Next time I think I'll buy a drill motor water pump from HD and push it in. I'll flush it in the AM. Nice point someone earlier made about running white vinegar through if it still smells like chlorine.
One thing you CAN'T do is turn your garden hose on full and try to fill your fw tank!
Air cannot escape faster then water being put in.
It's also not good for your fw tank to do so!
Try just turning on your hose at at half or less.
1" hose Inlet
1/2" air outlet
Try turning your hose on at a trickle the slow turn it up a little until you find a good ratio and it's not spitting back at you.
