    Default Additives to tinacos?

    Is there any additive that can usefully be added to a tinaco (supplied with city water) to make the water cleaner or safer?

    My neighbour adds a capful of cloro (I don't know how often) when the tinaco is full (or nearly so). Is this good practice?

    i do not have a tinaco but i add a pill of chloro (same as used in pools) to the cisterna every now and then. basically i drop the pill in and check sporadically if it dissolved. when it does i drop another one. i am happy with the effects, we do not get sick and neither do our guests...
