If the stubborn build-up is still present, use a mild acid wash. Put on rubber gloves before mixing a 4:1 solution of water and muriatic acid in a bucket. Always add acid to the water, not the other way around.

Connect the salt cell to the cell stand and pour the muriatic acid solution into the unit. Let it soak for 15-20 minutes. Make sure you do not cover the cell electrical connections.

After the soak, rinse the cell again with a garden hose. The acid mixture should be stored for later use or disposed of in a safe manner and reinstall the cell.
