This article will cover the Why, When and How to sanitize your RV water system for the DIY (do it yourself) RVer.
Insuring clean, safe drinking water in your recreation vehicle is important to your health and requires sanitizing your fresh water system. Proper care and maintenance is a must.
If your RV has been sitting in storage, or has not been used for a while, the fresh water storage tank, hot water tank and water lines are a great place for bacteria to grow, and you don't want that to happen. In order to remove these problems from your RV, you should sanitize your water system.
The generally accepted method of sanitizing your RV's fresh water system as outlined below involves filling the fresh water system with a solution of household bleach and running the solution through the entire RV water system. Then letting it stand for at least four hours. Finally, flush the system to remove the bleach taste and smell.
This procedure is one you'll find in most books about RVing but be sure to read on to find out what we do.
