Whenever one finds themselves removing a zinc, its almost always a good idea to replace it entirely.

When flushing with Rydlyme I always remove zincs and
remove/replace impeller as recommended by Rydlyme.

Would you also take this time to replace the zincs? I am wondering if they will be eaten up by Rydlyme?

Dealing with calcium build up?

How do you remove the calcium build up in the raw water heat exchanger? I have heard from others that they use vinegar. Pros and cons?
