Does your toilet use HOT water for flushing? I hope you're using an inline water filter on your water supply - both city water connection and to fill your fresh water tank. [emoticon]

Normally use an inline filter.
The theory was draining with the low point drains with the water heater not bypassed can pull crud in to the cold water line. I don’t know, but the crud looked suspiciously like that seen on the anode rod previously.
I did not use a filter when filling the tank when I was adding bleach for sanitizing.
It could have been an algae from the water setting for most of five months BUT the water stank of chlorine with initial use when I finally went camping.
Won’t dewinterize until within days of camping next time.

Hmm.. Learned something new! Don't open the low point drains until after the water heater has been bypassed. Thanks for the tip! [emoticon]
