    It's best to use a product called coil clean. AC repairmen use it to clean air conditioning coils and you can get it at most hardware stores (lowes, home depot, true value)

    1 removed the 2 brass elbows and used caustic soda for 15 mins, that core is made of stainless, the vegitation bubbled right out, followed by a 1500 psi jetwash, its as good as new

    the cores are made out of aluminum....thats why they are leaking in salt water apps.
