Cleaning Equipment Safeley

Recommended Posts

Any suggestions for getting my equipment clean? I recently took down my system (painful to say,) and I'm holding on to things for at least a while to make sure I can cope with not having a tank. I want to clean everything thoroughly and remember hearing vinegar is a good choice. Is that true and how diluted should it be? Any other suggestions? Thanks for any help!

get a jug of cleaning Vinegar from Walmart its cheap, put a bunch of it with water in buckets and let the equipment soak overnight, the next day all the coraline algae and everything else stuck to it will wipe right off.

Vinegar is great for most things. For more sensitive equipment I use RODI water. Usually for things like probes, cheaper pumps (jaebo's), etc. RODI takes a little while longer, but it is less harsh on some of the seals.
