Should you choose to add fresh water, it would be wise to install a -Y-Valve allowing you to use sea water when appropriate; and, a dedicated fresh water tank for the head (perhaps a bladder tank). Do not connect the head to the same fresh water system that might be used for food preparation or consumption. The consequences are obvious.
