Kent, I was just speaking with Richard yesterday and he suggested to mix the chemicals with the pink, potable antifreeze meant for water systems to keep the membranes from freezing.

I don't remember who it was, but someone on this forum recommended the pink environmentally friendly engine coolant that is also used to winterized recreational vehicles.

Bill, Thanks for the info. I do not to use something caustic if I can help it. Is there any alternative, something not caustic ? I have to pickle it as it will be below freezing here soon and I need to pump the water out and winterize the plumbing including the membranes.

Pat,


4 pound package for less than $20: http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/281001169092?lpid=82

There are a number of us that do not recommend using Sodium Metabisulfite because it is very caustic.

The last time I checked the Dessalator website I believe that they were recommending rinsing with fresh water unless you were going to be absent for 6 months.

Hope this helps.

Richard, I' am not looking for a site to tell me how to pickle, but for a good source of chemicals to pickle. Someone not long ago mentioned somewhere that membranes and chemicals could be purchased at a reasonable price. Good to see you at the boat show. Pat

Pat Google pickle water makers or Little wonder and you'll find how to pickle and winterize.

I could not access the old messages on this new site format. I remember someone posted a good and reasonable source to buy chemicals to pickle the membranes, Could someone remind me of the name of source in the U.S. I too, as others have posted, would be willing to contribute towards the development of a better website for this group.
