Doesn't the chlorine bleach come from the store in a plastic bottle? I'd be surprised if there was an incompatibiltiy of some sort.

Good point, Jeff. And what do people dump into their plastic lined swimming pools....chlorine.

I don't know where I read that too much chlorine is not good for RV plumbing, but I retract my above posts.....unless I can find documentation.

Maybe it's not good for the rv'ers plumbing. If you can leave water in a drum for six months, you could do the same in the TM right? Water sits in storage tanks. Heck it sits in the ground forever . I live in earthquake country too but don't store mine full. I can't decide but usually boondock once a month so maybe I should leave it full. My house water heater is strapped but that doesn't help if the house it's attached to falls down. My 1930 garage is already leaning pretty good. The TM doesn't fit inside though.

When we lived in Silicon Valley, we had a pool. We constantly had to add chlorine to the water. I'm not a chemist so I can't explain it in a scientific manner, but somehow the chlorine dissipated into the atmosphere. In the TM tank, the tank is vented; so I would imagine that the chlorine finds its way out in the same sort of a process.
