Boy, just mention you dumped bleach in the water and the USCG will have a field day with you.
*Actually, disinfecting black water with bleach is a Coast Guard approved method, and is in use in several systems.* Those that place electrodes in the waste water actually dis-associtate sodium hypocloride (I think thats what is, but I'm not a chemist) from the sea water. It's a substance similar to chlorine.* Other units use bleach injection directly into the waste.** I'm guessing that the amount is so little as to not be a concern..........Arctic Traveller
