food grade plastic huh? one thing that bothers me is they drill hole into that tank to install the pipes to the pump and the drain tube. and you can bet the farm on the fact that they do not flush the filings out of the tank. I sure as heck flush mine before I do any thing when I buy a new TT.

I would say that the quality of the water going into the tank is as important as anything. If you properly sanitize the tank, use a hose approved for drinking water that is as good as it can get. Can you guaranty that the water that comes out of your home faucet is as good at can be, maybe, but that is an assumption.

I have drunk from a tank that was not flushed and I'm still here. Safer than holding onto shopping cart handles.

Whoa! 30 second rule?

Wait a minute, I've always heard about a '5' second rule. You mean I've been wasting a good 25 seconds worth of safe edible food?
Still hate those ants crawling on my burger though, they have a slightly bitter taste, especially the red ants.

However, we drink water out of the FW tank, but are more careful about where we fill it up at, more concerned about taste than bacteria. And do now do flush annually, but didn't for our first few RV's.
