    have gone to replace the insulation around my fresh water tank drainage pipe today, and noticed the pipe is rubber, not plastic. It looks like a pipe on the back of a washing machine, yet on my old van it was plastic. seemed strange, but doesn't leak or anything, so should i change it ? We dont drink the tank water unless it,s been boiled and cant say i have ever had a taste of rubber.....But any advice would be helpful...

    If it isnt broke why fix it.
    The drainage pipe, even if it was a lead pipe, will have no effect on the water in the tank
