Question Water Purification System

I am trying to find a location to install to install a Everpure water purification system and find that the location around the kitchen area sink is so very limited. Does anyone have a suggestion as to where and how to make this installation.
Thanks

I've installed the General Ecology system and we like it lots. Read the specs on their site and decide if it might work for you. We chose it over the Everpure because we did not want to be washing or showering with chlorine (which you add to your fresh tank with the Everpure). We pre-filter all water entering the fresh water tank and use the General Ecology to filter our drinking water - no chlorine required.

Here's pics of the install I did on my 22' CCD.

That looks like a nice system. Something I have to do also, not that mine is bad, but it sat for 4 years so I am going to replace it as a precautionary measure.

Thanks for your information and pictures. A real neat installation. My problem is tht my Everpure unit is about a foot long and must be mounted in the vertical position. I should have done a little more research be pruchasing the unit. If I use this Everpure unit it will have to be plumbed in the closet next to the pantry slideout. Thanks again.

Another old post, just wondering where the art of filtration has gone since 2004.

Can anyone point me to a review, or care to share their experiences with systems used to filter drinking water at the kitchen sink? What's "top rated" these days?

Regards,
Aage

I use a top grade filter purchased from Camping World. No installation. Fits right on the outside hose.Water Filtration - Camping World.

So, that would be the Hydro LifeŽ RV/Marine Exterior Water Filter? Looks a lot simpler than I would have thought something like this would be. I looked at the link for the one in the posts above (Nature-Pure by General Ecology) and pricing is almost identical.

Your idea of filtering the water before it enters the on-board holding tank does seem simpler, although the poster above, "Xray" states that he does this too. Would there be a need to do it twice then, do you think?

Everpure makes a 1/2 size filter cartridge.. You need to change it twice as often, but it will fit in a smaller space.

Thanks, Excella. I'm beginning to get the idea that when we get into a trailer, we will start automatically thinking of the cubic feet requirement for everything we contemplate buying, and since we will definitiely be part-timers at first, they look like a good idea, despite the premium price.

OK, I think get it now for water treatment: it's very simple. Spend about seventy bucks and it's done, replace cartridges as necessary.

Thanks, all!

cheers,
Aage
