Oust room sanitizer

Seriously though, running carbon and the addition of a skimmer will take care of the smell. Also, a little kalk powder in the skimmer's collection cup can help reduce the odor of the skimmate as well.

After the Oust....

Go out and buy a dictionary and look up a few words I will start with...

Lewd, crude, tactless, bawdy, and thoughtless.

I find your humor to contain many of the above adjectives and I am still trying to figure out where on a family board something like that would be humorous. I think comments like these are best left for other venues.

My wife has complained about an "ocesn smell" from time to time, but not lately. From what I understand, those electrostatic air cleaners produce a bit of ozone, which is why people say that it makes a room smell fresh like fter a thunderstorm. Ozone is a powerful odor destroyer, they're expensive but if you have one already maybe you could put it in that room and see how it works.

I guess we weren't the only ones.


Good luck cleaning up the stink!
