Don't boil spray bars!

Unless you want a banana spray bar haha.. it's actually kind of better in a way.. it sprays in all different directions now..

It was just a quick bath, I've done it with ac tubes.. this was a sunsun spray bar, not made with nasa grade material or anything..

Smooth move but if you can form it like one of those S shaped track light bars that would be cool. The spray would come out to the middle of the tank. And thanks for being the tester because that's something I would do.

Another problem with boiling is your leaching out all the chemicals from the plastic..

It's a banana shape now and it does throw the spray in a rainbow pattern rather than straight forward now if that makes sense?? It's totally ok with me... getting those ferts all over!

Careful, those chemicals might leech into the pot and then back into food when you cook it killing everything that eats that food. You might have to replace the pot.

Nope, it's contaminated forever. Send it to me and I will dispose of it properly
