  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.
