Fresh water tank flush

Hi there.

To make a long story short I dropped the fresh water tank out of my 77 Overlander, it's plastic by the way. And it's got a bit of sediment and I'm wondering whats the best way to flush it out. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

Position it with the opening down, use sawhorses or whatever. Now use hose with a small sprayer that you twist or use a powerwasher, your sediment will run out as you spray the inside.

I wish ours was just sediment inside. It's a "lovely green color". I'm going to try to bleach and then flush. Let us know how your's goes!
