I am a new inboard owner and thus unfamiliar with Ac and refridge inits. A guy told me to remove the raw water intake hose and the discharge hose and place them in a 5 gal bucket if 33% acid and run it like that. First I have to find the discharge hose and hope it can reach the intake hose together. The boat has three freezers, two fridge and 3 Ac unit and an ice maker all running off one intake, is this piss to do it like this? What about shutting all of the above if and trying it after two weeks to try to get some if it to die off or am I better to just start now? Any other advice is greatly appreciated. I am in se fla and the intake strainer wasn't checked in 4 months and think the growth is now in the piping, thanks!! John

Hi, I rigged up a five gallon bucket with a bilge pump, supply line with ball valve, return line with ball valve and use a 25% solution of muriatic acid and fresh water to cycle through the five a/c units on my vessel individually.  I remove the raw water lines form the ac unit and hook up the bucket's hoses to the input and output copper lines on the a/c units.  I then fill the 5 gal bucket approximately 1/2 to 3/4 full of the above solution, replace its vented lid and turn the bilge pump on to start circulating the solution.  Usually it only takes 20 to 30 minutes per a/c unit to get them all cleaned out.  I also use the system on the individual raw water supply lines once a year to ensure they aren't getting clogged as well.  I remove the supply lines from the manifold and use a longer hose to connect back to the circulating system.  Be really careful with the acid.  It should not be used full strength as it can burn your skin, overcome you with its fumes, and could possibly damage your eyes.  I wear yellow rubber gloves, goggles, and old clothes that I don't care anything about when I run the system.  You can get the materials you need at either Lowe's or Home Depot for less than $30.00.  The acid is about $8.00 a gallon.

Once you are done, flush the system with fresh water for about 30 minutes.  My slip neighbor uses my system and it works well for him as well.

Good luck! Cool

Short of using dynamite how do we unclog line? It is not possible to remove it from the boat.
