Water filter

Does anyone know of a water filter that will remove calcium?
Thanks JMAT

Yes, I believe the Hydro Life water filter model HL-200 sold at campworld does. I have this one and it does a great job.

Just went outside and mounted it for you to see. I winterized last week while on the road back to Bellingham.
I mounted the bracket( and they give you 2 just in case you want to use it at home when your not on the road) on the water heater door. The flat bracket stays on the door but the bracket that holds the filter just slips off when your on the road. The only thing extra I had to buy was the 4' hose from the filter to the trailer. Campworld sells the 4' hose and it's just the right length. Now it can be mounted on the bumper and I have seen it done that way but this way works for me.

I haven't purchased anything from this site, so don't have a recommendation. ... just passing it along.

You need a water softener to remove calcium.

The Hydro Life filter cartridge #2063 says, "Contaminants addressed include bacteria, heavy metals, hydrogen sulfide, lime/scale, chlorine, VOC's, taste, and odor". I note it says "Contaminants addressed" so I'm not sure they are saying it effectively removes CaCO3 or just gives it the Ole College Try. I'm with Grumpy, I think a water softener is needed.

Thanks, I think your right, that is what my research has found.

Reverse Osmosis may get rid of calcium. The down side is that it is slow and you have to run off your pump and water tank.

x2 Also don't fall for those magnets you put on the hose. Only makes your wallet lighter.

Boy, glad he didn't listen to me on that one. I thought for sure calcium was on that list. Lesson learned for me today, won't make that mistake again.
Thanks Grumpy, I almost bought that filter for JMAT!
