In Texas, near oil production facilities, the water tastes off. We bought a Brita Water Pitcher (Brita Small 5 Cup Metro Water Pitcher with Filter – BPA Free – Turquoise) to remove or at least reduce crude oil taste from our drinking water. This approach generally works well and seems to be more environmentally friendly than using bottled water.
Then late last summer we were camping at Garner State Park. In the past, when we camped at Garner, the water was good but this time the water was brownish from sediment. Our Brita Water filter was unable to remove the sediment. The water tasted horrible. It tasted like dirt.
We realized we needed to filter the water before it entered our Camper. There are a number of decent RV water filtration solutions available in the market today. To keep things simple and small, we chose the Camco 40019 Extra Large Filter and Hose Protector Tastepure Water from Amazon.
The filter does reduce water pressure a tiny bit. More importantly, this particular model not only removes odors and funky tastes – it removes sediment as well.
Hope to see you on the road ahead!
