    Anyone else noticed due to the temp rise that they have wiggly things growing in their tanks?

    Its algae. You will never get rid of it now. I get it in fish tank. A pain. I can scrub the inside of that. You cant with a water tank.
    Add a load of bleach. Leave for hour then power wash, where you can. Don't get splashes in eyes

    I just flush the tanks out myself and like you say use hypo to kill off the algae and wiggly things in it too. If the inside walls and bottom of the tank is very bad I pressure wash i out first.

    Is this your tank in your van? Or a holding ibc tank?

    Would scare the life of me if I found something like that in my van. Lol
