potable water systems

Hey All,
This will be the first of many questions that I pose here regarding my new found obsession. The PO of The 81' US27 I bought has never used the fresh water system (9 years) so I am betting that it will be pretty tough to get it cleaned out.
My question...For day sails and if the dogs take to it, the "occasional" overnight how often is it really needed? Also, what are some of the "issues" that you have seen with a potable water system that has not been used in so long on a 30 year old boat.


P.S. - The head is saltwater flush and replaced recently
