After three years with Aegea, our freshwater system is finally safe for drinking water. Just in time too — we’re leaving for a two-month cruise on Monday, and I wasn’t looking forward to carrying gallons of bottled water!
Here’s what we did:
- Emptied and cleaned the tanks
- Treated the entire system with bleach
- Flushed the system with fresh municipal water
- Refilled the tanks using a dedicated drinking-water safe hose and an inline filter
- Drank two glasses of water — I didn’t get sick!
