RV Replacement Water Filters
Are you ready to get in the RV and go see the world? Whether it’s for a weekend retreat, a camping trip, or a drive across the country, the RV is the perfect way to go. Just remember that when you get ready to go, don’t forget your RV water filter!
Water Filtration for the RV
Not all RV parks have chlorinated city water. Some RVers may go to parks that are on untreated wells. It is important to ensure that you are drinking treated water, even if you have to have a water filtration system to do it. Untreated water can be exposed to health-risking elements from animal or human wastes, chemicals, or harmful bacteria. Drinking water with harmful contaminants such as cryptosporidium (a microscopic parasite often found in untreated water sources) can cause illness and sometimes even death for those with weakened immune systems.
If the water is usually not too bad, or if you are concerned with space or cost, you can filter only the water you cook with and drink. If you are concerned about health-threatening contaminants, then applying a higher level of filtration to the drinking water supply might be in order. You may want to filter all of the water you use and then add more filtration to the drinking water to provide an added measure of safety.
How They Work
Many RV manufacturers install drinking water filters, and they are typically one of two different styles. The first style is an in-line filter installed under the sink. The other style of filter installed by some RV manufacturers is a one-cartridge, under-sink system in which the cartridge screws into a metal filter head.
The type of filter media that is used is really dependent on the type of filtration system you have. Different media remove different contaminants, so the type of filter you need is dependent on your water filtration needs. For example, some filters are designed specifically to remove sediment, others to remove tastes and odors, and some to remove strong chemicals. Choosing the filter system you need for your RV is the first step to getting clean, pure water for your RV. Just remember to keep your filters regularly replaced; they can become clogged after a while, decreasing the filter’s efficiency, so keeping them regularly replaced and well maintained prolongs filter life and increases filtration efficiency.
