You didn't mention if it was a metal or plastic tank. The pipework down off the tank to the taps etc would also need cleaning.I am a water systems specialist recently moved over from UK. If you are in the Limassol area I would come and have a lookjust out of interest and provide more specific advice. (No charge)

Thankyou - I didn't realise you could get purifying tablets at DIY shops. I thought about this before, but am only familiar with the tablets used to steralize babies bottles !

When I asked at DIY shops , if they had anything that would help, they were unable to offer any solutions .

Perhaps this didn't cross their minds. Can you buy them anywhere ?

Hi Moira

I would suggest that you disconnect the Tank and take it down , and give it a good scrub out . That would be the best option , you should drain it off with a Hose Pipe . Otherwise cleaning it in place , may well cause you more problems with the pipes being blocked , and contaminated .

Not sure how much of a problem this would be for you.
