Help please-used IBC containing aluminium hydroxychloride

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me if I clean an IBC that used to contain aluminium hydroxychloride (used in water treatment as a flocculant/coagulant) what would I have to do to make it safe to use as a grow out tank or if this is even possible!

Any help would be appreciated.

i could be wrong but i believe aluminium hydroxychloride is just aluminium and hydrochloric acid. that being the case with a good clean it should be safe. aluminium is not dangerous to fish nor are small doses of h. acid as it is sometimes used by hobbyists to lower ph in aquariums and always in swimming pools. im not 100% but it sounds safe enough with a rinse out ;)
