Re: potable water systems

First just fill and drain with potable water a couple of times, watch to see if any debris flushes out. Remove all aerators after and clean and inspect. next a strongly chlorinated fill, I have a 15 gal tank and use about a pint of bleach, run to fill all lines and let set overnight then drain and flush thoroughly a couple of times. Should be good to go at this point if no contaminates flush with the last flush.
