    Any ideas for soaking taller cartridges? What container do you soak them in?

    This is what I use to soak all 4 in at the same time.
    My filters are 25.5" tall so they all just fit.

    My filter is about 30 " tall. I bought one of those plastic storage bins with the cover that was about 32 " long. The filter fits in there no problem, and the cover is nice to keep kids out of it. Only thing is that it is heavy with all that water/cleaning solution in it, but works great.

    A Large Plastic Trash Can works pretty well. It does not have to be dedicated to this use either. Just put a liner in and add your solution/water. Close it up and give them a good soak.
