Well, it’s wintertime now and time to take stock on what maintenance needs to be done to your RV for the spring, summer and fall travel seasons ahead. Do tires need to be replaced? Any suspect areas where water leaks might sprout after a summer cloudburst? Are the batteries all up to snuff? Does your RV have a water filter system? Some newer rigs may have them installed, but the quality of those existing motorhome water systems may be no more effective than the water pitcher in your refrigerator. Checking into your RV’s water supply is one of the most important tasks for proper RV maintenance. Every RVer, from full-timer to part-timer, knows that having safe, clean drinking water is imperative.

Is Campground Water Safe to Drink?

Campground water sources often come complete with grit and gunk (no extra charge) and very possibly other serious contaminants you absolutely do not want to drink. Oftentimes, it’s not intentional, but many factors contaminate the water leading to your campground connection. Is the contamination a result of a factory, miles away, inadvertently leaking waste water into a source which flows downstream and pollutes your water source? Maybe a dairy farm, unknowingly is contributing to E.Coli. In this day and age, exercise caution. Some deranged individual, in Florida, a couple of years ago tried to poison a small city water source. Unbelievable, but true. That’s why you need the best RV water filtration system on the market.

Ok, so you’re on board and realize you definitely should have an RV water filter system. This spurs some questions. How long will it last? Exactly what will it do? How is it made and where? Do I need to hire a plumber to install it? All good questions. We’ve got the answers.

Selecting a Powerful RV Water Filter

Do I Need a Plumber to Install the RV Water Filter Kit?

Nope. No plumber needed to install this filter. The kit installation is easy. The housing is polycarbonate, tuff and sturdy. The kit includes everything you need to install.

When Do I Replace My RV Water Filter?

When the flow is not sufficient for your needs, it’s time to replace the filter. While the flow will slow down considerably, the water is every bit as safe to drink as with a brand new filter. You can plan, with average contamination, to purify approximately 2,000 gallons of water per filter; however, if you’re in an area with extreme contamination, the filter will receive more ‘gunk’ and of course, need to be replaced sooner. On the other hand, if you’re hooked up to a city water source, it should be fairly clean water. But, again, don’t take anything for granted… Think Flint, Michigan. The filter will respond to the contamination it receives. Make sense?

What Makes Sagan Life® Water Filters Different?

We’d like to give you a complete and detailed description of how our patented filters are made. Be assured that our filters have been tested and certified using the “End of Life” method. This means our products are tested by an independent source until they cease to work. So we can tell you exactly what the filter removes and for how many gallons. Pretty sure Sagan Life® is the only company using the “End of Life” method. Other water filter manufacturers claiming to purify 10,000+ gallons would have had to test and record results for that many gallons. I haven’t seen that kind of data anywhere. If you have, please leave it in the comments below. We’d love to be proven wrong.

The patented filtration media technology used in all Sagan Life® water purification products is based on electro adsorption of contaminants, not mechanical filtration. The electron-positively charged media acts like a magnet attracting and retaining contaminants, as small as viruses, out of the water as they come in contact with the media.

The media itself is made of layers of non-woven, nano-alumina coated glass fibers containing powdered activated carbon (PAC) and antimicrobial protection (silver). The positively charged media field is sandwiched between layers of Spunbond polyester, which provides strength to the pleated media.

The proprietary filter media offers exceptionally high flow rates and efficiency in removing contaminants. The media has been shown to remove viruses, bacteria, cysts, volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), disinfection by-products, endotoxin, natural organic matter, and other sub-micron particles and therefore making it impossible for dangerous organisms to pass through.

Clean Drinking Water is Your Most Important Commodity – Be Certain About What You Buy

There is nothing more important than the safety of you and the ones you love. Whether you’re in the middle of the desert or the top of Pikes Peak, water is your most important commodity. Doesn’t it stand to reason that you install the best RV water filter kit to protect your family? Get Sagan Life®. You can spend more, but you can’t buy better RV water filter equipment.
