Have you tried vinegar? If so, I would think it would need to soak on the deposit for quite some time to dissolve it.

Vinegar

I did tried vinegar not working,

This is what happened, I had the tan up and running for about 8 months, and took apart into pieces and let it sat for over three years now.
I just put all the pieces together and notice the scales on the glass.

The tank in up and running now I empty it to 3/4 and tried to get the scale out with no sucess

I think the salts that dried for many years and turn into scales like the stuff on the uerobracing.
