[Histonet] calcium buildup

Hi Molinari

I used microbiology long cotton wool swabs. If they are short extend them by burning the plastic ends and joining them while they are hot. Make sure the join is straight. Unscrew the nozzles from the machine and push the swabs in and out to clean and open the holes. If the blockage is hard u may use any small sharp metal pins to unblock the holes. Good luck.

Hi, Does anyone know of a way to remove calcium buildup on the wash nozzles in the water reservoirs. I have the Tissue-Tek DRS 2000.
Thank you.
