Warm water - Use warm water (40-60 degrees C) - we know from basic science that to speed up the rate of reaction add heat - you’ll clean faster and better with warm water.
Rinsing - Pre-rinse any tank with water prior to using chemical - the more soil and tartar that you can remove prior to adding chemical the faster you’ll clean.
Mix well - Mix your powders thoroughly - you’ll get better economy and more action out of a cleaning agent that is completely dissolved into solution.
Quantity - More chemical doesn’t mean more clean - the more chemical you use the less soluble your water is making it harder to rinse soils out of the tank. It is faster to exhaust a low dose and use another batch than it is to add chemical to the solution.
Sanitising - Keep a bucket with a sanitiser solution next to your fittings rack so that all your fittings can be sanitised straight after use.
Clean straight away - As soon as a tank, hose, fitting or line has been emptied is the best time to clean. Creating good cleaning habits in the cellar will enable you to keep on top of your hygiene.
Cool and Dry - Keep your hygiene products out of the heat and direct sunlight. Avoid damp environments as your products will lose their effectiveness rapidly.
Airtight - if possible, keep your chemicals sealed or in an airtight environment. Chemicals that have been exposed to air will tend to degrade in quality over time.
