Fiberglass Water Tanks ???

Has anyone ever heard of osmosis or blistering occurring inside of fiberglass water tanks? A surveyor told me it is possible and if it were to occur a contaminant called “styrene” could bleed into the water supply. I have a Beneteau with 4 large fiberglass tanks and will get the water tested. The test is expensive however so I though I''d ask the Sailnet world first.
