Our previous motorhome had an inline filter which we had to remember to change frequently, a pain as it wasn't in a very accessible location. We also once had a leak from one of the fittings which caused loads of damp before we found it.

Our current model doesn't have one and rather than retrofitting one to filter all of the water coming from the tank, we simply use a Brita jug filter for any drinking water.

Just an idea, may or may not suit your needs.   agree3

britta jug all day long. filters leak and put undue pressure on the pump. plus the filter lies long before the taps so * Inappropriate Word * gets in after the filter anyway

I've had an earlier version of the above linked filter fitted in the cold water line to the kitchen sink of the last three vans. I change the filter every three years or so. Its very effective and convenient.

I don`t bother with filters in the van, just take 2x5litre water containers for cold water / dog drinking, everything else water wise comes from the on board water tank, do have water filter at home though.

Hi Dieselman60,
Just had to replace my water pump, after 23 years.........I suppose its done a good turn, so replaced it with the same pump. hugegrins Whilst I had the cupboard shelf out, I saw that I had an in-line water filter.......this, I replaced like for like, as it was 3 years old. It was a 12mm. Aquasource Clear Water Filter, from "Danson Marine" at £20.45 item no. 361335040761.
You may get it cheaper, but I was in a hurry......could be a good price though.
Had been using a filter jug previously, but this seems less faffing about........ hugegrins hugegrins
