I read somewhere that the burner coil can become crystallized to the point that it becomes thermally inefficient/insulated. How would one 'clean' the coil? Is diesel better?? Is there a kero additive? Thanks!!

just descale it like any other HX unit or propane...

best to get a kero heater with a stainless steel coil..
thats what EL DIABLO and STEAMWAY use...
but SS coils are almost impossible to get as these kero heaters are sold for pressure washer guys...

gotta be careful descaling those KERO pressure washer heaters....

they are made for pressure washers that have huge nossels that specs of rust can pass through
not so with our little 01 jets....
i have ntools heaters but they all have the same schelue 80 steel coil unless they are specially made like STEAMWAY and EL DIABLO

they will rust if you run too much acid rinse through them and let them set for too long....

best to run a little alcaline rinse to coat the inside
to prevent rust....
