I flushed and cleaned my tanks over the weekend and was just curious what some of you do to keep your water fresh? Mine starts to smell a bit of sulfer after a few months, I have heard leaving bleach in the tanks could cause problems.
I clean the tanks about every other year and use Clorex and rags to wipe them clean. Then when filling them (bow tank which feeds the keel tank), I do two things and have no odor or taste problems at all. When filling them (somewhere around 50 gallons of water, I add about a quarter cup of Clorex and a dash of Star Brite water purifier (one teaspoon treats 100 gallons of water). This is how the tanks have been cleaned and treated since Paloma was new (she's a '79 Bristol 29.9) and that small concentration of Clorex has never had any negative effect on the tanks.
We use regular hydrogen peroxide. Our tank holds 160 gallons of water and every other time that we top off we add a quart sized bottle of peroxide. Works just as well as chlorine except without the possible negatives. The water tastes great, never a chlorine smell and if you accidentally overdose the tank its not a problem.
