A "normal" sanitization treatment may not do it if you already have a bacteria problem. You may need a heavy dose of bleach (double the normal amount) to kill everything for sure. (Like shocking a pool).

Here are some tips for using bleach and one for using "DChlor" pool shock.

I also included my winterizing checklist.
