I believe the filter is catching all of it. When I open her back up in the spring I will flush the tank with some CLR and see what happens then sanitize it. Thanks for all the suggestions
DO NOT try this.
CLR is poisonous and highly corrosive acid mix.

Just a warning if you are using chlorine with water that has a high iron content. Chlorine is one of the things that is used to remove clear water iron out of water so it can be filtered. What it does is oxidize the iron making it fall out of the solution and form a sediment.

Well shoot that sucks. Does anyone think acetic acid (white vinegar) would work?

Thanks for clarifying Herk. My previous recommendation was based solely on them using it on coffee makers in their commercials. Guess you can't trust commercials huh?

To the OP, I recant my previous idea.

Here is the "Cowboy Coffee Pot" instructions: Full strength to just cover bottom of pot for 2 minutes. Brush wearing rubber gloves; then flush repeatedly with cold clean water.

For "Coffee Makers" (ONLY "add water each time type" like Mr. Coffee where you must add water every time you make coffee): Dilute 1 in 8 parts with cold water; Run ONE cycle; run a minimum of 4 cycles with cold clean water. DO NOT USE on reservoir type coffee makers that hold water permanently.

The reason is the CLR is just used to descale the heating element and needs to be washed off completely before you try and make coffee you will be drinking. With a reservoir system (like Tasimo or K-Cup makers), there will always be some CLR left in the system no matter how much you flush it out.
