As long as you stay in very very low concentrations of the bleach you will be fine but I have found (Pool Shock treatment con bleach works for me as it is easy to carry on the boat and a little goes a long way still using the 500g packet.

but no mater how low you go there is some damage, but low enough it will last for 100+ years, issues come up when you pore the bleach directly in and spill a bit (100% for long periods) and you are correct if you can't taste it you are in the 100 year zone.

But just spill once on the outside missing the cleaning and you are on your way to holes.

Don't get me wrong ss is good and maybe even better with a water maker which has NO tolerance for Clorides, But cleaning is better done with an ozone maker, UV is even better but You have to find a way to allow all surfaces to be impinged with the UV light.

Hope this clears up the bleach issue (I assumed we all pour it directly into the tank rather than preblend and add through a hose.
