Made up my own with a couple clear 10" canisters from Amazon on a homemade bracket along with a few fittings, including two for garden hose thread. The filter media - a couple of 5 micron carbon block Home Depot filters with a 5 gallon/minute flow. There is, if necessary,media available that will filter just about every thing from lead, mercury, cysts and other nasties but they get very expensive and usually have a reduced flow rate to about a gallon/minute unless you go to a 20" canister version.

We have also used the Camco in line filters while traveling and they too work fine for at least 2-3 weeks on the road. We also carry a couple gallon jugs of bottled water, JIC

Mine is a canister home water filter that I mounted behind the area where you hook up all the exterior accessories. Got extra filters but I expect to get about a season before changing it.

I have seen several studies that show bottled water has more cancer causing elements than most tap water. Report on National News recently, do not remember which channel. Fake News?????? Plastic from bottles leach into water especially with elevated temperatures in warehouse storage and delivery trucks

I got flowpure one, I hard piped it in to the pex plumbing, and installed a bypass for it, just in case. I replace the element each year with a Camco , not sure of the model, but it is high flow. No issues in side. I still use bottled water most of the time, but this water is drinkable and has no foul taste...

I used the one that came in the starter pack with our camper and cut it to the length I needed. I've just bought the pex crimp tool along with the fittings and my "hard line" it to see how I like it.

It's pre-wired for solar and this is the connection.

Sure did.

I used it to hold a piece of wood on the back side(inside action area) of the wall so when I drilled through it the formica in the action area wouldn't fracture out.

We are giving serious thought to this product in addition to filtration:
