Cleaning a water tank
We have a 20 ltr. Fresh water can in the shower, with pump. Today Hans noticed a hard chalk residue at the bottom of the can and asked me to get my little hand in to give it a scrub, even I couldn't reach the whole area so I cleaned it the way I do our shower head and the kettle with a few shakes of vinegar essence and boiling water, gave it a few minutes to work swished it round a few times and you could see the chalk coming off. He then put this solution through the pump circulating it severely times because the tube was discoloured and hey preso, clean tube and can. He then rinsed both with fresh water, no smell left behind and I'm sure no damage to anything.
Just thought I'd tell you that. Unfortunately we can't do the same with our on-board water tank.😟
We learn something new every day.
