I had the same issue last year.

I drained the hot water tank and got all nasty water out of it, and bleached the tank. I let the bleach sit overnight, and then drained the system. There should be an exterior drain on the heater tank.

Then, with the drain plug out I turned the water pump on and flushed it all out of the heater tank.

I have bleached the entire water system also, and that worked well. It's necessary when some water is trapped in the system during storage.
