Yes, you can. After cleaning it, what we usually do after cleaning it is to pour a solution of 2 parts vinegar and 1 part water and let this sit in the water heater tank for about 6 hours. After we flush this out, that's when we pour in the bleach solution. Pour in 6 oz. of bleach and the rest with warm water and let it sit in your tank for another 6 hours. Rinse and flush it out with clean water, and keep flushing until it smells clean.

Hope it helps.
