Customer Question
Is there more yearly...

Is there more yearly maintenance that needs done on Rennai than flushing with vinagar?

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Several months - I did the flush in July

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes, I do the flush by myself! The question is there more that I need to do besides the flush?
