Do you get the same result when filled up from a different area?
Not sure how much access you have to the opening but as you said bleech or chlorine in the right concentration should kill most things you will encounter.
I have heard some people putting a lot of ice in tanks (gray and black) for the scrubbing effect to keep them clean.
Let us know how it plays out. I am interested.
This is just a question to address what I know will be an issue once we put a tank in.
Right now at our house we have to clean and scrub the water bowls for the "tenants" (cats) every two days or so just so they don't feel slimy.
the shower gets the "pink" tint after say a weeks use and is slippery as heck and has to be cleaned every weekend. (in the corners and around the drain where water sits)
the sinks and the tub only get it around the drain gasket area (weird) no standing water i guess
I just assume our water would do the same in a tank sitting for a week
