I have 80 litre RV water fitted under my tray with filler pipe to side of canopy and 10 mm food water grade hose to tap and the water has bad taste of plastic I have tried Milton's baby bottle wash and bi carb soda mix but still no good any suggestions would be great.

I found Tank Cleen from BCF worked well for my new poly tanks.
Probably available elsewhere also.
Cheers

What brand are the components troopy?

If you fit "Pope" brand water grade hose you'll never get rid of that horrible plastic taste! You'll have to replace it.

Others may have similar info on other components?

Cheers,

Kevin....... :=)

On the undertray tank on my last vehicle I'd get a plastic taste for the first 500mls - then it would go away if I kept running the water - so I knew it was the hose and not the tank. If you get the same, then replace the hose. AS above with Kevin, do not buy Pope brand water hose. The Nylex and Neta brands are OK.

Just replaced all the hoses with non toxic drinking water hose from RV shop and have filled tank with mix of bi carb soda and white vinegar and then filled tank with clean water leave it for 24 hours flush tank out and hope it is OK.

if you fill up your water tank with garden hose from town water the chlorine burns the inside of the hose you must change all your hose to the blue double lined hose and no more tast
if you fill up from a rain water tank it does not mater what hase you use
