How would you go about cleaning calcium build up off a metal bucket?

There are some limitations. First of all, the bucket is full of calcium build up in hard to reach places. I can fill it full of something, but most of the volume I can't reach so I probably can't scrub too well. Secondly, the only way I can drain the bucket is by washing it out with water so it fills up to the top and drains out of the "spill over" hose. I can also use a shop-vac to suck out anything.
I remember getting this stuff off the top of aquariums with paper towels soaked with vinegar. I've thought about filling this bucket with vinegar and letting it sit over night. Any other recommendations?
