You most likely have a metal faucet wherever you get your water for the tank. The water may take a week or more of sitting in metal before it reaches your house so worry about it passing a metal valve is not really worthwhile.

+1 on the above unless the valve will be siting in the tank it's effects on the water are entirely negligible.
