I have just installed a water tank on my CT and was wondering what would be the best way to give it and the hoses a good clean out before using it proper.
Someone told me to fill it up and put in a handfull of bicarb soda and take the trailer for a run.
Would this work or are ther some other ideas.
Any comments would be appreciated.

Only thing that takes the plastic taste from the plastic water tanks is a water filter, i tried all of the old wives tales and purifiers and additives and the water filter the only thing that worked for me.

I got this dual filter unit from a home filter place and had it at my old house, when we move i took it with me, but never got around to installing it in the new house, so i put it in the camper, gotta say the best thing ever, and the water tastes great.

G'day Baz, have you got a 12volt pump before or after the filter. i was thinking along the same lines for my camper.

It's a S/S tank and at the moment filled with rain water, but on our longer travels the water is always a bit questionable, so a filter would be the go. Or for that matter a filter on the filler hose.

I have it after the pump, the water now flows on a bit after you turn the pump off, which is the only down side.

Having a tap that turns the pump on and off would probably solve this, but i have the pump serving the shower too, so i had no choice with, putting it before the pump could stop the flow on.

G'day Howard T, a place like Lloyds Caravan have a tank cleaner that they use in C/van tanks, and is suposed to be ok.
