Drinking water storage in caravans


#21

Most filters are good at removing heavy metals and things like chlorine so the water may taste a lot better. They are not so good at removing other metals such as zinc, bacteria, viruses, fungus, mould, as these are elements that are not easily trapped by what in most is either activated carbon or small passages through a porous medium eg unglazed porcelain.

Reverse Osmosis (RO) or distillation are the cleanest outcomes but both require reasonably large amounts of energy to achieve results and RO also requires larger amounts of water (about 2 times more) than is saved/produced for consumption eg if you want 1 litre you need about 3 litres of uncleansed water.

I did. Filtered before it goes into the tanks and filtered before we drink it by our under sink filter.

Hi @Iris,

You can use Camec’s water tank. These are made up of plastic. Also I would suggest the use of product “Tank Clean” if you are going to drink from it.
