I just ran the faucets a little longer and I still don't smell a strong odor. So I had my daughter come in with me, and she smelled it right away. So I guess I don't have a very sensitive nose for bleach.
Leave bleach sit in system overnight is best to.

Maybe your bleach is expired? It can't hold the CL gas for long esp if the container was previously.

Don't think so, pulled it from the laundry room. My wife uses bleach somewhat often, so I think its probably still good.

Next time use powdered pool shock. 1 teaspoon for up to 100 gallons. Mix well in a gallon of water then dump, in you tank. Fill your tank and using your pump, run each faucet. You should get a very faint smell of a swimming pool. Top off you fw tank again. Let sit for at least 3 hours, drain and flush once. Take a sniff and you'll find no chlorine smell. A 1 lb bag runs less than $3.00 and will last you for years. It is extremely corrosive so be sure to keep it in a sealed container.
