Death by Clorox

Certainly sounds more ominous than, "I cleaned a bunch of biological fouling off my fresh-water tank's filter by immersing it in a solution of Clorox & water".

During the effort chronicled in my last post, I totally forgot about checking the filter. I did that today, and sure enough it was partially clogged with bugs/microbes.

Everthing's clean now.

As in the past, a weak solution of Clorox & water will be run through the system before the start of next season's warm-weather camping. But I'm still surprised at what can accumulate on the strainer over the course of one season

  1. Filter? Strainer? What kind of weird trailer do you have? We don't need no stinking filters. We like bugs.
