Lime in supply lines

Hi guys and gals,
I have lime in my water supply lines to toilet, bathtub, and washing machine cold water only. I know installing a filter will remove future lime deposits but how do I get rid of what has allready built up? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards Jess

I don't know of anything safe to use to dissolve lime, calcium, etc. buildup inside water supply lines.
Drain lines, yes. Supply lines, no.
You may have to replace them if they are too clogged. Sorry.
Good Luck!

I didn't have to replace my water supplies to toilet and bathtub. A friend and I cut the main supply line and blew compressed air thru the lines at a little over 100psi. Then on a tip site found a safe alternate to lime away or lime out. Mix 1/2 cup white vinegar and 1/2 cup baking soda, pour in line and back flush. Works well on drains and water spots and or soap scum. Thanks for the help old guy. The Lord blesses us in many ways.
