    Best water filter systems

    Hi- We'll be heading out in our new 303 rls in a month (part timers) or so and wanted to add a water filter that filters well obviously as well as providing good tasting water. Hopefully for $200.00 or less. We've seen them for all kinds of prices. Previously we've brought water from our home RO system or filled jugs from stores which is a pain. Any thoughts on best way to go? I've seen a Clear Source two filter and single USA filters.
    Is going with a single filter at source and an under sink filter for drinking water a good option?
    Thanks!

    I've used this company for years for home water filter needs - excellent mom & pop shop out of Georgia. Very knowledgeable staff that is happy to help. You can install several of these in-line, if you're handy.

    If all you want is drinking water, consider a Big Berkey. Expensive but hands-down the best filter I've ever owned, to include fluoride removal (that is very difficult to find outside of a reverse osmosis system).

    I went with a 2 stage Beech Lane - look at Clear Choice then the Beech Lane. I put it in the basement so its not exposed.

    Well, I built my own. It's a two stage with a sediment filter for stage one and a carbon filter for stage two. It will filter down to .5 microns, so pretty much all the nasty stuff, except heavy metals. I just bought two filter canisters, and the filters I wanted. Then the GH elbows and short 1'-2' hoses I already had the brass adjustable water pressure thing so I didn't need a new one of those. This system is flexible and I can add a heavy metal filter if needed without a big hassle. This is all mounted in the basement, with a bucket underneath it all when I need to change the filters. I'll be going out to the RV storage place sometime this week and, if I remember, I'll get pictures. I'll post them on the thread I have. Just search for threads started by me.

    We are also looking. Comparing a clear2o product to some of the others, I like the charcoal block idea.
    We might try to get the kitchen sink model for drinking water and just use regular filter for hose since we do a good job keeping tanks sanitized.

    Here is the carbon filter I used... I don't know what the flow rate will be as I haven't used it yet.

    Here use the first stage filter canister I used: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B007VZ2O...ing=UTF8&psc=1

    The regulator: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0855VTL...ing=UTF8&psc=1

    The connectors for the hoses, I think they fit the first filter I linked (I had a heck of a time adapting everything to GH connectors): https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B087B47S...ing=UTF8&psc=1 and https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B087B2DZ...ESEBAFMS?psc=1

    This is what I have been using, designed for water hose connections. You can either go with single or double. I have been using a double with a sediment filter first and a CTO filter (clorine, taste and odor) on the second. If I were doing it over again I would just use a single since the CTO filters also filter for sediment. The Matrikx filters are good, either the the Matrikx CTO Plus or CTO/2.

    Regarding the Beechline and Clearsource, wow, big price difference between these two: $350 vs. under a $100. I can see why you went with the Beechline. Thanks
