Re: calcium buildup in sanitation hoses

Vinegar is largely a waste of time. Muriatic acid might work but there are a lot of issues with that. As an alternative, pick up some RydLyme; Barnacle Buster or a similar product, run it through your lines and let it sit for a day or two and then thoroughly flush you system. In future, use something like Salt-Away, added to the final rinse of your head/waste lines after every use, and you won't have to deal with the matter again.

FWIW....
