Hydorgen Peroxide/Sea Salt in Water Conditioner/Softeners?

I'm a health-conscious renter with a Culligan Super S H20 conditioner, and I'm wondering about using food-grade hydrogen peroxide instead of bleach to clean the system.

Currently I put an intake hose from the Super S, into a gallon of bleach, and as needed it uptakes bleach to clean the system. I'd rather use hydrogen peroxide, as I am aware that bleach even in ppm can have significant health effects over time.

Can someone address the pros/cons of this, and what to be aware of/look for in using hydrogen peroxide in this way?

On a similar note, I also have a Culligan water softener, and I'm interested to use food grade sea salt, such as "Ultimate Superfoods Himalayan Crystal Salt" here:
