Ian - I know you said 'no problems with hoses or fittings', but I should point out that Hydrochloric acid (even diluted) can corrode even stainless steel. It is great for mineral deposits, and i don't think many head systems have metal exposed to the 'brown water', just be careful about spills. Vinegar is also acidic enough (barely) to work on most mineral deposits, and a lot gentler on metal. (OK, OK you're right, HCl makes things sparkle, just please make sure there's no loose fittings letting it trickle into your bilge....)
Also about the 'brown TP', (sorry but lunch is over) my cruising instructor gave us each a ziploc....
