So, I got lazy monitoring my pH over winter (new baby in the family had me distracted) and I got a bit of scale in my SWCG cell. It's a Zodiac Ei Expert Mid.

I removed the couplings from the pipes and unscrewed the end cap, but could only slide the cell out about an inch and half before the locating tab stops it going any further. I could not for the life of me see how it comes apart further. I persevered, and by chemical and physical means (lucky I have small wrist to fit inside the outlet to scrape with an ice-cream stick) I got it clean, but it would have been a whole lot easier if I could have disassembled the unit.
