I'm using Virkon powder after each filter clean.(every week on average)

Dosage 5g per 1000 gal as per various sites instructions..

wondering....... is this strong enough?

Hi Mick I dose at 15grams per 1000 gal but not as often as you around every month.

all good thanks Tony

Sally's garage is now cleared and the big barn. (almost) from the fire.
a new small shed is on the way and insurance is going through.

Good to see I'm dosing at per recommendations - Weekly.

Thanks Jim

is there a reason for this, rather than the weekly / after a filter clean.


Thanks

I always dose to this level and don't experience any problems. Since I fitted my drum I don't have to clean the filters as often if it was a weekly dose though I would dose 5-10 grams per 1000gals.
