mitchellg2241 Posted October 6, 2022 Share Posted October 6, 2022 RV stored in Florida for two years with Well water in tank (100 Gallons). Want to refresh and clean out house water tank. Read in an RV book: 1. Drain water tank completely refill halfway with clean water 2. Mix 1/4 of a cup of household bleach for every 15 gallons of tank capacity in a container with a gallon or two of clean water. 3. Pour this mixture into the water tank and top off the water tank with fresh water. 4. Drive the rig around the block a few times to mix the solution. 5. Pump the bleached water out of every faucet, at least a quart. Run the water through the hot water tank thoroughly. 6. Let water stand for a few hours. Then drain the entire tank including the hot water tank. 7. To remove bleach odor mix 1/2 cup of baking soda with a gallon of water and pour into the fresh water tank. Circulate that water through all faucets and hot water tank. 8. Let sit for a few days drive the rig around the block a few times then drain the system and fill with fresh water. Any other ideas or any corrections to what I just wrote would be greatly appreciated thank you, Mitchell Goldman Monaco Diplomat 40' 2001 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
