My first thought, even before reading any replies.

Folks who work on sanding the exterior of boats while standing in the water use either battery- or compressed air operated tools.

I imagine the same solution(s) would apply to one in your situation.

Didn't you know that everyone uses power tools in showers, or in basements that are flooded. It is called being on the short end of the Gene pool.

They actually make really good chemicals that will remove the mineral deposits, that you can get from Sam's Club, GFS, even Lowe's, Home Depot, Ace Hardware sells them.

Of course, if CLR, which is the best out there does not do it, I hear taking a hammer and tearing all the walls down to the studs works really good in these situations.

Looks like you have been sniffing way too many of them. All the chemicals that are for Mineral removal that is on the market work really well, you just need to follow the directions.

High Pressure Steam also works really well to remove the problem. Just make sure you have the door closed, vent fan off, and supply vent to the furnace closed, otherwise it does not work in getting rid of the problem.

Everyone knows that it takes four hours to do something like this. Just like everything in Chicago is only fifteen minutes away. That includes driving from the far NorthWest Suburbs to downtown, which is almost two hours away.

Never have I either, unless they are removing the gloss off the tile or sealer, to repaint, or reseal.

Usually air powered, so that they are not going to run out of juice.

A Lobotomy is the first thing that comes to mind.
