Sanitizing without bleach

With all the COVID stuff going on and bleach not being readily available how would one go about sanitizing their fresh water tank/system?

The winterizing antifreeze will do a good job, add half a gallon or so plus a couple gallons of water then hit the road for an hour or so. Then drain it at a car wash grate. flush the tank as you would if you used beach.

Another idea is to buy a small amount of swimming pool beach and use it. Or one of the drop in toilet bleach pucks. Same stuff, don't use colored ones, dissolve the solid in water first. Dissolve one/half teaspoon in about 2 gallons of water then add it to your tank and fill the tank with water. Let it sit for an hour or more.
