EASY.  Close the Through hull.  Use a manual bilge pump/wet and dry vacuum cleaner and empty the pipe.


Then fill the pipe with household white vinegar.. let stand 24 hours and reopen the through hull.

Watch all the scum flow out.

Good luck,

Cear amelians,
what is the best tool / method to clean the WHOLE pipe that goes from the sea water filter all the way down to the sea water intake in the hull (while boat is in water)?

Thanks for your advice,
Alex
