Capt.Kris...Baking soda will not do it. Use bleach as Brak suggests in all your working tanks...then one by one...open all your faucets until you can smell the bleach coming out of them. Then let the bleach stay in the lines for an hour. Then open all faucets and pump out the tanks and refill with clean water. The repeat the faucet by faucet exercise until you can no longer smell bleach.
