So, our venturi assemblies become built up with calcium carbonate, and we clean them

Do any of you have a quick soak method ?

I've tried vinegar, but it's too slow and don't want my skimmer offline for a long period of time
I currently scrape it with a jewellers screwdriver every week, but it's not the best way and I don't want to remove any plastic

Thoughts tips et all appreciated

Lemon juice is more acidic than vinegar. And the concentrated ones should work much faster than the diluted vinegar from grocery shops. Don't have any experience but the logic works.
