Re: calcium buildup in sanitation hoses

Vinigar will do nothing to calcium buildups.
Its a silly old sailors wives tale. Take a chunch of calcium out of the hose and put in it vinigar for a day/week/month/10 years and you will see it the same.

When you put on new hoses make sure you pump out all the fluid and then do 10 to 20 fast pumps that will pump air into the hose.
