Actually, instructions that came with my Scout recommend running
a weak bleach solution through the filter prior to storage. But I
no longer have the instructions and a don't remember the exact
amount. I usually put a capful of bleach in 1/2 to 1 gallon of
water. Nothing too strong, but enough to inhibit bacterial growth.
And enough to keep me from drinking the first few cups of water
I pump immediately after storage.
