    What if your strainer does not hold a gallon? Can you leave the lid off the strainer and continue to pour until strainer is empty? Do you run the A/C unit until no liquid comes out the discharge thru hull?

    Yes you can, but I don't run it through my AC unit. I run it through the sump pump that the condensation dumps in to. That is what gets all gunked up. The bromine tabs I hear work well for the AC unit itself.

    Bromine tablets would not be concentrated just what ever dissolved in the strainer and passes thru the system and out or I'm I missing something.

    I guess I am missing something here too. You said you put Pine Sol in the strainer and close the thru hull. When you run the A/C does the Pine sol not go through the A/C unit itself and out the discharge?

    Not th he raw water strainer. I use pine sol in the shower sump strainer and down all the drains and in the drip tray to the ac unit.
