>Do we have any chemists out there who know what is in the sanitizing
This really depends on the manufacture. The lable should say what the
active ingredient is and how much to use. The most common is quaternary
ammonium. 1 tablet usually treats 1 gallon of water to 200ppm, however,
these are not good for use on aluminium, copper, or iron. They are widly
used in the bar industry to sanitize glasses.
>Is it sodium metabisulfite,
No, this is an antioxidant used as a food preservative, it used to be used
to make meats look fresh.
No, this is the active ingredient in liquid household bleach.
>Also, if you know what is in the tablet, how much is in each tablet?
Again this depends on the manufacture.
