Re: Drinking water tank water.

Up the BC coast I've filled my 1500 liters by holding a funnel and hose to the glacier water running down the cliff side. On the arctic ice just pump it off the flows. Never used filters or chlorine , still don't . Now trapped commercially dockside on city water , Never a problem. After 30 years a tank sprung a weeping leak so cut big access in all four tops and epoxied with glass and tank seal. Water is used for everything from ice to flush to the occasional shower, Always sweet and clean and the electric head insures quicker turn around. The manifold allows choice of tank or full drain to bilge
