Clean Water on the Go: Why Water Filtration is Essential for RV Travel

Water is a vital resource for any traveler, and is especially important those traveling in an RV or motorhome full-time or seasonally. However, not all water sources are safe for consumption, and drinking contaminated water can lead to serious health issues. That's why it's essential to have a reliable water filtration system in your RV or motorhome to ensure access to clean and safe water throughout your journey.


There are different types of water filtration systems available for RVs and motorhomes. Our top recommendations include 3-stage filtration with UltraViolet light treatment, and reverse osmosis systems. These systems remove impurities from water and provide clean and safe drinking water.


3-stage filtration systems, as you can probably guess, typically include three steps of filtration. The first stage filters out large particles, such as sediment and debris. The second removes chlorine, bad tastes, and odors, while the third stage uses a carbon black filter to remove remaining contaminants. We recommend essentially a pre-stage UV light treatment, which uses UV rays to kill bacteria.


Our highest recommended water filtration system is reverse osmosis (or RO). RO systems use a semi-permeable membrane to remove impurities from water. The water is pressurized, and the impurities are removed as the water passes through the membrane. RO systems are highly effective at removing contaminants such as bacteria, chemicals, salts, nitrates, arsenic, chlorine, and pesticides. In our opinion, water filtered through this method tastes even better than most bottled waters.


While having a water filtration system is essential, it's also important to have it inspected and maintained regularly by a certified technician. They can ensure that the system is working correctly and identify any issues that may arise. They can also recommend upgrades or replacements if necessary to ensure that your system is providing the best possible water quality.
