Annual Water Testing

Crown Royal Stoves are manufactured with 10 gauge 409 AL titanium enhanced Stainless Steel. Although this provides you with the best corrosion resistance possible, over time calcium and magnesium can still cause scale buildup.  To ensure the maximum efficiency and longevity of your Crown Royal Stove, water treatment is crucial. Treating systems with Control chemical will prevent corrosion and scale buildup. Calcium and magnesium are commonly found in many water supplies. These impurities cause layers of scale that not only decrease heat transfer efficiency but cause pitting on the interior water jacket. Over time constant pitting will result in leaks. Once Control chemical is added it creates the necessary barrier needed to prevent the breakdown of metals.

All Crown Royal Stoves are required to be shipped with initial recommended gallon(s) of Control chemical. Crown Royal Stoves are backed with a 20 Year Limited Warranty.
