@hillbilly Hi Boyd. I have not personally used a bleach/soap/water mix, but your question led me to search for info. From what I found, it is not a preventative, but a First-line treatment used at the first sign of a problem .

Here is some of the info I found, and it has both pros and cons. I hope this is useful to you.
