Re: Drinking water tank water.
We drink it all the time but....
I shock and physically clean the tanks each spring
The tanks NEVER see antifreeze
Plumbing is new
We have a whole house 3M style cartridge filter for taste, odor, cysts etc..
We change the main filter 3-4x per season
I turn the water in the tanks at least bi-weekly
Add a cap full of bleach with each fill
Use a Brita tap mounted filter at the faucet on top of the other filter..
Drinking a glass right now and it tastes great..... We've been drinking on-board water like this for about 16 years.... Sorry I could never let my tanks get dirty enough that I would not drink from them... That is Ewwwwwww..
