I am purchasing Mr. Steam's MS150E Generator and have been getting mixed information from different sales people.  Is an Auto Flush system necessary???  Will it enhance the steam?  What benefit does it have?  I would appreciate any information you can provide me as to add or not...   Any information you have about this would be helpful.

Hi Meri, the need for an auto drain is somewhere between necessary and a good idea. There is no down side. Your steam generator produces distilled water in the form of steam. Consequently, the mineral and lime deposits present in the water remain in the tank and will eventually degrade the function of the unit. All Mr. Steam generators come with a manual drain valve so you can flush the unit at will to remove these deposits.

My opinion is that if your generator is located in a remote or hard to reach area or you are simply interested in a maintenance-free steam system, the AutoFlush, available on all Mr. Steam units, is a must-have item which will insure many years of trouble free operation.

Thank you for the information however, would you suggest or reccomend a betterway...  Is there something else that can be added to my system above and beyond what the auto flush system does?  Is thier a maintenance program that we should be following?

Is the a better system made that doesn't allow the lime and sedimintation in the system?

There is no better way to maintain a steam generator than the auto-flush. If you are concerned about the mineral deposits I would recommend that you add an in-line water filter on the water inlet side of the generator. This should prevent any large particles of mineral deposits from entering the system and the auto-flush will take care of the rest. Having added the above accessories will eliminate any need for a maintenance program. It will now be all automatic.

If you are considering a MrSteam steam bath generator, their AutoFlush maintenance draining system is a good idea.  It preserves your warranty, automatically drains your steam bath generator after each use and water tank remains mostly empty until the next use.   

Treating the steam bath generator water prior to entering the unit is the best way to reduce lime or scale inside any steam bath generator tank.  A water filter is recommended by every steam bath generator manufacturer as it helps to keep water feed systems clear from debris.  Conditioning the water prior to boiling helps to eliminate steam bath generator scale and can remove chlorine from the steam bath as well. 

Consider the Bathology line of steam bath generator water filters and steam bath generator water conditioning systems for such use.
