Hi Paul if you wash your tank out with a solution of bi-carb of soda this should fix the problem. You might have to do it a few times.

Rod,

Im with you mate, vanilla essence is the way to go! My late mum used to wash the refridgerator out with a mixture of vanilla essence and water as well.

I'm not following.....what's the go with vanilla essence that could possibly remove a plastic taste? I thought VE was used in frigs to mask smells and the true VE with its alcohol, may kill some bacteria etc in a concentrated form.

Bi-Carbonate of Soda is cheap, readily available from any Supermarket and will not leave a taste of it's own.

A lot of the time, the tatse is in the plastic tubing, and not the tank. I eliminated mine simply by replacing everything - including fillers and breathers with Nylex blue drinking water hose.

Give Uncle the Cupie Doll.

I've had water sit in two new water tanks and 4 plastic jerries for months and it doen't taint. I run water through the hose for at least a minute before putting it anywhere the tank or jerry I am planning to fill.

This is the secret, put fresh water into your tank.
