Hey - don't forget to change or installl an dunder-sink water filter from your local home depot. I think they only run $20 and HOLY COW what a difference they make!

I've tried the bleach (which works great) on my own boats, and I've tried the vinegar to follow up. The vinegar was FOUL even after flushing, and I had to replace some hoses. I even tried a baking soda / water solution which dissolved good but still didn't kill it all off.

Make sure you pump the bleach up to the pumps and unti it comes out of the faucets or else it will all be just sitting in the tank.

Do you have hot water or a recirculating system, or is it old-fashioned pump from seawater and freshwater tanks?

I reject your reality and substitute my own.
