Fiberglass watertanks cleaning + coating
I have an older (1978) fiberglass boat with a 100 gallon water tank glassed into the hull. I can access the inside of the tank through 2 access hatches. The tank is currently quite solid, no blisters, not leaking, etc... but is quite dirty.
Are there any products that would be good for cleaning this with (something good for a potable water supply)?
Are old fiberglass tanks of this vintage reasonably safe for storing drinking water?
Should I attempt to apply any type of coating to the interior of the tank? (it currently appears to have none (or the coating itself is thin and not readily apparent)
Does anyone have a recommended filter setup for drinking water onboard a low energy use cruising boat that would filter out any possible contaminants from a fiberglass tank?
Any information on old fiberglass tanks for drinking water purposes would be excellent.
Thanks in advance,
