Default Covaris Maintainance

Hello All, the covaris S2 maintenance schedule says I should use 10% bleach for a monthly rinse, can I use a HazTab soultion or household bleach? or should I make up a NaOCL solution?

Default Covaris bleaching

A simple apx 10% solution of a household bleach like Clorox will be fine. No need to mix up NaOCl from scratch, but if you do, remember that Clorox is already a 6% (roughly) solution of NaOCl. You are looking for a relatively mild solution.

After running the bleach solution to retard algae, rinse the system with clean water a couple of times, and keep in mind that once diluted, bleach has a shelf life, so it's probably best to mix new each time.

I hope this answers your question.
