I've done the head hoses on two boats now. If they don't stink, I'd take it off, beat it on the dock, dump out the calcium deposits and put it back on. If the hoses were getting a little stinky, I'd just replace them. Just finished doing that job on our current boat last month. Having a blow dryer or a heat gun to warm up the ends of the hoses made the job a lot easier.
