We had a nature pure in a previous van but they are expensive.

What do others use, are the free standing Brita jugs any good or do you just sup it straight from the motorhome taps?

I wondered about a filter once, saw the price and decided to stay supping what the tank contained. I don’t drink the water though it’s always either tea or with squash so I don’t know if there’s a “taste” to worry about.

We used to have a Brita Jug in our previous house, but as we have our own water at home now we haven’t bothered with one for years. I thought about getting one for the van, but it is just more ‘stuff’ to find a home for......so I abandoned the idea.

We seldom drink water in the van.....only as tea or coffee. I always fill up a few plastic milk bottles with water from home before we set off on a trip and store them in the garage. That is mainly because we like the taste of our own water if we do decide to have a glass......and also when we had Barney and Betsy they were a bit fussy about drinking anything that tasted different. They would happily drink out of a stream, but hated chlorinated tap water.

When we run out of our own I usually buy some bottled spring water. It doesn’t ‘break the bank’ and tastes better than anything that has been stored in our tank.......or in a tank at an aire etc come to that!

Our last Bessie had a whale filter in it, dunno how they get into the tank though, I tried drinking from the tank and it tasted fine, but we use bottled water for drinks and cooking

We just take our Brita jug from home with us, great for removing the taste of chlorine from the water and helps to reduce the limescale in the kettle. We are in Spain so YMMV in the UK.
