Re: Drinking water tank water.

We have household-style charcoal 3M cartridge filters between our tanks and the faucets (even our foot pump). That gets rid of 99.99% of all bacteria and contaminates which is as good or better than most water supplies. I change those cartridges once a season. I typically drink bottled drinks on the boat ... but I am comfortable washing hands, dishes, brushing teeth, showering etc. with this water. I would certainly drink it if that was all we had. But why drink water, when there is beer. That's silly.
