Our tank does not filter really small stuff like bacteria. The water comes from a rain-water fed tributary of a stream, 25 kilometers up into the mountains. The source is protected from the odd, mad, pig hunter that may travel those inhospitable areas.

I know Legionnaires disease can be caught by inhaling steam or mist of affected water, and also another nasty disease that comes from inhaling fish tank water. I have never heard of either being found in house water tanks.

Every now and then we have the tank water tested and it has always been pristine.

This was the story. The bad news is it's so rare no-one knows about it, but I suppose the good news is it's so rare no-one knows about it. http://www.abc.net.au/austory/content/2015/s4338006.htm
