Default chlorine as a disinfectant agent for cleaning hydroponic setups?

Hello Ron. I am from Honduras and practice Hydroponics as a hobby but have plans to develop a commercial level unit. I do
not have any support in Honduras. I learned about hydroponics on an old 1938 book that I found at my father's house. It is
great pleasure to know about your job, I would like to know if I can join you from Honduras. Honduras has a great potential
for hydroponics and I believe that having people like you in the web will be of big help in the commercial growing and selling of hydroponics in Honduras and Central America. Congratulations and keep up the good job.

I would like to know about using chlorine as a disinfectant agent. is there any potential problem after using it to clean the system and the growing media?

Best regards, Cesar Ruiz San

Hi Cesar You can use chlorine or bleach to disinfect at a ten percent mix with water. For my large systems I plug up the intake pipe then fill the cups full with water and then pour a little full strength bleach in each cup and let it sit overnight to loosen up any slime.
