Re: Drinking water tank water.

Will the water filtration / purification remove the odor from marine anti-freeze due to winterization?
Two years ago, we purchased our sailboat late in the year and could not sail her out until the early spring. So we had the local small marina winterize our systems but apparently he dumped several gallons of marine anti-freeze into the holding tank instead of draining the tank and filling the lines. I have drain our tank, over and over, flushed the system out but still can't get that odor out of the water.
