You can pull out the membrane, using pliers. The housing can be washed
with vinegar and water. The membrane can be soaked in vinegar water but
I only recommend that if you are in a real pickle. The membrane is
typically good for 3 to 5 years, so you *might* consider inserting a new
one in the housing once it is all clean, while you have it pulled apart.
Just trying to get some advice. Planning on doing some maintenance on
my unit, which has never been backflushed in the three years I've had
it. and since this unit doesn't have a backflush kit available, I was
wondering if it is possible to pull the membrane out of its housing
and clean it, say with acetic acid, and/or peroxide. Any suggestions?
Is the vineger wash valid for all types of membranes? CTA, TFC, PA
