No problem, going to try and keep updating the list when I add more to it. I have had a few breakdowns on the road and its really nice to be prepared for it.

You might be able to chemically treat the water with chlorine, especially if you're not using it for drinking.
What concentrate/amount of bleach would you add to a 20 gallon water tank to refer it safe?

Using bleach to purify water is common in Mexico and parts south.

From the EPA; https://www.epa.gov/ground-water-and...drinking-water

From the CDC; https://www.cdc.gov/healthywater/pdf..._Flyer_508.pdf

Thanks! The EPA link had this chart for anyone else wondering:




So for 20 gallons of water the EPA says 6ml of bleach, the CDC says 15ml of bleach (if water is clear). So between 6-15ml of bleach for 20 gallons. Since this water is not for drinking and only for showers/sink I will most likely learn towards the 15ml or more to prevent bacterial growth in the tank (since it may be heated to 90 degrees F).

Make sure the bleach is just plain bleach, not "low splash" or "scented".
