I was on a boat last year with steel tanks
- it had a of some kind filter under the sink and the crew drank the water - the chemical taste was very strong - it was RO water but it was undrinkable due to the chemical taste..
I don't now if epoxies eventually cures and doesn't give off chemicals or if the water approved epoxies were not used on this boat.
