Water tank cleanouts

After pulling strings of plastic from pump screen multiple times I decided that the techs that drilled tank left debris inside tank.
I drilled 4 1/2 holes in tank and vacuumed out tank. I noticed that there was a fine layer of slime even after bleaching tank a few times a year. Now I am able to reach in and scrub tank inside and completely allow tank to dry while not in use. These are the parts I used and just used silicone to hold them in.

It looks as if you had quite a job getting to your tank...

When it comes to the guts of my tank: I'll take the "ignorance is bliss" approach...

We donít cook with or drink tank water either, but the thought of showering and washing dishes in it grossed me out. I am a plumber, so if something makes me uncomfortable its gotta be bad. Hahahahaha

Wow that’s a lot of impressive work. I am in the ignorance crowd. We used bottle water for just about everything but that’s a nice modification.
