I'm getting ready to set up a 125 gallon tank, and I just gathered a big pile of natural rocks. Gotta love nature's inventory!

Most rocks have a bit of algae, organic stuff on them, but I don't like the idea of bleaching rocks. Boiling is slow, and some of these rocks are pretty darn big. So…

…what about using a pressure washer?! Has anyone tried this? I've used one on my brick deck, any reason why it wouldn't work for cleaning rocks for an aquarium setup?

alot of people use that method just don't use any chemicals just use the pressure from the power washer and you should be good.

I use mine every so often to clean my lace rock that is already in tank. After a while I get tired of the "natural coloring" that occurs in the tank and spray it clean. As previous poster said, stay free of chemicals when doing it, and wear a rubber, don't want to get all wet.

Perfect! Thanks for the quick replies. The advantage of a father-in-law... lots of equipment to borrow.

Looks like I'll pressure wash the patio and clean up some rocks!
