I think it depends on the filter media type....When I wash my filter socks I always use bleach or else they dont clean up.....most sponges and filter media arent made for use over and over again.......the company makes more money that way....so I dont think I would try it.....it would probably eat it away.

Yes use Bleach on all filter socks and foam pads/ sponges ect, wash good and let dry..Simply rinsing will not remove all the detritus..for your equipment i assume you mean pumps ect, use viniger it will remove calcium deposites from impellers,and coraline from any surface, do this every other month if you can.it will save your pumps in the longrun and help them run smoother.
