    Thanks

    Yes. You don't need to fill the lungs, just like you don't fill your toilet when you disinfect it. Pour 100-150 ml into each lung and swish it around. Let it sit for 10 minutes, then rinse it out. I admit this is harder on the rEvo than any other RB because you can not easily swish it around. Which is why most people never disinfect their rEvo lungs. They just use fresh water to rinse.

    I suppose the trick is to ensure the sterilising fluid gets everywhere with just 500ml. Thanks for the response.

    Just to confirm, fridge not freezer, correct?

    Fridge. I live in the tropics. Lasted less than a year when not in the fridge. Now I keep them in the fridge in a snap lock bag and have not seen any deterioration.

    Thanks. Mine just went in. I lost a whole bottle a couple of years ago because it was just 'sitting'. Even tightly capped, moisture can get in and ruin the stuff given time.
