That's not good news. Does it have an access port where you can get in there and scrub it? I would use dishwasher detergent to see if helps. Odds are you will need a new tank if you really want this to go away. I, for one, really like having clean, odor free water, aboard. Maybe its because all tank water when I was a kid was very gross. We used to add this biocide to it that made it even worse. Never drank it.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
