Default Spinach Seed Germination

My first post.
I am having problems germinating spinach seeds. I have a 1800 sq. ft. NFT commercial lettuce operation and am trying to grow spinach along with the lettuce. I have very poor germination rates with the spinach when the lettuce does great.

I mostly have pre-sprout seed in paper towels in cool temperatures.

I read somewhere on line about soaking the spinach seed in a dilute bleach solution.

Just wondering if anyone has had success with spinach seed germination?

The diluted bleach water is intended to kill any microorganisms, bacteria, and/or fungal spores that may be on the seeds themselves that could cause disease to the plant once it sprouts. I like to use H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) to do this myself. It's easier to rinse off from the seeds before you sprout them. You don't want the seeds to sprout in bleach water or H2O2 or it will kill the roots.
