Descaling products like Rydlyme, Barnacle Buster, or Triton Marine Green (something like that) would maybe have some effect. Simple vinegar might be easy enough. The hose barb/water pressure idea works.

Some of the same tricks work for the AC's water pump lines, too.

Agree - Haven't been in that situation but I think I'd employ the wet/dry shop vac to "drain" the pan and then use the H2O2.

We always try to keep a couple qts of H2O2 around as it also works wonders on clothes, carpets, cushions, etc for red wine or blood spills/stains...
and lord knows we spill our wine every now and again

We add a cup of water with 2 tbl spoons of bleach each month here in FL. Better to keep it clear than have to clear it.

I tried spa chlorine crystals but that only made it smell like chlorine all the time.
