Fresh, clean drinking water is more important than ever for the RVer. Water in RV parks comes from several sources. From well water, to city water, no two parks have the same taste or water quality just like no two households do.
Changing your water filter is as critical in the RV as changing your air filters on your AC unit. If you do not have a water filter built into your RV, then make sure you are using one on the outside for all water coming into the unit.
Culligan makes a pair of inline filters to attach to the outside that are very cost effective and good for up to 2,000 gallons or one RV season.
Camco makes the Evo water filter which is also an outdoor use water filter. It will make a difference in the quality of your water and greatly reduce your chlorine intake. The Hydro-Life HL-170 Under Sink filter is designed for cold water lines under your bathroom or kitchen sink.
If you’re looking for bottled water quality in your RV, the Everpure Purification Kit is the way to go. It removes harmful cysts, bad tastes and odors, plus chlorinates/de-chlorinates and kills bacteria and viruses.
After a long day of being outside, swimming in the lake, or hiking through some tough trails, there’s not a lot of things better than a nice relaxing shower to take all the dirt and stink off. Sometimes, there’s a new stink after we shower, and it’s the water from the shower. That smell of chlorine is hard to get rid of and pretty soon it’s everywhere. Not only does it smell, but it also leaves your skin and hair dry. That’s why I’ve put Culligan’s shower head filter on our shower head. The ISH-200 attaches easily to the existing standard ½-inch shower arm at one end and then to the existing shower head at the other, without affecting the height or positioning of the shower head. The Culligan ISH-200 allows any standard chrome shower head to be converted to a filtered shower head.
With Spring coming just around the corner, it’s time to make sure your RV is in working order and ready to head out for a long weekend. Checking and replacing your water filters is a big step in the right direction.
