New Boat Owner - Questions about water purification

I've just purchased a new boat and I had a few questions about water filtration and purification. First of all I'd like to get a "pre-filter" of some kind, something to attach to a dockside hose. Looks like there are some cheap ones and relatively expensive ones. Any recommendations? I'd also like to get an under the sink filtration/purification unit as well. I've read some posts recommending the Seagull IV. Any experience with this filter or are there other recommendations? The prior owner told me they would add a small amount of chlorine when they filled the tanks (stainless steel tanks) but he was 81 and not very clear on the ratio of chlorine to water. Is chlorine a good "biocide" additive or is there something else I should consider adding to the water when I fill the tanks? Or maybe not add anything? Any comments or thoughts would be appreciated. Thx
