I know that there are many threads like this but this one is mine. A before picture will be posted later as the app keeps crashing when I try to upload. In our basement there is a raised portion which years ago had a shower, sink, and toilet.

Due to large salt deposits from the water softwner draining onto the floor. At the moment I'm asking advise on how to get the salt up. Im soaking it and scraping it which os working but slow going.

(Edit:nevermind, guess the picture did post)

Read up on "Efflorescence". I had it when I grouted my kitchen floor. I applied a product from Home Depot and that took it off.
Sound like diluted muratic acid might do the trick

I like to think so. Hopefully this winter the walls and floor will get tiled and wired so I can e-brew. In the next year or so will get a table set up and bigger sink.
