Always rotate the bleach every three months or so. Magic marker the bought date on the bottle.Edge said:Thank you very much. This information should be spread widely.

What do you think kills the G & C in public water supplies?M1Rifleman said:Me thinks that Clorox(bleach), will kill bacteria and viruses, but... in order to get the nasty Giardia and Cryptosporidia cysts(spores, whatever) the bleach would be so strong you'd have to boil it anyway. Filtration is effective provided the pores are small enough and I think boiling is also effective. Others (and I know some poster who specialize in water treatment) may want to chime in.
