I have a "water treatment" question that your wife may be able to answer:
For 26 years, (1978 to 2004), my house sat empty/unused for 1-2 weeks each year, (for the last 10 years, for 3-6 months each year).
The 36 year old water system in my house has never been sanitized/disinfected.
Should I sanitize/disinfect it?
BTW, my RV water system
is drained before winter storage, (and has been for the 14 years I've owned my coach).
It's used, (with chlorinated city water
and/or campground well water
), 6-9 months each year.... but it has been only sanitized twice
, (once when it was new and again at 16 years of age).
Thanks, (and thank your wife)
