean water.

For the exterior, use stainless steel polish and soft cloth only. Do not use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads as they can damage the finish of the unit.
