Lava Rocks : Cleaning
    #3880132 - 03/06/05 11:29 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

About to put my PmP together and begin getting it ready for the casings and cakes to come :smirk:

But I can't find out whether or not to clean these damn rocks....Should I clean them with alcohol? Putting h202 in the chamber, but I figure that I should rinse them or something and don't want to waste to much time, Is it alright if I just rinse them or should I be a bit more Meticulous :smirk:

tnks guys

why bother? if fish can swim above them and not become contaminated, it's likely mushrooms can survive whatever's on em. rinsing wouldn't hurt, i imagine. i think the h202 idea is probly enough, however. i've read elsewhere about h202's cleaning skills. good luck.

WHoA, Glad I cleaned them...Well rinsed anyways...

The dusk that was on them turned into Dirt...That dirt would have probably gotten into my airstones and clogged them :thumbdown:
..I've had perlite do that b4 and it Sucks....big pain to clean..
Well, now i'm about to drill the holes into the sides for the tube....Probably going to put silicone around the holes to make sure it's air tight:smirk:

Going to ck out magash's PmP thread first Just to make sure that I've got it down pat hahaha
