Picked up the fittings to plumb in a pump, on my KA-2 boiler DHW coil, for my deliming set up. Now just need to hunt down a small pump.
A question for those wiser than me. When I do the deliming do I need to shut the boiler down and have cooll water in the boiler? Or can I do it at full temp?
Thanks!

The acid will do a better job with the heat. An aquarium pump may work if you can couple it.

I was thinking of one of the power drill powered pumps. Saw it at HD for $10.

I did look at the links. Thanks! Just wasn't sure about whether to do it hot or cold.
