Water tank.... how do I clean it?!

Post by luke-london-essex »

Hi all,

Looked in the water tank for the first time a few days ago and it’s looking like an aquarium in there! I need to get in to disinfect it thoroughly, but removing the stainless plug and its bracket doesn’t let me fit my arm inside!

I can see there’s about 30-ish rivets holding the cover on, do I simply drill these out to remove the cover, then replace them after?

Thanks,
Luke

My cover is not riveted on, it is screwed and is fairly easy to clean. I would think you could drill the rivets out and then use self tappers to fix it back.
