The Vinigar is good, but only a weak acid (it takes Ages) the Viacal is good Sh!t :)

do NOT use Bicarb though, it, like Lime scale, is alkaline and will only detract from the Acidic properties needed to remove the scale.

I`m glad it`s working well for you now though, and I somewhat expected it would come away in chunks and flakes, when I see them in the bottom of my Coffee cup, I know it`s time to do the Kettle :)

OK, straight vinegar tomorrow.

On another topic talking to some of you is like chasing butterflies, lol! I'm leaving notes all over the show :) ;)

When I lived in a colder climate; I was told by a repair guy to run a gallon of white vinegar through my machine every time I was finished with the loads I needed to do. That helped keep the pump from freezing in between wash days as the washer was in an unheated room.

By the time I read your post you seem to have everything in order. If it continues to happen I would suggest a plumber.
