Re: Drinking water tank water.

For my tanks, (30 gallons) this would mean that I would be pouring 3 cups of bleach and 1 1/2 gallons of vinegar into the ocean.
We use a small chlorine puck to make the water safely useful, but we still show concern for our environment.
If we do need to use some of the water for washing, doing dishes, etc, we will boil it, but even boiled we still don't drink it.
We have three rules;
No screaming.
No bleeding on the sails.
No slobbering on the charts.
