Agree with the others, I use a filter at spigot to keep any sediment out and use bottled water (2 1/2 gallon jugs that we fill up at home) for ice maker, tea and coffee.

We use one of the blue in line camco water filters but then put it through a Britta for drinking, coffee, and cooking.
Since our home has a really good well, we're kinda water snobs, bottled water tastes like nothing so we don't use it. Besides, when in America did we start paying to use bottled water??

Early to mid 70's.


I blame consumerism.

We use that exact filter to help capture any sediment, and it is effective at removing some of the odors associated with some waters, as well as improving the taste....however we don't rely on it to make drinking water safe, so we use it for dishes, showers but bottled water for drinking and coffee, tea, etc.

We use a filter & drink from the tap except when we are in Myrtle Beach, there the campground provides purified water (free) You just go get as much as you want bring your containers The city water tastes salty but won't hurt ya ( Do shower & wash dishes from the tap) .......... but the purified water has no salty taste .

I drink the water in the camper, double filtered. I spray the spigot with chlorine cleaner prior to hooking up, just to ease any doubts.

Us too. We do by some bottle water for convenience, but don't worry at all about drinking from the tap and we've never had any issues.

I try to minimize the use of city water when I camp. I just never know how the pipes in the campground are kept. I use bottled water to drink, make coffee and non boiled cooking.

I use bottled water or a water jug and fill that up from home. Don't like the plastic pipe smell.
