Help Cleaning My Old Reservoir?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 


I took this reservoir out of service to replace it with a Swiftech MCRES MICRO2 and I would like to reuse this reservoir for sometime else, problem is, how do I clean it?

Don't know how it got all that yucky though.

Distilled water with 10% vinegar, cap it all off and shake like a mad man and rinse a few times, should be good as new.

What waqasr said. And avoid using alcohol as it will crack the res (assuming it's acrylic).

Some guy over at XtremeSystems recommended me to use toilet bowl cleaner, pretty sure that it'll get most of the gunk out.
