Folks that invest in a UV system might consider how easy it is to use a valve or two on the tank fill system and clean dockside water as its taken on , and then clean the tank output as its used onboard.

For folks that travel with only city water a rapid dump system is worth installing if replacing a tank.

A 2 inch valve to allow the tank to empty into the bilge will only freshen most bilges.

Towns vary in water quality , so when the FW tank is full of what tastes and smells like the municipal swimming pool , and you get to a better source , a dump and refill is worth the effort.

City water can be killed by clear sections of hose in the water system that is exposed to day light.
