Drinking water idea

Has anyone tried one of these?

Culligan RV-EZ-3 Undersink Water Filter Kit with Faucet - Culligan International RV-EZ-3 - Water Filtration - Camping World

I am tired of lugging jugs or having tea and coffee tasting of chlorine, I have discounted Brita equipment the they don't make an under counter and the faucet type seems to me pointless to filter washing up water.

Any comments greatly appreciated. Thank you

CAMCO Water Filter (Walmart/Camping World) has a hose spigot to RV waterfilter. It will filter your entire water system not just "drinking" water. You can also use if if your filling up your fresh water tank.

The R/O system requires water pressure to work,so the good thing is you install a bladder tank and leave the pump on,or hook up to city water. Youroo!!

APEX has a small one on sale: $259.00
Portable Reverse Osmosis - Premium Counter-Top, RO Systems & Drinking Water Filters | APEC Water

For the price/space/hookup hassles I'll stick with my CAMCO.

Just installed my RO system in my trailer today, 5 stage system with a bladder and works like a charm. Just as pure if not better then most bottled water out there.

No way we would use any water source from the trailer to drink. Any idea what kind of plastic or what chemicals leach from the tanks or lines?

Bottled water to drink and to make coffee. Campground water to shower and wash dishes. At least dish washing is hot water.

That filter contains carbon which does remove chlorine, bad tastes, and odors. The carbon will exhaust after X amount of throughput...
