      Probably wouldn't hurt to use some bleach water, but not to be used as a routine treatment of nets as it can damage the fabric portion of the net. If the equipment has time to thoroughly dry before the next use, that will take care of most problems in itself.

      Carp pox is a virus and is CyHV-1. It is a Koi Herpes Virus and heat will inactivate it. Letting everything dry out completely on a sunny day would work.
