Hi . buy sterilising tablets and follow the instructions .
Copy and paste into your browser. Plumb centre have shops in most Ares or online
It will essentially be turning off the water to the tank and then draining through one tap. Then adding the tablets to the tank, filling up again . leaving to work , before draining the water through the taps

What about using milton fluid?
Expert:  Plumberpro replied 2 years ago.
Even though it is a steriliser, I would get something that is meant for the job , as dosing instructions will come with it.
