Water filter

K looking for tips on a water filter system. I currently use a camco inline filter for the whole camper. Works well...but I do notice a pressure drop in the water..and I still don't drink it. I was thinking I'd like a filter under my kitchen sink for drinking water , to cut back on the amount of water I am buying, and not using a filter for the rest of the camper...or perhaps a whole unit filter that won't drop the pressure and makes the water taste good...I'm going to look at home depot I think I reall seeing a home sink filter by Brita.

Anyway , does anyone have a really good setup they like, no bad tastes , do you filter all your water to the coach or just drinking water?

Any ideas, tips, suggestions would be great. I'd like to get it straight over the winter for next season..

We use an inline filter at the water spigot too. Then we use a PUR countertop filter for drinking water. Been doing it that way for years and never got sick from drinking campground water.

First off you must have a LOT of contaminants in your incoming water supplyor you use a Lot of water. The inline should last for several1000 gals. Next the drinking water issue will start with a Osmosis system and depending on the water Test go up from there. The more you want to be Pure,the more it will cost. Youroo!!

Try this site. A good regulator (263A) and a single canister filter will give you decent water and still have great water flow. A double canister would give you drinkable water wherever you go and the higher priced regulators will not rust as fast.

Alright thanks for the site. So if I get a double canister with a nice regulator I'll be able to achieve good flow rats and drinkable water? No hose taste? Just want to cut back on he amount of bottled water I am buying and toting around with me. Thanks again
