Thank you for this suggestion, Kate. I was putting hydrogen peroxide in the tank filling it and flushing it through when I finished but didn't know it this was accomplishing anything. The water sitting in the tube is what concerned me. Thank you for your input, Kate. Keep safe ! Toni

Toni…I am just not sure what would be the better MAC killer but the hydrogen peroxide also sounds like a good bet. You stay safe too! Kate

@toni1132 I've been thinking more about the water pik and killing the MAC. Perhaps running saltwater through at the end and allowing it to sit in the plastic tubing would kill any potential MAC.?? I am attaching research that indicates that MAC cannot live in a saline solution of 7% or greater. (check the chart) I think I will start doing this. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4850692/ I was never sure if colloidal silver would kill it but feel good about the saltwater.
