We have been set up at a local park for the past week. The camp water is clean but has a metallic taste so we carried water from... home for drinking and coffee. After attaching the filter, the metallic taste was completely gone and we now use the campground water for all drinking and cooking purposes.
For the 2003 deer hunting season here in Central Texas, I set up my 31 ft. Prowler 5th for the 2-month season. Knowing that I wou...ld be hooked up to a well-water faucet, I bought a TastePURE Inline Water Filter and made the water quite useable. You can't beat it for the price!
My daughter has hard water and smelly sulphur water at her cottage where we camp, and this filter takes care of both, we don't ha...ve to carry fresh water any longer, This filter eliminates all odor and taste. I keep it in the fridge when we are not using it.. The price is awesome also.. AND our coffee tastes great!!
I use these filters in-line with the hose that I use to wash the MH and other vehicles that we own. It reduces spotting considera...bly. Although the MH has a built in water filter, I also use these filters to reduce contaminants when filling the reservior. It allows our dog to always have water "from home" eliminating possible bowel problems caused by contaminants not found in our local water.
I live in my 5th whl. and use municipal water year round. I placed the filter at the main along with a pressure valve set at 30 lb...s. I have found that I have to change the filter every 2 years with only having to clear the filter screen annually. You'll get more than your money's worth with this type of water filter system. Thanks
I have used the Taste Pure filter for a couple seasons now and found it to work very well. It is less expensive than the Hydrolife... filter, has the same filtration capabilities
and has a higher flow rate as well. I have used both, but find the Taste Pure to fit my budget better.
This is the first time we have used this filter. It cost less than the replacement cartridge for our other Camco Filter. We use an...other filter on the "drinking water faucet" after this one. We used to have to filter the water with a Brita after other filters. Now just the two filters is all we are using. Now the bad. The little hose is poorly made and came apart at one of the crimped ends, water all over the ground. I had to go into the Campground's RV supply and purchase a better one. Camco needs to upgrade.
I just used my water filter for the first time at Thousand Trails Pio Pico. They had huge problems with the water in the park afte...r all the flooding from the rain in Jan..... I first hooked up the hose directly and sampled the water via a visual test. Water was brownish and had a slight odor. After connecting the filter the water was clear, no odor and it had very little affect as to the water pressure since I run it off of a 40psi water regulator.
In short it worked well on my new Fleetwood PopUP!!!!
We bought our first one of these filters at Shipps RV Park in Chattanooga. It was the first time we had seen it. This was in Summe...r of 2003. We have used this brand filter ever since. It removes any particles of rust, scale, sand etc. Water quality is very good. No odor or taste when drinking. One filter will last you about a year with 9 out of 12 months useage. It will stop allowing water flow when it is full and it's life is done. ALWAYS carry a spare to replace the one in use if it should shut down when you least expect it. Good item, good price. We will continue to use them.
I've been using the older model of this filter for years. They were good
and this seems even better. Just remember to let it f...low for a
moment before filling your tank to get rid of excess carbon. Be aware
that this or no other filter will take out calcium. This will remove the
nasty rust and sediment that is present in any water system of
We have used this same filter in our travel trailer & our fifth wheel. One per year & it keeps all of the water in the coach smell...ing and tasting great, regardless of where we are. i wouldn't travel without it.
Have used this brand of filter for several years. Love the taste of the water when using this
filter gets the well water and sul...fur taste and smell out. Very happy with GPM flow and
filtration out team it up with the 90 degree faucet so even getting water outside the trailer is
good. Use several times a year up to a week or two at a time. I discard every Nov. when
we winterize the trailer and replace our filter every spring, I purchase on sale.
As full-timers, we depend on water filters. TastePureKDF
works great. Our filters last three months of everyday use.
People have... problems when they: (1) don't use a proper
water hose (white); (2) don't flush the hose with bleach
periodically; (3) allow water to sit for weeks without
rinsing the hose; (4) don't follow directions for
installation and refuse to do an initial flush of excess
carbon, etc. Hand tightening is enough when one uses teflon
tape on the joins. If you're camped in sandy water areas or
poor well water you can't expect the filter to solve those
problems. For extra caution and coffee, we use an
additional filter in the kitchen.
Was using the Hydrolife filters for a few years, but the gpm rate was low. Switched to this filter and was impressed with the flow... rate. Filters a lot of the same stuff as more expensive ones but at a better price.
I live in my travel trailer year round. So drinking clean, great tasting water is important to me. The TastePure Inline Water Fi...lter does a great job of filtering the bacteria and impurities that can be found in many campsites water supply. During the winter months though, when temperatures reach 10-20 degrees, it is necessary to use that heater tape on your water supply to keep the water lines from freezing. I have found that the heater tape burns a hole thru the plastic water filter, so I recommend removing the water filter for the winter months or you will have to replace it more often than you might care to replace it.
We've been using these filters for 3 years now, changing them out yearly. Diminished flow means time to change your filter.Ours la...sts about 80 days of camping depending on the quality of the source.
Be sure to flush it before first use- otherwise you get
carbon in your pipes. Just replaced it after 70 days on the
road- just f...or peace of mind. We use a brass elbow instead
of the short hose for rig attachment.
