I use a "Gunk" emulsifier/cleaning solvent mixture sprayed on with a garden
pressure sprayer, followed with a full force garden hose nozzle wash down.
Works great when done annually.  Your situition may take several apps.
Careful with high pressure washers on rubber boots, ect.  Eliminating all
leaks os the best long term solution.
