Hi
with this hot weather I was wondering what you are using to clean and disinfect water containers(pails, jugs, tanks etc.). and not have an affect on the dog.

Thanks
Robert

Hydrogen peroxide can be used for disinfecting. More powerful then chlorine and evaporates quicker. I've used it many times for water pumps doesn't harm plastic. Other then just cleaning them out with mild dish soap as needed, I've never had to disinfect buckets.

Ecolab Quat Sanitizer or some other iodine based sanitizer just like we use in the restaurant glass washers....very important to read directions and mix proper amount of water to product

I use Steramine Sanitizing Tablets, from the dish station at work.
Well, I carry my water tank into the kitchen and "ask" my dish team
to use steramine tabs :D Same with my on the truck dog dishes.

I keep Lysol in the barn, the concentrate kind. Diluted it makes a dandy disinfectant for anything from cuts to water & feed buckets. Only problem is, it's getting hard to find. Luckily our local mom & pop hardware store still carries it.

Somehow I don't see Ken as a Beiber fan. Set up straight Ken.

Go to your local home beer brewing supply store, get some Star San or equivilent. Just soak anything you want in the mixture for 30 seconds of contact, done. :) Just a thought, works great on my beer making stuff!

Ken, I was still in college at Texas A&M in 1960. They didn't allow bell bottoms on the the army uniforms. Only in the navy.

Chlorhexadine works great at different levels of concentration, from cleaning kennel floors to cleaning a dog's teeth. Bleach works really well, as does cavicide (kills EVERYTHING that could occur in a dental office! ). Make sure that any type of cleaner has time to work/set and that you also rinse really well after. Do not think that "if this small amount works, then more is better!" because it isn't!
