Why do I need to filter the water when traveling?
A filter is the first stage of looking after your water tanks and plumbing in any RV or camper. This means filtering the water before it gets to the tank and even putting it inline in the hose if you are on mains water too.
Its job is to stop the sediment , dirt and bits getting into the tank, while also removing the chemicals, some metals and most of the biology in the water supply. This removes the worries of what is getting into the tank and plumbing system of the RV. I have seen someone block up their shower head 3 x times in one week from dirt and grit getting into the water system even on mains pressure. A filter will prevent this from happening. You cannot get at the rubbish once it is in the system or tanks.
