Chlorite is exactly the same active ingredient as in Clorox bleach. Save your money. Use unscented Clorox, just like your Airstream owner's manual, the World Health Organization, FEMA, and the EPA all recommend for sanitizing fresh water supplies.

It has been about 40% full.


call me overly cautious but i'm not big on drinking water that's been stored around plastic.. when I camp we have big glass water containers that we fill with RO water from the health food store .. delicious tasting and chemical free ..

If you are in Texas you probably already know you can buy RO water from the kiosks for as little as 15 cents per gallon. We never drank city water while we had a park model in Tx, primarily because it tasted so bad!

For your FW tank; drain it and refill it with fresh water and add 2 or 3 ounces of bleach. Let it sit for 2 or 3 hours and then pump it through your lines (by-pass the HW tank) and then drain and flush again. Next time drain the tanks when you leave the trailer in storage. Then you just need to flush the bottom of the tank and off you go!