I have used these filters, changing them every 3 months, for
approximately 2 years now as a whole RV water filter. It works the...
best of all I have found. It is a little tricky getting it to seal without
breaking the plastic srew fittings though.
We used this for the first time on our trip to northern
Michigan, which has plenty of iron in well water, enough to
stain your r...ig if you aren't careful. Using this filer you
would never know it. The water tasted great - no odor or iron.
I have tried a couple of other RV water filters. The TastePure KDF/Carbon water filter is
as good as the best I have tried, cons...iderably better than most. The price has them all
We have been using them exclusively for about the past 7-8 years. I used the first one
for two seasons, after the second season noticed a reduction in water flow, so I replaced
the filter and realized it was suppose to be replaced each year.
Hand tighten only and have never had a leak.
Really does its job.
I understand why they say to replace each season but I have run mine for two thus far.
Inexpensive and it WORKS! I had another b...rand that went out after one trip. Far to many variables to worry about as to why one failed and this just keeps going. BTW the other brand cost twice as much
I purchased this filter to improve the taste and smell of chlorinated water that is in most
RV parks. It works well, but remembe...r to flush out for a minute or until the excess carbon
is gone. Then, hook up to your water line after the regulator. You can use some tape to help seal fittings and don't over-tighten, as the plastic ends may crack from
excessive force. It will last an entire season or two depending on use.
When I'm hooked up to the park's water, I use my hose and find that after the first day my
water tastes like my hose, yuck! I lo...oked at CW for a filter and found this affordable one
and decided to give it a try. Love it! Water is tasteless like it should be and the
flow and pressure is as if it wasn't there. I'm heading back to get more while they're on
sale when I get home and stock up for the next couple of years.
Perfect for city water or filling my holding tank. The flow rate is fantastic. This is the best protection to GPM ratio that I cou...ld find. I will be using the same filter from now
on. I use a sink filter for drinking water still because this will not remove 100% of the taste and contaminant issues. It provides optimum service for my needs.
I've been using the TastePure KDF filter for three years now and I find them to be a great
value and product. I replace the filt...er every year and just don't have to worry about the
water we get exposed to at any campground. It is a great product.
Tried it on our last trip. Works well. Doesn't reduce water pressure. Water taste fine. Be sure to read the instructions and flush... all your faucets when you first connect it; you
will get carbon dust in the water initially.
I would not camp without one on my water line. I always carry a spare too. Word of caution
though, make sure you flush the filte...r with water before you hook it up to your unit. If you
don't, you will get carbon in your sink, toilet etc.. :-0
I have used one each year of full timing, always know that the water system in my RV uis protected from sand, rust, solid particle...s, and the chorine is remove for a while, I think you get the most for your dollar using this filter.
We've only used this once since we got it, but the difference in the taste (or lack of) in
the water was amazing. We don't drink... glasses of water straight from the camper
faucets, but we use it to cook with, brush our teeth, and take our medicine. I only
noticed a very slight taste to the water after installing the water filter. Very much worth
I am replacing my used filter. Will continue to use this filter as it does the job for water quality. I had to remove it for the W...inter because it is on the outside of my travel trailer and might freeze. However, I will put it back on in the Spring.
Pros: Easy Setup , Excellent Price Versus Performance , Excellent Water Quality
I've used this filter before and like the fact that it has lasted a full season (2 camping trips). It
would probably last for mo...re trips but I always buy a replacement at the start of each
season. Does an excellent job.
I did not notice any reduction in flow or pressure by using this. Simple to set up and the
water tastes fine. I wasn't looking f...or a filter to produce great tasting water as I bring my own
drinking water but have been in camps where the water smells bad and is not good for
even brushing teeth. great product and will buy another when when needed.
Glad to use it and price is good but be careful (read why)

Works as intended but be sure to run water out of it before using every time as black
charcoal particles will come out almost ev...ery time at first. After letting it run a minute or
two then go ahead and fill up. Would be 5 stars but my home filters I have don't allow this
much charcoal to come out as if it did my ice cubes would look black.
First time user of this product but I have to say it works
very well. My goals are to keep all my tanks filtered and
this little... filter is relatively cheap and does the job, no
smells from well water like some other campers I know
experienced. Just remember to follow the instructions and
run water through it before using it to kick out the filter
sediment that is just laying in the filter, it will make a big
difference when you finally connect it to your RV.
I go camping in south Georgia and Florida quite often, so I wanted a filter to remove the sulfur taste from the portable water at ...the campgrounds I go to. This filter works great. As others have mentioned, you do want to flush the filter on your first use. If not, you will get a grayish tinted water from the excess carbon. After flushing, the filter runs clear and does a great job of removing the sulfur. I intend to buy one every year.
Works, but you'll be happier with larger version of same

This little filter works great to remove funky smells from shore water, but it's too small to provide adequate flow if you're tryi...ng to get anything done quickly. It will at least double the time needed to fill your fresh tank. The showers suffer similarly. We keep it aboard for the rare times we find exceptionally fragrant water sources and for that we're quite happy. If we had to use it more frequently a larger filter would be mandatory.
These have an average 3 month useful life.
