Maybe it's just doing what it's supposed to do?

If there is iron it the water supply many times it will precipitate out after sitting for a while and will get trapped by the filter.

Trash in water line

In each fresh water hook up in RV parks always flush the RV PARKS water line
and your RV fresh water hose real good before connecting to filter or RV.


This is to insure you are removing any sedimate/ trash/rust from the parks
fresh water line.


I have hooked my fresh water hose to some RV parks water supply and in flushing I have found at some parks quite a bit of rust/ trash being flushed
out of the line.

I had this happen when I stayed at rv resorts that had old holding tanks for their well water. The filter is doing what it's supposed to do.

Iron in the water. Good for your red cell count.

Iron in your water is going to harm anyone. Years ago when people had iron deficiencies they would put a nail through an apple and leave it sit over night or a day before eating the apple. Another remedy was a tablespoon of sorghum molasses daily.

I think that Water Pure makes a fine cartridge. They stand by their product. I would try to contact them directly and show them the photo. They may opt to replace.

Why? The rust is not coming out of the filter....it's in the water. Don't think Water Pure is going to take responsibility for what's in the water.....
