Quick Powerhead Question

Is it safe to use a PH that was in my qt tank once upon a time with Coppersafe? I remember cleaning it well (bleach, rinsed about 20 times) now been sitting in the closet for a while

I want to use it for mixing fresh salt and water for my main tank.

I'd run it through for about 10 minutes in a container with flowing warm/hot water by putting it in the sink and letting the water flow into the container. You should be fine but I like to be extra careful especially with some of the accidents I've had. I haven't used bleach that often so I don't know how long it stays but IMO you should be ok.

Anyone else here have more experience with this? I'm pretty curious myself because I've got some stuff stored away....

with bleach just place it in a bucket and add some declorinator... it will get rid of the bacteria killing power of it. And water should get the rest of the bad parts of the bleach off.
