Re: Fresh Water Tank Cleaning

Will Hydrogen Peroxide dilution stain my bottom paint at the drain? My Riva rests on her trailer, not in the water. So my thought is to fill my water tank">fresh water tank from my filtered refrigerator in my home.

Re: Fresh Water Tank Cleaning

If you have to leave the boat for a month or two, like for a haul out and work, is it better to have the water tank completely full, or as empty as you can get it? From a standpoint of having something you don't want growing in there?
I have an aluminum tank that is 27 yrs old, I'd like to avoid bleach.
