Barnacle Buster in Coolant Circuit - How?

I've read a number of threads recommending Barnacle Buster for cleaning the coolant curcuit (not raw water). PLEASE no comments on if BB is right or not, that's in other threads...

So assuming I'm using BB....

Would you drain and fill the curcuit with the mixture and run the engine (for the prescribed duration)?

Would you remove the thromostat?

Would you let it run through the hot water tank loop too?

Any positive contributing thoughts welcome.

Many thanks

I’d follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
