I turn a 5 gallon bucket upside down & sit on it while I watch the hose blast water in. I treat after filling since most of the tanks have overflows for water changes, wouldn't do much good treating before I started filling. I go by feel but did pick up a cheap herp thermometer that I taped to the brass faucet, it shows me when I've run the hot water tank out of hot water, temp drops pretty fast.
