    Had to do some pipe rerouting at my well for the geothermal units. The pipes that I taken out had a build up appear to be dirt or clay about 3/32 of inch thick.This is on a commercial building with 42 tons of a air/heat system.How would I go about cleaning the pipes and exchanger through out the entire system. I have connected to it two 16 tons units plus a 6 tons and a 5 tons unit. I would think with this kind of build up that my efficient has gone down hill. These unit have been in service for about 7 years.

    A commercial grade ice machine descaler seems to be the product of choice by those servicing this condition.

    I'm not sure ice machine descaler is appropriate for dirt build up but you do need to flush the entire loop. I would check with a local water treatment company for a product to do the job.
