I have used bleach before i heard its not the best thing to use for brewing. I saw this ecolab stuff at work and thought this may work better.

Search this forum for 'quaternary'. You may decide against using it.

Yes, quats are excellent sanitizers.

Just be sure to follow the "no rinse" instructions on the bottle.

I use bleach to sanitize all my equipment except for my kegs (I use iodophor for them), and I've never had a problem.

Bleach works, but it's painful to use; boiling up rinse water sucks. Quats are more effective than bleach against gram-positive bacteria, too.

You might consider going to the pharmacy and getting some iodine.
