Planning on running the powerheads in the sump with some vinegar for a while to clean things up a bit, what ratio do you guys use?

I use it straight out of the container. I pour a couple of gallons in a 5 gallon bucket use it and close it back up till next time. When it gets to dirty I throw it away and buy 2 more gallons.

I only got 3 gallons this morning, so I am running it about 2.5:1 water to vinegar right now, but the sump already looks 100% better. Should be showroom shiny by this afternoon with a little bit more elbow grease.

Like everyone said, it can vary depending on how dirty the equipment is that you are trying to clean. When I cleaned my 120g I used 10 gallons of vinegar and filled it up with water. It worked pretty good. You can always add more vinegar if the solution doesn't seem to be working.
