Vinegar?

Can I dip my water changer in vinegar between tanks to keep from spreading disease or possible diseases? Just curious what the best way is to use shared equip. I have a water changer to save time. I need something quick...

Also does anyone else have temp issues with their water changer? My water is to
Warm from the tap. Any suggestions to help with this? Someone recommended running the hose through a bucket of ice water... Surely I'm not the only one with this issue!???

Clean the sick tank last and then do a bleach soak for three mins and then do a flush (run water through) for a couple, give a good rinse! and air dry until next weekend.
