    Hello everyone. I have a aquapod that is empty that I need to get cleaned up. It has calcium on the back and side panels and I was wandering if there was anything that I could soak it in to make it come off easier. Would a vinegar/water solutions be ok for it and if so would that losen it up at all??
    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Yes vinegar and some water left in the tank for a day or so should soften or dissolve clacium deposits.

    Vinegar will work with some time, muriatic acid will work in seconds if you have some around. If you don't have some around though, you have to buy it by the gallon as far as I know and it's not worth having it sit around, so go with vinegar.
