Getting ready to reset.......

I am getting ready to reset my 70 corner bow. I have already purchased my new light and will be making a cerges reactor for co2 distribution. I am going to replace my Eco complete with mgps topped with black diamond blasting sand-finer grit as I want cories and khulis again. I have been plagued with clado algae since I introduced the moss balls to my tank in 2008! I will be chucking all the plants and driftwood as I don't want to reintroduce ANY spores or bits of clado to the new tank. My question is what is the best way to kill this Algae from my filter intake/return as well as water circulators? What about the glass? Bleach? I want to make sure nothing survives to infest after I reset the tank. Anyone have any thoughts?

Bleach would be the best way.

Just make sure you rinse well afterwards and treat everything with 2x the recommended dosage of dechlorinator to ensure all the remaining bleach is neutralized.
