What do you do to maintain the water in a Tenaco. And to keep it clean ?

Add Chlorine ? how Much ? How Often ?
Are there systems available to maintain them ?

Draining and washing out with Chlorine every few months ?

Thanks in advance

you can buy some chlorine tablets (tabletas de cloro) in most Ferreterias and you can have cleaners come do the job for about $500 pesos, but not every 2 months, twice a year should be fine.

silver based liquid...

I don't remember the exact name of it... but one could buy it at camping and survivals stuff shops. It's a clear liquid with some silver based... "whatever"... sorry, I am not into chemicals.
But silver is an well known old antibacterial.
Just drops of the liquid are said to keep water drinkable with no noticeable change in taste (except Americans will miss the chlorine taste ;) ).
