Chlorine level in Fresh water tank?

I used a pool test kit and measure the chlorine levels in the fresh water tank to find it that is zero if the water is not used fast enough or when it sits unused for a few weeks. That can create algae and other creatures not too nice and that I assume it would be hard to clean and may even plug things up.

First thought was to add a bit of "clorox" to the water from time to time.

Any suggestion is welcome on how I can keep the chlorine level in Fresh water tank at the same level as the tap water?

Certainly don't want to store it for long but algae also needs light for any significant growth rapidly. Google should have a ratio for your tank size if you want to treat it.

A pool test kit is hardly a suitable mechanism to test for potable water.
