Calgon in fresh water tank

We generally fill our fresh water tank at home and our water is very hard. I am wondering if anyone has used a cap full of Calgon in their fresh water tank to help with hard water spots. We don't drink water from the tank, we have bottled water.

Are you saying you would wash your dishes using water from your fresh water holding tank rather than the hose connection? If so, how are you going to rinse the Calgon off the dishes? Calgon is sodium carbonate which can cause trouble swallowing and inflammation of the throat if ingested, or pain and reddening of the eyes.

You would have to be able to rinse the Calgon water of the dishes to avoid ingesting any of it.

Maybe look into getting an on the go portable water softener to attach to your trailer.

Is there any way you can fill it with softened water from home? I am assuming you have a water softener at home.
