Suggestions for cleaning tank


Recommended Posts

Hi all, picked up a new trailer with built in tank but having trouble getting my ppm down!  Filled the tank up (52ppm) and decided to just flush it through as the previous owner poured bleach in the tank to clean it for sale. However once its passed through the system its coming out really bad, water tested after pump but before filter - 558ppm water tested after filter - 286ppm. Now the filter definitely needs new resin but I'm wondering what I can do to clean the tank out as it is obviously contaminating the water? My thoughts were remove the old resin, stick a hose in the tank and turn it on for a few hose to just let fresh water flush out any crud... Any other suggestions?

Just keep filling and dumping water until you get it to 000 might help to drive around with a half full tank to slosh it around a bit then pump it out  no easy solution Ime afrade , shouldn’t take more than a couple if tank fulls to do the job

Thanks mate, recon its worth running all the filter with no resin to clean the insides out as well?

Won’t hurt it don’t put a bleach mix through any filters though

I've always bleached or use Milton to clean tanks and flush with plenty of tap water. I also offer an IBC cleaning service as I have a rotary tank jetter
