I believe there are 2 discussions about pickling one is for the winter,  and one is general pickling.

 

After the sodium meta=whatever ate up my end caps- I stopped pickling it, I just run fresh water through it every few weeks when not in use. It has been fine for about 6 years. It is important to replace the prefilters as they do develop some growth in them.

Sodium metabisulfite (SMBS) is commonly used for removal of free chlorine and as a biostatic. Other chemical reducing agents exist (e.g., sulfur dioxide), but they are not as cost-effective as SMBS.
