Filtering your drinking water is absolutely essential to your health and well being. This is true whether you are connected to city water, or traveling around connected to water systems everywhere. Let’s face it, there is no way to be completely sure what’s in your water, how it has been processed, what has been intentionally added to it(fluoride) and what the water treatment plant was unable to remove.
Think about this for just a second. All waste water in the grid is processed and sent back to you as clean drinking water. This INCLUDES the toilet and sewer water from everyone else in the city. Drinking your own filtered toilet water is hard enough to imagine, now imagine drinking everyone else’s toilet water. There is talk now of pharmaceuticals that were flushed down the toilet which can’t be removed from the water.
The only answer is to drink ONLY filtered water. The only way to make sure you are getting clean, pure water is with a Reverse Osmosis system. All other methods, except for distillation, still leave a lot of stuff in the water. A good RO system stacks a multi-stage cartridge system on top of the RO membrane filtration to insure the most pure water possible.
When it comes to RO systems in RV’s there are 2 main considerations:
1: Waste Lines & Deposit buildup in your grey water tank: Everything that can’t pass through the RO membrane is flushed out a drain or waste line. This includes all dissolved solids like calcium and lime. In Arizona, with hard water, there is a lot of this in the water. My kitchen grey water tank and blade valve became clogged up with calcium deposits within 1 year of standard RO system use. For this reason, you must run the waste line to the furthest possible point toward where the sewer lines exit the RV. Under no circumstances should you drain it into the grey water tank itself. drain it downstream of a tank otherwise it will accumulate in the tank, reducing it’s capacity and eventually clogging the blade valve.
2:Location/Accessibility/Space: Many RV sink cabinets are small and don’t have much room for a full size RO system. For this reason, I highly recommend the Watts Premier RO system, which has cartridges that plug in with the press of a button. The system takes up less space and is much easier to change cartridges on if you have to install in a hard to reach place.
