    I've previously used the plug in aerosol repellents. I worry about using them now with the tank. Do you think it's safe to use in the bedrooms only. The tank is in the lounge and the dining room and hallway is between the lounge and bedrooms.

    I don't think it is a problem to use the repellant in the same room as long as the room is ventilated and the repellant is on the opposite side of the room where the skimmer is

    it would be a problem if the repellant was near the skimmer where it would intake very concentrated amounts of poison
