sanitizing a fresh water tank

When sanitizing a fresh water tank, how do I get the water and the solution to go into the fresh water tank? The inlet does not allow you to "pour" anything into the tank.

I pour the solution into the empty hose first, then put the hose in the inlet, and then turn on water.

I was going to use a transfer pump like this one with a clean 5 gallon bucket of bleach and water mix https://www.waynepumps.com/sites/def...%20Branded.jpg

If you can put a hose in the inlet how come not a funnel to add your bleach? Later RJD

If your filling the FRT with the hose then one can just add bleach using a funnel then connect water hose to fill. Sounds like you are making a project out of this. Enlighten me, maybe I'm missing something here. Later RJD

You need to have a pressurized system to push the bleach into the Fresh water tank. A funnel will not work.
Filling a hose with bleach 1st and connecting to trailer works as long as you have pressurized water pushing the bleach.

If your buying a pump get the Wayne 12v type so you can fill your tank during dry camping.

X2 with a funnel. I always just pour it in. I don't understand why you would need a pressurized system to push the bleach into the FRT. Gravity gets the job done from the fill tube.

I use a watering can that i bought specifically for this task. Mix up your solution ans pour it into the inlet - then fill up the tank with your white RV hose.

Mix the bleach in a bucket put a funnel in the inlet pour the mixture in the funnel. I may be missing something here as well.
