Cleaning Caravan Water System
Cleaning caravan water system once the weather turns and all of a sudden you can get out on weekend breaks in your caravan, camper or motorhome the first thing you want to do is get it ready by making it spic and span inside and out so it's ready for the the years touring holidays.
This is our advice on how to clean the interior of any caravan campervan or motorhome to include cleaning caravan water system.
The best advice we can give you is to sterilise the complete water system to make sure your going to be using nice clean and fresh water and then you wont be getting any tummy bugs.
To start this operation close all taps that you left open as per our winterising caravan page which I'm sure you have read, next pour in a propitiatory water system cleaner making sure to follow the instructions on the bottle as to how much to use before filling with fresh water.
Now turn the taps back on begin with the tap the greatest distance away from the storage tank, this will get water running through the pipes and clear the air out you may hear some funny noises as the water starts to flow don't worry it's air coming through, now as you can smell your cleaning fluid and the water is coming through the taps turn all the taps off again and let the system stand for around half a day this will ensure the full system is sterilised completely.
After the half day standing time in your cleaning caravan water system operation you can turn back on to run water into your waste water tank, now it's time to fill your fresh water tank again and let it run until you are sure are the cleaning fluid has passed through your pipes into the waste water tank a good method of checking it has all passed into the tank is when you can not smell the cleaner anymore, next you can empty your grey water tank and change your water filters ready for the adventures to come.
Aqua Roller or Other Tank/Bottles Used To Fetch Fresh Water
Now if you have an Aqua roller or whatever tank you use to bring water to your leisure vehicle it's time to give them the a good clean too, for this we like to use bicarbonate soda or Milton naturally the amount to water ratio will be down to the size of the vessel you are cleaning, after giving the water a jolly god swilling around let the the tank stand for around a day then swill it out with lots of nice clean water and your ready for the off.
Cleaning The Toilet Cassette
