Clarence Water Filters stocks a wide range of caravan water filters and RV water filters.
Based in Sunny Yamba, NSW, we offer both residential and commercial water filtration solutions.
- Under sink water filter systems for Caravans and RVs
- Point of entry water filter systems for Caravans and RVs
- Point of use water filter systems for Caravans and RVs
- Inline water filters for Caravans and RVs
- Water filter systems with push on hose fittings
Our filter systems are designed to deliver safe and healthy water for drinking and showering water while you are travelling around Australia.
We have options available for treating all types of water including town, tank, bore, tank, river, and dam water.
Ceramic filters and UV light systems also available for protection from bacteria, viruses, and protozoa when using untreated tank, bore, river, and creek water.
Why Filter Your Water When Travelling?
Although Australian drinking water is good by international standards, it can still contain a variety of contaminants including chlorine, chloramines, sediment, disinfection by-products, heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, and dissolved minerals.
If you are obtaining water from a natural or untreated water source, you could be also be exposed to bacteria, cyst parasites (cryptosporidium, giardia, cyclospora), algal spores, and viruses.
Caravan water filters can remove all of these contaminants, making your water safe to consume.
Filtering your water will also dramatically improve its taste, odour, and appearance — making your trip around Australia much more enjoyable!
Point of Use (POU) Vs Point Of Entry (POE) Caravan Water Filters
Caravan water filters are typically placed into two categories: Point of Entry (outside the caravan) and Point of Use (inside the caravan).
A Point Of Entry (POE) Caravan water filter system is installed between the source of your incoming water and the caravan.
It will filter 100% of your incoming water supply before it reaches your caravan’s water tank or taps.
Our most popular POE system is the Hi Flow Twin Caravan & RV Water Filter System with Sediment & Carbon Filters.
It can handle high flow rates (up to 10 LPM) , making it ideal for caravans which contain showers.
This unit features brass click on hose fittings so you can quickly detach and attach the system using standard drinking water hose and standard garden hose fittings.
The High Flow POE system listed above is designed to handle high flow rates so is less fine than other filtration options.
However, there are also some ultra-fine ceramic POE filter systems which are designed to filter out bacterial contaminants at slow rates — great for when you are free camping and forced to use untreated water.
However, it’s important note these ultra-fine ceramic filters cannot handle the flow rates needed for onboard showers. They are best operated at flow rates lower than 4 litres per minute.
A Point Of Use (POU) Caravan water filter system is located where you use your water, typically somewhere inside the caravan, after the water tanks.
Most POU systems are installed under the kitchen sink and attached to a dedicated drinking water tap.
They are typically finer filters which are designed to filter water at a slower flow rate. The additional fineness makes them better at reducing extremely small sediment particles, complex chemicals like chloramines, and heavy metals.
If the carbon filter is a carbon block rated at 1 micron or lower, it will also be able to reduce CYST parasites including Cryptosporidium, Giardia, and Cyclospora. Useful when travelling and forced to use water that is untreated or improperly treated.
An example of a popular Point Of Use Water Filter System is the Genuine 3M™ Under Sink Caravan and RV Water Filter System.
Types Of Caravan and RV Water Filter Systems
There are several different styles of water filter systems available including:
Inline Caravan Water Filters and Inline RV Water Filters
Under sink Caravan and RV Water Filters
High Flow Caravan and RV Water Filters
Benchtop Caravan and RV Filters
Permanently Installed Caravan Filters vs Portable Caravan Filters
Permanently installed units are designed to remain in one position once installed. Most under sink units will be permanently installed as they are plumbed into your mixer tap or a dedicated drinking water tap.
Portable systems can be plugged into an incoming water supply, then taken off and stored in a safe location. Our twin high flow system is an example of a portable unit. It features click on hose fittings, allowing it to be quickly connected to a standard tap outlet and your caravan or RV water inlet.
Water Softening and Scale Reduction For Caravans
Many parts of Australia has water with a high concentration of dissolved minerals and salts. This type of water is commonly called ‘hard water’. Many parts of WA, QLD, and SA have hard water.
The minerals in hard water can precipitate from the water, forming a hard-to-remove limescale crust. This can ruin the appearance of your caravan’s taps, sinks, and shower cubicle. Eventually severe scale build-up can cause damage to plumbing fixtures, metals pipes and glass surfaces.
To reduce scale build-up using filters, you can:
- Soften the water
Ion Exchange Resin can be used to swap out dissolved minerals for harmless molecules. The only downside of these types of systems as they can only support a slow flow rate. Water softeners physically remove dissolved minerals. Example: Portable Triple Stage Water Softener & Purifier Water Filter System
- Condition the water
Water conditioners will change the form of the dissolved minerals in the water, so they are less likely to form scale. Example: Scale Reduction Portable Triple Stage Water Filter System
There are also inline water conditioners for caravans, which use a special alloy to reduce scale build-up. The advantage of this type of unit is that it can be plumbed into your water line or attached to a point of entry filter system. They have no moving parts, no replenishable components, and a very long lifespan. One example is the popular SofterWater™ Inline Caravan Hard Water Softener.
Benefits of Using An Inline Caravan Water Filter
The main advantages of using a caravan inline water filter include:
Water That Smells and Tastes Great
Removal Of Potentially Dangerous Chemicals
Protects Your Appliances
Dealing With Hard Water
If you are a keen traveller and explore many parts of Australia, you have probably encountered hard water. Hard water is water that contains a high level of dissolved minerals and salts. Western Australia, South Australia, Northern Territory, and Queensland have particularly hard water
Some of the minerals within hard water can precipitate from the water and form a hard limescale crust on hard surfaces. This problem becomes worse when the water is heated.
Limescale build-up from hard water can be very detrimental to a caravan, motor home, or RV. In severe cases, it can cause plumbing blockages, damage taps, coat heating elements, and impair solenoids. This can eventually damage or destroy appliances like coffee machines and dish washers.
There are several options for dealing with hard water including:
- SofterWater™ Inline Caravan Hard Water Softener
- Portable Triple Stage Water Softener & Purifier Water Filter System
- Scale Reduction Portable Triple Stage Water Filter System
