Phosphoric acid is one of the main ingredients in some soda pop (albeit, at a much lower concentration). It's a pretty innocuous mild acid. One of its main advantages is that, in addition to dissolving "boiler scale", it will also dissolve rust and some other metal oxides without attacking the base metal much, if at all.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
