I just want to point out that I have Much Further researched this and want to admit I was wrong about it. I hope no one else bought into the hype as I had from receiving prior incorrect information regarding the safety of drinking from aluminum tanks ( especialy older possibly slightly corroded ones) I am big enough to admit when I am wrong...
Aluminum tanks are no big deal other then the water may have a taste to it.
