Merry x-mas and a happy new year to all....

I am looking for a bit of advice for cleaning the steal components of my regs'.
The first stage, and the steal joins on all hoses have developed a white scale like corrosion. I have not been able to use my gear for two years and it has developed in this time. Even though everything was very thoroughly cleaned in fresh water before being stored in a clean, dry environment. I have one day to clean everything before it goes back into storage for another two years :waterwork . So time is off the essence.

If anyone has any advice please help me. I fear what my prescious regs will look like in another two years.

white vinigar and a toothbrush. make sure to rince it with clean water after. works for me.
:) thanks for the reply Amphibious, it confirmed my initial thoughts.

Enjoy the Blue
