The quality of the water we drink is important for our health and well-being. While we often don’t think about water filtration and water filters when we are at home and connected to mains water, when we travel around in a caravan, RV or boat, the quality of our water becomes a higher priority.
The taste, smell and safety of water can vary greatly from water source to water source. For example, there is a huge difference in the taste and hardness of bore water as compared to rainwater. Travellers often find they don’t like the taste or smell of water from different locations, or worse, become sick from drinking or bathing in contaminated water. Van and boat owners don’t always have the luxury of topping up their water supply from a filtered or treated water source, so it becomes essential to take responsibility for your own water filtration and water treatment while travelling.
Think Water has an excellent range of water filters suitable for use in Caravans, RVs and Boats. Here we highlight some of the most popular water filters from Puretech, one of our preferred suppliers.
