Need advice. I purchased a used stored 125g bowed front tank. It came w/PVC piping with hang on back overflow box down to a trickle sump bio ball filter thing. (I gotta lot to learn still Embarassed ) QUESTION: should I buy all new PVC piping or can I safely clean it out w/vineger and/or bleach and water? I know nothing really about the history of this tank set up.

If the tank is usable the piping should be too.

I prefer bleach to vinegar as long as you get one with no detergent as it is easier to rinse and dechlorinator will clear up any lingering residual chlorine.
A pull trough pipe brush is a good investment (but don't buy it from an aquatic shop. Wink )
