I've read where some people don't and i don't understand why not.
If you have sanitized your system what is there to be afraid of??

Yah, been drinking from it for 4.5 yrs, Full time, no problem. I use the Brita, going to replace it with the new filtration jug when I get the chance. and if in a bad tasting water area, use "Sweet Water' to add as I fill up... Sometimes it's a little off, but the Brita helps... Just have to clean it occasionally as it turns green, heheh, from the sun through the window...
Other than that, no problem-o... Thinking I should sanitize when the opportunity arises...

Never have. Why take a chance with the little bit of water you actually use for drinking.

I mostly drink bottled water but have no fear of the water in my fresh tank. For instance I cook with it, make coffee, rinse my tooth brush etc.

I sanitize my tank and drink the water after going through a Brita filter. I cannot imagine trying to carry bottled water, now when I was a full timer for a couple of years and often take trips that last several months and are in remote areas. I have a hard enough time getting food without worrying about trying to buy and carry large quantities of bottled water.

We drink filtered water brought from home. We do everything else with water from the tank.

Taste matters.

I have a smallish camper with only a 20 gallon FW tank. I drink bottled water and use the tank for washing.
