    Most of us sanitize our fresh water tanks when dewinterizing. I just did this, added a little chlorine bleach to the tank. filled it up, ran all the faucets until the antifreeze was gone and I could smell chlorine. Now...I wanted to hitch up and drive around with the bleach mixture before dumping itbut, for lack of a good explanation, I have not been able to! My question is...will the bleach mixture damage the water pump and toilet gaskets if I let it sit for a couple of weeks?

    Personally, I would not let bleach sit there any longer than necessary. I used to put bleach tablets, by Clorox, in the tank of my toilets in the house to keep them clean. After a period of time all the gaskets were soft and toilet not working right. I had to rebuild all three toilets. Stopped using the bleach tablets and no more problems.
