What about a small submersible water pump? They are portable and run on electric. Just fill up a 5-gallon bucket with your water/bleach solution, drop the pump in with a hose running to the tank fill and turn it on.

That's how we used to get the pink anti-freeze into my old trailer through the city water fill line.

WW its not worth it, some people can't comprehend it. They are only used to the gravity fill types and never heard of the new or other style.

They don't read the whole thread, only one or two posts then jump in thinking they are smarter than everyone else.

It not just here, belong to other forums and some members there do the same.

Ive been accused of being a cat lover, someone that can't express himself, someone that would pee in someone's FWT. All because there are different ways to fill a tank... Holy molely! Very strange thread.. Bless their hearts!
