CLR in fresh water tank?

Has anyone tried this?
Monitor shows 4 lights with tank empty. Wondering if a little clr, to wash and rince fresh water tank, will get corrosion off the sensors in the tank and get the monitor to read correctly again.

Normally it's not calcium, lime or rust giving a faulty reading on the sensor it's slime.

I would only put CLR in tank if okay to drink it. Have not heard of anybody doing this.

Time for a little bleach and a few tank flushes. I would really hesitate to introduce chemicals that strong into my potable water system.

CLR in fresh water tank?

You can also use baking soda fill the tank about 1/4 full. Will neutralize taste and crane everything up. No CLR or any cleaner in fresh water tank!

Too bad they couldn't come up with a chlorine tab like you use in your pool that you could just drop in the tank every time you fill it so it is a safe amount for the size of the tank.

I have seen bleach tablets for laundry use at Walmart.
