Cleaning water tanks

what i have done in the past is to pump the tank as dry as possible. then, if u can, use a wet-dry vac or some sort of scrubber to get rid of any slime or solid matter in the tank. then i wud fill the tank with a solution of either bleach and water or perhaps peroxide and water and let it sit for between several hours and a day. then flush the tank with fresh water several times to get rid of the bleach smell. use sweet water or other conditioner in the tank and a filter before the faucet.
