In the end, I didn't need the heat ... but I found out my

Do you guys clean these with solvents? Which ones?
Or do you disassemble and clean with brushes?
I've never had one so crusty I needed atomic weapons to clean it, no.
Simple cleaning supplies intended for the job are much safer and
effective. I'd rather not risk my lungs for mundane chores like that.
That wasn't the point, though. You found a hammer and now everything
looks like a nail. The problem is that it's a dangerous hammer and
you don't even seem to treat it with the respect it deserves. Not a
good thing to advocate to others.
In a way, that's true and not true.
Of course, I've been using the same acid for years in the
pool (how else do you think I balanced the pH?) ... so it's
really not a *new* toy, per se.
It's just the same old toy, with new uses!
Many thanks to Oren, mostly, for suggesting acid in the first
place (for the rust-colored cootie stains in the toilet).
Let me tell you, from experience, NOTHING suggested in that
long toilet thread worked anywhere nearly as well as the
acid did. So, I'm a believer. And, the best news was I had
the acid all along, so I didn't have to buy anything else.
