Algae Growth in Fresh Water Tank

Wasn't someone here having either problems or concerns on algae in their fresh tank?

Re: Algae Growth in Fresh Water Tank

Might be a good idea to put it on black tanks as well. In case you have little ones prone to sending stuff down the toilet or if you goof up and do what I did recently.... I forgot to close the valve after dumping. After a week, I had the "Tower of Doom". It took a couple of days, a lot of water and an act that I would like to never repeat, to get the tank cleaned out. If/when we replace the black tank, it will be installed on a slight slope as will the grey tank.

Re: Algae Growth in Fresh Water Tank

lots of rv black tanks have a sloping bottom.. the newer ones that i have do... well so do some of the newer grey tanks as well... makes it easy just to install it with the top level...

Re: Algae Growth in Fresh Water Tank

The used black tank we put on the bus is old. Very old. It has a flat bottom except for a 6X6 with 4" drop where the drain is. We plumbed the vanity sink into the black tank but I must need to use more water. I did not have this problem with the sloping tanks on the Class C. I guess the slope right under where the toilet drops makes a big difference.
