A week ago i installed and tested my Katadyn
maker. All went well so I pickled it with Sodium Metabisulphite until I leave the marina and need to use it in a few weeks. I now find that the clear vinyl hoses I got from the hardware
have gone cloudy. The filter and filter housing which is also full of preservative is clear.
Am I right in assuming that the cloudiness is a reaction between the preservative and the hose ? I have read that some cleaners will cause hose to cloud up if it is soaked.
Is this very common and Is it a problem ?
Should i replace the hoses ?
Appreciate any information people have about this issue.
