Easy screwdriver - just reconstitute your orange juice concentrate with the tap water!

Depending on the size of my fresh water tanks I've always added a gallon or two of the cheapest white vinegar I can find and then pump it through the system. The vinegar smell quickly dissipates. We used to full-time and sanitized our system every 6 months.

I've always used White Vinegar after the bleach. A couple of cups and let it set for a while. Flush with fresh water and yourr good to go. Been doing this for 25 years.

kcjoe1 - maybe I've been wasting vinegar by dumping in a gallon or two. Next time I will try the cup or two. Saved pennies equals more diesel equals more fun!

Again - thanks for all the advice!!! I think I'll try plain water first and then move to the vinegar flush if I'm still having issues.

The hotter the water the better it will dissipate chlorine.

I came across some interesting information. Thymol is as effective as bleach but without the hazards, side effects, and smell.

I was a bit surprised that bleach is worthless after it's 3 months old.
