White vinegar for cleaning waters?

I usually use diluted bleach when scrubbing out the horses waters, but was curious as I have a full gallon of generic white vinegar at home, does anyone use vinegar to clean? I have heard of a few people using it but I've always just done the bleach dilute.

I use either one, depending on what I have on hand. The bleach will disinfect everything and kills the algae. The vinegar cuts the grime and kills the algae and some bacteria like E. Coli and Salmonella.

What about Peroxide? I detest bleach and use H2O2 everywhere instead.

I've thought about that too- bleach isn't my favorite it's just what is at the barn. I dilute it a lot before use, I figured vinegar might be a bit safer

I use whte vinegar to clean the calcium depostits off my fish tanks and it works beautifully, so I imagine that it'd work just as well on horse troughs.
