I have a ten gallon tank on the pump, and am considering some folks advice of reserving that water for showering and dish washing while carrying a 5 or 6 gallon portable jug for drinking water.
The idea being about how a portable container is easier to keep clean and sanitary over time than a built-in, which will require routine chlorine, iodine, or hydrogen peroxide treatment to quell any critters that might set up camp in the built-in tank.
I understand the simplicity of the portable jugs and I am somewhat paranoid about drinking contaminated water or bad food
That being said, we full timed in an RV for a while and have a built in 20 gallon tank in our van. We just do a standard bleach treatment after de-winterizing it each year and make sure to use a dedicated hose with a good water filter when we fill up. The water always tastes fine and we have had no issues at all. Pretty much every Class C and A RV in the country uses built in tanks. Just putting this out there. I know we each have our own take or preferences on this stuff.
