Welcome to the forum!
When I clean my water tank (100 gal Rubbermaid) I use ~1 cup of bleach mixed with a gallon of water to kill any algae that has accumulated. In the height of the summer, I'll clean my tank once per month but much less often in the other seasons and only once or twice during the winter - being in the south, we get a lot of sun all year 'round.
Some people put a small amount of bleach in the tank to inhibit the algae and my tack shop has some pills that you can add to do the same but I haven't tried either.
BTW, I never let it get to the stage that you describe.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
