Sanitizing potable water system
« on: October 04, 2017, 01:46:11 PM »
Has anyone done any research or heard of anyone using hydrogen peroxide rather than bleach to sanitize the potable water system?

Why? Bleach is inexpensive and works well.
If it aint broke, don't fix it.

Go with bleach.  There is a reason municipal water supplies use chlorine and not peroxide.

It's not a dumb question if you do not know the answer.

Some folks are sensitive to bleach in their water. Maybe that's why they're looking at alternatives.

In any case, peroxide works. So does vinegar. The proportions are different, of course. I prefer chlorine myself, but if you want to use something different, check these sources:
