Hey guys, putting a heater into service, the whole heater is new except for the heat exchanger.
I was thinking about cleaning the heat exchanger with something like vinegar or lime-away/CLR???
Basically noticed a little scale buildup when I pulled the drain plugs. I just want to make sure it is clean and that I don't have to mess with it much for at least a few years outside of winterizing and cleaning it up in spring.
I mean, I *can* take the heat exchanger apart and clean it out that way, but then I would be better off putting in new header seals... I figure cleaning it fully assembled would not only be easier, but potentially quicker overall.
Any suggestions on the best cleaning method?
I am in no rush to get it done overnight, so I have no problem with filling it with a cleaning solution and letting it sit for a few days.
It is a Jandy/Laars LG250P (converting it to NG) for reference.
