A reverse osmosis filter will take care of that.
Drinking water, and for anything you drink like makin' coffee or, you may be into the Koolaid.....that's the way to go.

Harold was correct. The 8% bleach solution (jug from the store) played havoc on the aluminum overnight. It left the float, needle valve and brass portion unscathed.

Next is to have one of my sons 3D plastic print a "container" that has the volume I need and mount ability of the float and needle valve.
Ever think about why they use anodes on a boat and exactly what an anode does? You are blindly playing with fire. Good luck buddy.

Cathodic protection is used in municipal water systems and hot water tanks as well as boats. We had them in all of our fire engines that had steel tanks and now that the tanks are poly they are in the form of suction strainers for our large 6" intake strainers. It is amazing how fast they will deteriorate due to electrolysis.

Just let go of it, it will eventually unplug itself.
