Thetford Produces Plumbing Sanitizer
Thetford is introducing a new sanitizing solution called the Fresh Water Tank Sanitizer that kills bacteria in fresh water plumbing without using seal-damaging bleach or chlorine.
Mary R. Burrows, manager of chemical development for Thetford, said water tank surfaces and systems must be sanitized to prevent disease. “Bacteria grow and multiply whenever water sits for any length of time—even in chlorinated water—including the inside surfaces of water storage tanks and hoses,” she said. “As water sits, the chlorine level drops, reducing its ability to prevent bacterial growth.” Thetford Corp. of Ann Arbor, Michigan, is a leading supplier of sanitation and refrigeration products for RVs.
