I've never dealt with a lime coated piece.
The pot was in the tank for about 24 hours. Some pieces of the lime was starting to lift off. It would have taken a very long time for it all to have came loose.

I would like to see the inside of your finished kettle.
I tried CLR. It worked for about 10 minutes then quit being effective. My guess is there was enough lime there to neutralize the chemicals. Probably would have taken about 15 bottles at $5 each.

Iíll get a pic of the inside up later today
