Were you on city water or fresh water tank. If it was the tank was it sanitized with bleach?

I would drain it completely, and sanitize it completely. And above all don't cook with it or drink it.

That is one thing I never do anyway. I take two gallon judges that have a valve on them.

We use bottled water to cook and drink.

I use 1/4 cup for every 15 gallons of water. There are lots of videos on U Tube that show the process in detail.
