What kind of materials is your misting system and the nozzles made out of?

PVC and the nozzles are bronze.
Expert:  SpecialistMichael replied 5 years ago.
Can you tell me the type of system and describe what it is used for?

Do the nozzles have the capability of being separated from the system?
Expert:  SpecialistMichael replied 5 years ago.
There is an over the counter product called CLR(calcium, lime and rust) available at any home improvement store and most grocery stores that is made of a very mildly acidic compound along with some surfactants to dissolve mineral and other build up and carry it away with a rinse.

A product often used for water mineralization removal in automotive detailing applications from paint, glass and metals is actually white vinegar(acetic acid) mixed anywhere from 1:1 to 1:5 with water, it can even be used straight. YOu could also try this before deciding to buy the CLR solution.

If you wanted to you could probably even take it a step further and combine a little bit of vinegar, with a drop or so of dish soap with some water and try to make a "homemade" lighter version of CLR before spending the money on it.
