How do you clean ACO heater? Mine is full of Ramshorns snails

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to clean my ACO heater that was in the tank with the leeches.  It have a lot of ramshorn snails in it. I have been scrubbing it with a nail brush and running water through it from different angles and shaking it to try to get the shells out. There are still shells in that that rattle when I shaking it.  I would love any advice on how to get the shells out before I soak it in peroxide. I don't want to void the warranty, but I am worried that the shells might contain leech eggs. 

I wrote to customer service at ACO, but they didn't have any experience with this problem.

Any suggestions would be very welcome.
