Re: Drinking water tank water.

I regularly use the water tanks onboard for drinking, washing cooking, etc. Regular use, regular cleaning, and I fill from municipal supply. I do use a charcoal filter on the tap for drinking to make it taste good. Very few bugs are resistant to chlorine, and those would be make the evening news if they were coming from a municipal supply. Residual chlorine = safe water. Can check residual chlorine with a simple paper strip if concerned.
