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.

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
