    I have just been adding hydrogen peroxide to my tank and recirculate my system for maybe 45 minutes. What do you do and how often.?

    I don't think the reason is down to a visible need. It's to eliminate the things you can't see lurking in your equipment.

    With the constant re-filling and emptying of our tank in the van with pure water, is there realy any need to do this.
    It's not as if the water is laying stagnant for any length of time for legionares/bacteria etc to be a problem.

    Maybe a thought for people who are harvesting rain water in multiple tanks and storing water for any length of time though :huh: .

    Usually every 6 months, use a sanitiser from i think cleaning spot. But cant remember tbh.

    Every week i tell everybody to sanitise equipment, up to them if they do don't. All vans have it installed.

    Systems shouldn't run completely dry, water resides inside hoses pumps and filter systems. Surprisingly when you don't work its stagnant in the system therefore bacteria both aerobic an anaerobic lurk inside breading some nasty surprises. Also as there should be water in the system all the time, this water only gets diluted when refilling and allows the bacteria to spread around some more. Also if you have a clear type water tank the daylight or any light will allow algae to grow in your supposedly pure water system. This is the reason why I sanitise my own system even though my tank is black and totally light proof.
