Having just spent the weekend bashing the heck out of the waste hose from the head
on our yacht to get rid of the built-up calcium scale (picture a 2m length of 1.5” i.d. hose, fully blocked up with scale; there was no way that muriatic acid or vinegar was going to dissolve that stuff away!!), it got me to thinking about my other water
The local drinking water
supply is very ‘hard’ so I am wondering if the lining of my water tanks
are becoming similarly encrusted.
Does anyone know of products out there that can be used to remove calcium scale from potable water systems? I am keen to try to get ahead of the problem on this (fortunately the water tanks
are several years newer than the waste hose) as the prospect of dismantling our under-sole tanks to tackle such a problem is not very pleasing to my mind
