We have just moved into our CC home. However, We have noticed that some of the drains and shower heads are pretty crusted up with water mineral deposits. Are these calcium, sulphur, lime? I tried soaking them in CLR but it didn't seem to help much. What's the local wisdom on this?

Any help or advice will be much appreciated. Thx.

Here is a suggestion. Install a Scale Blaster on the system. No plumbing changes needed. Breaks down scale. Costs about $350-400, can get it at Home Depot.

Thanks - I'll look into that. It sounds like a good investment. But how to remove the deposits that are already there? Wifey is putting on the heat!

It is supposed to slowly dissolve the scale.

Just did that! Fortunately, they weren't crusted in so bad that I couldn't get them out.
