    3 years since I completed CH overhaul. The colour of solution is very clear and less rust came out than after the first extraction (6 months after the cleanse) but about the same amount than a year ago. I can only think the rust particles are coming from the rads, that is, tiny loose flakes following the initial Fernox FX3 cleanse 3 years ago. The FE tank is spotless.

    Fernox MB1 inhibitor currently in system, I top up and extra 0.25 litre of the same stuff each year.
