Would it be a bad idea to circulate CLR through my rig via the pumps?

Are you getting a calcium build up?

If you use the proper concentration, I dunno if there is an issue.

Ya I was thinking about that but then pussed out cause I didnt want to take the chance with the pumps and my silicone tubing. I was getting a bit of buildup from 5.2 buffer after quite a few brews and was starting to show.


The pumps werent looking bad on the inside, I just wanted to transfer without having to lift anything. Just being lazy was all

Looks good now though. I dont think my copper and SS have looked this good since it they were new

I can't see how CLR would be any different than star san, and I pump star san through my rig to sanitize everything.
