buildup in poo hose

yet another poo thread, but i saw a neighbor beating the crap out of a length of sewage hose with a mallet, trying to get the calcareous deposits out. it reminded me of when i installed my holding tank - all the old hoses had this hard deposit in them and i recall reading that it's the dead shells from all the poisoned plankton. the old hoses had lost like 1/3 of their original diameter, and it's not something i want to clean out the way the neighbor did it. is there any way of preventing the buildup? if it is shells it would be alkali - has anyone tried running vinegar down there regularly?
