Flexible Water Tank Installation

Help appreciated: Nauta Flexible tanks are not made with vents. Question: Can the tank be installed with with a hard coupled connection to dockside water ( using a 35psi pressure regulator)? The present plumbing system, using the boat''s original hard tank which must be replaced, succesfully uses a ball valve T which diverts the pressure reduced suppply to either the tank for filling, or, for dockside convenience, to the cold water supply behind the pressure pump. The issues seem to include: Can the tank handle the pressure? Will the tank develop an air-lock, or will that simply dissipate out through the tank''s outlet line which runs to the in-line pump?
