Any recommendations?

Out of curiosity, how big are your water tanks?

I ask because I was going to install one, we carry 175 gallons of water. Used to last a few days.

I found by managing water use, I was able to squeeze 10-14 days out (mainly by controlling shower water use by turning off in between lathering and using a slower stream of water when washing dishes), including a couple rinses of the boat upon mooring arrival

Now we are drinking from the tanks so will have to see how long it lasts, hoping 7 days.
