hot water

I think my heater coil is plugged with scale on my oil fired boiler. Is there a way to clean it without removing it.

hot water

What makes you think this? Are you meaning the insides (where the water is) of the exchanger core or the outside surface (fire side) of the core?

If your referring to a tankless coil, they can be cleaned. but not something easy to do the first time you are trying it.

hot water

If it's the domestic hot water side I agree with been it's probably not an easy thing to do diy. You need to acid clean it by hooking up hoses and a pump and running that through then neutralize it and disconnect everything. What makes you think it's dirty?.
