Replace zincs after treatment. It will eat them. The pump and use of 5 gal bucket allows solution to circulate and thoroughly clean an old system. Using the engine pump seems like a waste of the acid. Did not try that way. We disconnected the water into exhaust fitting and the main engine inlet hose. This creates a closed loop and circulated 5 gals of mix for over an hour and then allowed to sit for a few hours. Changed out the mix with fresh and ran it for awhile until it came out clean. Very easy! Then installed new zincs and impellers. HTH
