My Water Regulator & Filter Setup

Here is my water setup I put together. All hose connections are quick connects. I got the regulator and pressure gauge at Lowes.



Pressure doesn't drop off when water is running, stays at 40psi or whatever the camp ground puts out.

Great set up and it does not strain the water source.

Very nice, but I'm curious about what looks like a clear canister for the filter. I thought it was recommended canisters exposed to sunlight be opaque to minimize stuff growing in the filter.

I like that it all stays together to minimize setup time, but can still be taken apart if needed.

What a work of art ... and functional too! A man could just sit back with a cold beverage and admire that kind of handiwork!

Art,

I like to see how dirty the filter is. It is a sediment filter, so doesn't remove chlorine. I put values on both input and output, so I can keep the filter in water. Store at the house, so I can run fresh water thru it once in a while.

I am interested in your stand the filter is mounted in. Did you make or is that something available at Hardware store?

I used to have one of those stands but ended up giving it away when I changed to a dual filter setup in 2001. I like to have a pre-filter so that the second filter that filters out the bad things doesn't get clogged up with sand and debris. The first filter takes the sand and debris out.
