    I'd just run the vinegar through straight. Screw a solution. Just buy a big jug of it and
    recirc with your pump. You may not have a pump, and if so, you could just funnel it in and
    drain into a bucket...

    No you won't need anything extra. The pot will barely hang over the edge, but it won't matter

    Ok, I've done some a lot of searching and reading, but I want to ask a few final questions
    before using my CFC for the first time.A little background...I had a 50' IC of 1/2" tubing that
    I converted t...
