I have drank well water all my life as well.
So drinking well water from my camper is harmful how?
Years and years of drinking water from the camper tap hasnt killed me yet.

People should be more concerned about drinking monster energy drink.

Just saying and have a good day.

We drank well water for years at our home in Portugal, never a problem and it tasted great, wish we could have that here. But my post was about getting rid of the chlorine taste in city water, that's where charcoal filters come in useful.

Popbeavers- I guess you must do some really remote camping. Guess you are talking about drinking water from streams/creeks and such.

We always camp with at least water and electric. I'm out on "roughing it" anymore than that, I guess from my army days!

Always a learning experiance about how others camp!
25 miles of dirt fireroad to the nearest pavement.

5 miles of pavement to the campground which has water.

30 miles of pavement to the nearest building, the town of Likely, population 63.

There are no wells in the forest. We drink the spring water. A pipe sticking out of the side of the hill.

When boon docking we carry the filter, just in case.

When riding the ATVs in the forest we will sometimes take it with us, just in case.
