I'm all ears as well

but a few conditions:
must NOT 'eat' at copper or brass (not after an etching soln)
must do more than kill algae, it has to remove the residue as well

please do not post your thoughts or loopy ideas
post what you have actual experience with, and how well - or not - it works

from my experience:
bleach (sodium hypo) is bad
acetic acid (vinegar) is bad
Simple Green is absorbed into the tubing, loosens everything - but won't remove it (scrubbing is needed)
- then it takes about 10 days and many flushings to wash out

I'm looking at looong bottle brushes (13' loop with LOTS of fittings), plus boiling water
