1. Shovel / Rake/ Hoe (or whatever tools you use to clean the firebox)
2. Shop Vac
3. Wire Brush for tube cleaning (GX Only - GX10 
HERE and GX15/30 HERE)
4. Flexible Rod tube cleaning tool
(GX Series Only - available HERE)
Water Treatment (Available HERE or Click the Button Below)
6. Metal container for ashes
7. Door Seal Replacement Parts (if needed - Available HERE)

8. Door Seal Replacement Instructions (Found HERE)
9. Flat Head Screwdriver (if needed to remove old door seal)

10. Make sure your Chimney Cap is in place (If not, available HERE)

In case you missed it, our last newsletter had FULL INSTRUCTIONS for Summer Shutdown - those instructions can be seen at this link HERE:

Note that these instructions did not include an important annual maintenance step listed in the owners manual: Remove the chimney cap and clean out the chimney with a wire brush. This step can be accomplished in the fall if preferred, but is a more logical part of the Summer Shutdown procedures.

Hawken Care Tip:

Water Treatment - Any Questions?
We Have Answers!

Here are four of the 17 most commonly asked questions about proper Water Treatment for your furnace:

1. Why should I use Water Treatment?
2. How much should I use?
3. What happens if I don't use Water Treatment?
4. Why should I submit a water sample for FREE testing?

Note that ALL 17 questions are answered in the NEW Hawken Website that will be launched soon. (More on that later, but stay tuned for more details to come shortly - It is a very exciting tool for Hawken outdoor furnace owners.)

Today, we will focus on Question #2: How much water treatment should I use in my outdoor boiler?

First, let's be clear: If you are not using water treatment properly,
now is the time to start. You do not want a furnace sitting idle over the summer with water in it that is not properly treated. It is never too late to start protecting your investment.

A furnace without water treatment is like a car engine without oil - it is only a matter of time and your furnace walls will be paper-thin and start to leak, and at that point, you will not be able to save the furnace.

Remember, our goal here at Hawken is to help you protect your investment! Proper water treatment is the single most important step you need to take to protect your furnace.

So How MUCH Water Treatment should you use? The answer is complicated - We cannot know what your water quality is in every location of the country! 
AND THIS IS WHY THE FREE WATER TESTING IS SO IMPORTANT!!! Since water qualities are so different throughout the country, you will just never know if your furnace is properly protected without the FREE water analysis provided by the Hawken Lab!

BUT, our chemists have given some guidelines; for example, when flushing a furnace completely and staring with fresh water, the instructions are to add ONE gallon of water treatment per 200 gallons of water. An HE-2100 has 368 gallons, for example, so in that case you would just add TWO gallons of water treatment. An HE-1100 holds 150 gallons, so we would recommend just adding the full one gallon of water treatment when filling an HE-1100 with fresh water.

When a furnace has been in operation, and received a GOOD water test result in the last 12 months, we recommend adding one-half gallon to an HE-1100 or GX10/15, and one full gallon to an HE-2100 or GX30. Then allow the water to circulate for 24 hours, and then send in a water sample to the lab for FREE water testing.

Water qualities are different in every location. So we provide these guidelines, and the FREE water analysis and testing services so you can have the PEACE OF MIND knowing that your furnace is properly protected!

But this much is clear: You MUST have the proper Hawken Certified Liquid Armor Water Treatment in your furnace. We at Hawken want your furnace to last for DECADES and save you thousands of dollars each year, but we cannot achieve this goal if you do not properly protect your investment.

Hawken (Lawyer) Jokes of The Month!

Q: Why don't sharks attack Lawyers?
A: Professional courtesy

Q: What's the definition of mixed emotions?
A: Watching your attorney drive over a cliff in your new car.

Q: What do you have if three lawyers are buried up to their necks in sand?
A: Not enough sand.

A man died and was taken to his place of eternal torment by the Devil. As he passed raging fire pits and shrieking demons, he saw a man he recognized as a lawyer with a beautiful woman.

"That's unfair!" he cried. "I have to suffer for all eternity, while the lawyer gets to spend it with a beautiful woman."

"Shut up," screeched the Devil. "Who are you to question that woman's punishment?"

A fundraiser for a local charity noticed that the town's most successful lawyer hadn't made a donation yet. The fundraiser called the lawyer and said, "Sir, our research shows that out of a yearly income of at least three hundred thousand dollars, you didn't give a dime to charity. Wouldn't you like to give back to the community?"

The lawyer thought it over and replied, "First, did your research also show my mother is dying and has massive medical bills? Or that my sister is confined to a wheelchair? Or that my brother died in a traffic accident, leaving his three children penniless?"

The humiliated fundraiser said simply, "No, sir, I had no idea."

"So if I don't give any money to them," the lawyer said, "why should I give any money to you?"
