Water Filter for JayFlight 26BH

Any recommendations for a JayFlight 26BH? I have seen many different ones people use at campgrounds but don't know which is best and which is overkill.

Is the purpose of a water filter for making the water drinkable? Keeping the pipes clean? Or both?

Thanks!

I just use a disposable filter on water hose to trailer and yes its helps make some water drinkable and keeps sediment out of lines and hot water heater.

I was thinking more along the lines of one of these:

That looks like one a friend of mine uses and works great, the ones I use just dont cost as much but they both will do the job.

I had a smaller Camco filter on mine a while back and it was just such a pain. So far in my area I have had good water and cant tell any difference. I have a filter screen on my inlet and that seems to catch anything. I dont feel like I am going to cause any problems with my plumbing system.

The big reason for the filter is the kids. When they brush their teeth at night the take a drink of water from the tap (like at home). This past trip they both complained about the water taste. Hence the start of this thread.

Here is what we use.

Our water is mainly used for cooking and washing, but we drink it occasionally too. Thus filter has worked great for us.

I am not sure the cheap filters are going to change the taste that much. I would think you would have to go up to the high dollar osmosis or whatever filters.

One suggestion is to take some bottled water for straight drinking.

Also - have you sanitized your system? Next time you camp try the water right out of the hose bib and see if it might be your pipes....

We use one of the cylinder filters that replaces a short section of removable tubing under a counter. It is primarily there to filter incoming city water, so that our dish washing, showers, and sink water is clean. It gets changed once a year. For drinking and cooking, we never trust the city water - we bring a few jugs of our home filtered well water along for that.
