This is for cleaning - I still don't understand how the inside of your pipe is nasty looking, the above treatment to my aluminium or copper tube leaves the inside with a mirror smooth finish - what sort of pipe is it?

"mucky" isn't the same as "scratched" or "bumpy" - try cleaning it as I suggested.
