No way. I trust my tanks and that is all. You have no idea what has been poured into that tank or the last time it was cleaned. The other issue is the quality of the water. You may have a really bad trip if you get a bug in that water. Only bottled stuff for me.

I have been at marinas where someone will use the water hose to rinse their holding tank. Rather than hold the hose over the deck fill, they just drop it in. I only use my own hose for tank fills.
