that's why I use straight sections of tubing with taps or couplings to get at each straight section. I have tried numerous tines to use liquid cleaners with no success, yes they remove some of the surface contaminates but they don't remove the sulfides and imbedded hydrocarbons.I have seen laboratory cleaners that are basically many scrub brushes on a cord and are very flexible to get into hard to reach areas.From: Tom tomhawk412@...

The same build-up that takes place inside a Lieberg Condenser will, I suppose, build up in a traditional copper worm. What's the best method to clean the inside of a worm? I just flush mine with water immediately after use. Sometimes I pour some StarSan solution through it and then flush it with water. Should I be doing something else? There's no way to scrub the inside of a worm with a brush.
