I have a ttex600 and the pipes are getting a bit soiled, is there a particular tool or method you would recommend for getting them clean?

thanks

There are a few brushes on the market designed for cleaning hoses.

I use a JBL Cleany for my hoses; one end is for 12mm and the other for 16mm internal diameter hosing.

I disconnect the hosing from the filter and spray bar/lily pipe/inlet/outlet, run hot tap water through it whilst pushing and pulling the brush through.
