There is an interesting discussion on the Caravanners forum about whether to empty the water tanks when not in use. I usually open the valves on the final trip home just to remove unnecessary weight. However of more concern is the 25mm clear hose used to fill them. I was told by a caravanner he had a big problem with algae growth in these which is a bigbig nono. has anyone had a similar problem? I intend to paint these hoses with black body panel deadener when I get around to it. (it's on the ToDo list)

We haven't had any problems, with our water. So far we have been able to refill all tanks from town water supplies. I usually use a canister type filter in the line when filling away from our known good water supply. As for algie in the clear plastic pipes, I haven't had a problem there either. Because the pipes are underneath the van and don't get any direct sunlight, there shouldn't be much of a chance of algie growth. The best solution is to use the BT more often.
