    You know I've been using Aldi washing powder for years very strong
    strips light coatings of gun blue and some cad, had a pungent bleachy chlorine smell to it but didn't leave a scent

    So they've just strongly perfumed it so soon some tests must follow

    For sure I a going to involve my club; here in Lyon I cannot fill trimix, and it's very hard also to find oxygen... so I need to use the equipment of my friends, who will help me

    I just wanted to have the opinion of other people, that's it :)

    I just pay my LDS to o2 clean my tanks. Since it's a blending shop, all my tanks must be o2 cleaned. I think it's 40 bucks or so at my favorite shop. Unless you're considering a fleet of tanks, it's probably both easier and cheaper to have your local dive shop clean it for you.
