Default Chlorine Tablets

Does anyone use or know about using the small 1" chlorine tablets in you fresh water tank onboard the PleasureWay? I want to make sure the water is safe on board. Thanks Bb

I've never heard of them being used in RV fresh water tanks, but i used to use them in my swimming pool.
Maybe you can just drop one into the fresh water fill, and fill with water. Seems like that is about your only option. Are they stabilized like pool pucks, or pure chlorine like pool shock? The former is milder than the latter.
To prep our fresh tank, I add a small amount of bleach to a full tank of water, and then drive around to shake it up in the system, then drain it and repeat, and then just fill it with tap water.
Then it's hit the road time!!

btw, we don't drink fresh water from the tank, just bottled, so it's probably overkill, what I do.

I agree that I put bleach in, ride around, drain it and fill the tank with fresh water. Sometimes you have to drain and refill to get rid of the chlorine smell. And I do sometimes drink from this water. I also have a container I carry water in that I use first.

In our country water system, the state told us not to use the chlorine tablets for pools. There's another kind (and I'm sorry I don't know what it is) that can be safely used for drinking water.

Some info on purifying drinking water taken from Princeton University. It's by a backpacker.
I've heard of most of this from a friend who hunts and fishes regularly, and has tried several
different types of equipment for quick water purification in the bush. Some work, some don't.
I personally would only drink water form an unknown source, if it were thoroughly boiled.
That's just me.
Enjoy.

The tablets I have are for my water system. They are 1" compressed. The water system is basically PVC pipes and pumps so about the same. I carry a Brita filter for drinking water but just wanted to make sure the water for bathing is safe. You do get a mouth full sometimes. Thanks for the replies. Still lots to learn about Class B.
