Prolonging Alconox Bath Life

Q. Is it possible to prolong the bath life of Alconox?

A. Yes. Start out with a stronger Alconox® Powdered Precision Cleaner concentration. If using a 1% solution, use a 2% or possibly even 3% solution. After 1.5 weeks, add another 1.5% Alconox to the bath, especially if there has been make-up water added because of drag-out and evaporation. This regimen should allow successful cleaning for up to 3 weeks. It is not recommended trying to run an Alconox detergent bath beyond 3 weeks, as these baths are prone to starting to grow microbes. Keep the bath covered when not in use and change out the bath every 3 weeks.
