We have a friend that take leftover water bottles and fills them back up with water and sticks them into the deep freezer
. When its time for sundowners she takes them out and cuts them in thick slices. You get ice cubes that last multiple drinks and you cut up your trash at the same time!
Yes, we drink our fiberglass
tank water. Right now we filter it through an RV filter and then always treat with a large dose of bleach. We filter through a charcoal filter that gets replaced every 30 days. At least, this is the latest method. So far we have not grown any additional limbs.
We are discovering that the trick is to keep using the water outof our 40 gallon tank so when we get our watermaker
we will decommission the 100 gallon tank and put in a smaller, lighter plastic one to make room for storage
We are replacing all our old hose with PEX.
