Like all filters, Caravan Drinking Water Filter life is dependent on water quality (& quantity), used. It is a good idea to remove cartridges and store them in the fridge between road trips.
Because of variable water quality encountered by road travellers, a sediment/carbon pre filter is always recommended to maximise UF cartridge life.

Caravan Drinking Water Filter Installation
- Check you have standard 12mm water tubing with 1/2″ connectors supplying your caravan tap,( or request we supply alternate fittings to suit).
- Turn off water supply, run thread tape to all fittings ( 3-4 rounds)
- Disconnect existing 12mm water tubing at cold water entry point under sink
- Screw Water Stop Valve to exposed 1/2″ male fitting at entry point
- Connect one end of supplied 500mm tubing to 1/2″ male fitting of Water Stop Valve, and other end to 1/2″x 1/4″ fitting on IN port of Carbon cartridge
- Connect 1/2″ x 1/4″ joiner on OUT port of UF cartridge to existing 12mm tubing running to tap
- Select best mounting point for twin inline cartridges, & screw in 2 mount brackets to suit UF cartridge. (Adjust cartridge orientation as necessary)
- Now disconnect the short water line from the quick connect fitting at the IN port of the UF filter. Place the open end into a bucket to permit seperate flushing of the new Carbon Inline filter. ( Carbon filters tend to shed some carbon fines on start up, & it is recommended to discharge this to a waste bucket, rather than load up the 0.1 micron UF filter).
- Turn on the water & stop valve to flush the Carbon cartridge with about 10 litres of water or until clear.
- Reconnect the short water line to the UF cartridge, and then flush both cartridges, checking for any water leaks
- Enjoy Sweet Tasting, Bacteria Free Water!
