Maybe rinse it with distiller water until you get a zero reading for RO out of the bucket?

Purewaterclu.com. Maybe a couple months old. Ran maybe 150gal through it. Have it running again though. See if it gets any better. Thoughts on what i should use to clean the bucket?

like Alyxx said, some fresh distilled water. I have 2 buckets specifically for my tanks, nothing else, to make sure nothing contaminates.

These are exactly the buckets I use. I also poured one gallon at a time in and naked two side of the bucket so I know how much water I've pulled out of my tank as well. I use the same two buckets for removing and adding water to my tanks.
