  • Empty the bleach solution, rinse well, and then fill with clear water (no bleach) 
  • Allow the pump or aerator to circulate the clear water for 5 minutes 
  • Empty and rinse once more to ensure that all bleach is rinsed from bowl
  • Allow up to 48 hours for drying prior to adding new waterto make sure all active ingredients in the cleaning detergents to be halted before replanting.


Or without bleach:
