so we are currently out right now...and the wife isnt sure yet if the faucet can be drinking water...


how can i show her?


we have the blue camco filter in line at the spigot from camp. then it goes thru the 'essential' double filter from rvwaterfilterstore.com website, then into the double standard soft water filter.



this would be safe to drink now right?

We can't answer only because we don't know the source of your water.
But you could always give it a try, and show her that it's okay.

I would add 7 more filters in line and then boil the water for at least 15 minutes

She could always just drink beer instead.

If you have sanitized your fresh water tank once a year, and filled up at your known good home or a city water source, you are good to go. A camp ground is unknown. Most are. I use a three sage water filter system, Clearsource Ultra, and a UV water purifier system. Not a problem for us. We also have an On-The-Go water softener.

Key really is where did you fill the tank and how has the tank been maintained?

Water varies a lot from different parts of the country and people are accustomed to the taste or lack of

The majority of tap water is fine and good quality unless you are in a draught area or a known situation like Flint MI was in

We as a society have developed a taste for bottle water which has minimal taste so they vendors had added minerals or flavorings to keep us hooked and buying it by the case

My primary reason for the RO is to protect the Aqua Hot from scaling as we travel in the Midwest where the water hardness if very high

Actually like a bit of water hardness to brew the perfect coffee

People that haven't had the pleasure of experiencing bad water quality really don't get the concern at all

This was our Christmas present to ourselves ..works very well.
I plan on adding a 2 micron filter in addition to the 5 micron and 20 micron sacrificial (the blue one).. The water softener is the bonus.(sudsy showers!)

It depends on how much water flow, GPM, your filter system allows to flow. I use a 6 GMP lamp system. It is 120VAC. The cost is not cheep at $420.00, but not to have to worry about your water is priceless. The UV lamp in a house needs to be replaced every year, but unless you use it full time, you can change it out every two or three years.

VIQUA S5Q-PA Model UV System 6 GPM

Thre is a 5GMP 12VDC one as well at $470.00.

I have used UV lamps for water final treatment for years. They do have to be replaced eventually but they actually decay over time and or hours used. So given the way you use it I would think in the RV world they would last a very long time

At the ranch we had nasty alluvial water so used the UV and a flow switch that turned the lamp on and off when the well pushed water into the pressure tank
