Cleaning with vinegar

I am going to clean up my pumps, powerheads etc with some vinegar as part of routine maintenance. Should it be diluted, or just use it full strength? Thanks.

A gallon of vinegar is pretty cheap, once a month I put the powerheads in a small bucket of 50% vinegar and 40% water, they I let the run from morning til evening.
