Remover the water and replace it with a large steel or glass trough with
water (1 X 1 foot trough is sufficient). Then clean it with ethanol and
replace the water every other week (every week is a good practice).
Use of chemicals is always risky and may give out an unpleasant
odour. But you could try putting some EDTA or a fungicide that is used
inside the incubator water jacket for the purpose.
Best of luck

Almost all laboratories have an incubator with water on the bottom. I am
wondering what chemicals are better suited to prevent growth of
bacteria, yeast, fungi, etc in it without damaging cells. Thanks!
