Locline - an observation

Recently purchased some brand new locline, 3/4".
had it used for about 2-3months on a system before I removed it.

One piece was bend to the closest radius, the other was left straight - both went into a bucklet with a 10% muriatic acid solution for cleaning.

when removed 15minutes later the bent one had every single socket cracked and was essentially unusable - the straight one remained intact.

Curious how I am, I bent the straight one and put it back into the solution.
5 minutes later - cracked.

So watch out when cleaning your loclines!

Use vinegar....no cracking issues with it. Love muriatic acid for cleaning WC containers.

Yep, vinegar works and doesn't damage the plastic.

Seachem suggest using Acid Buffer to clean WC containers - I haven't tried that yet but I'm going to next time we de-scale the saltwater vat.

Bleach won't crack it, but will turn it to a "lovely" slate gray color, just FYI.
