Re: Smelly air-con


Just a quick update on my post #24.....

Tried the kettle - 3kw fast boil - it produced enough steam to power a steam train!!! Aircon couldn't cope with the dehumidifying load and after 10 mins I bottled out fearing the car would turn into a sauna!!

The lesson is don't just stick a kettle in without checking that the volume of steam can be coped with.

So I am back to the steamer base for another 20/30 mins of treatment.

Whilst the kettle was producing clouds of steam I did spray some antibacterial Dettox into the flow of steam into the recirculation system.

We shall see if the all above finally clears the whiff - (which is much reduced since I started the project)

Mrs Nibor's nose will no doubt pick up any dubious fragrances when we next go for a spin!!
