Hey all! So we made a quick video on how awesome our outside filtration system is working! We have been using it 6 months now and this was the first time a filter got leaky…and the first time we checked the filters to see how dirty they were! We intended just to fix a leaky filter but when we opened it up and saw the filter we decided to change it (since it was first in line and the dirtiest!). The leak was fixed once we tightened it…typical maintenance! But holy cow we were so happy that we decided to buy and use these filters for our journey! We have been from Washington to Arizona with these filters and used them on rv parks, campgrounds, city inlets, and rest area hookups and water quality is different everywhere! We even found tiny rocks in it that really could have damaged our water lines on chitty bang! Here is the video and some shenanigans:)
While traveling, finding water has become second nature to us. If you stay off the beaten path and hit up BLM land, rest areas, truck stops, state campgrounds…sometimes there is no water to fill up your tanks or it is non-potable water that is available. Water filtration, I belive, is a definite must if you do not know for sure where the water you will drink is coming from. We have filled up with non-potable water, but just used it to wash hands and take showers. We usually carry a few jugs of distilled water ($.88 at walmart) for drinking while we are traveling just so we don’t blow through our reserves.
Here is a video on the inside of #ChittyBang and how we clean our drinking water via reverse osmosis and Uv light. Another video coming soon on how we clean and soften the water first entering the system, which was added a few months after we started our journey. Links to products coming!
