Benefits of AquaSafe

The AquaSafe RV Filter is engineered from the ground up to fulfill the needs of the RV and boating community. It is a no compromise, purpose built, RV water filter. The AquaSafe RV Filter is especially effective at improving the taste and quality of drinking water at RV parks by filtering chlorine, heavy metals, and hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg odor).

The big considerations for water filtration when you’re a part time RVer are affordability, effectiveness, and filter reusability as it’s unlikely that you’ll get maximum use out of a filter during a two week vacation – and certainly won’t on a weekend trip.

Reusability is an important consideration as most water filters are designed to be used continuously. If they’re left in stagnant non-moving water, or if they’re removed and stored wet, they’ll grow bacteria, algae, and other toxins.

That’s why (assuming you plan to reuse your filter) it’s very important that the filter you use is bacteriostatic – which means that it prevents bacteria from reproducing. This is different than anti-bacterial substances which are designed to kill bacteria. Your body requires bacteria to function properly, so you don’t want to consume anti-bacterial substances.

The AquaSafe inline RV water filter meets the desired criteria and is one of the most common water filters you see in RV parks. It’s an excellent option for both part time and full time RVers.

The benefits of the AquaSafe RV filter are that it’s easy to install, it’s inexpensive, and most importantly the AquaSafe RV filters are bacteriostatic so they won’t grow bacteria and can be reused for numerous RV trips.

AquaSafe accomplishes this by using the highest quality coconut shell granular activated carbon (GAC) in combination with KDF. Taken from Wikipedia: “KDF is known to kill algae and fungi, control bacteria growth, remove chlorine, pesticides, organic matter, rust, unpleasant taste and odor, hydrogen sulfide, iron, lead, nickel, chromium, cadmium, calcium, aluminum, mercury, arsenic, and other organic compounds . . . KDF is optimized when used in conjunction with another filter media, especially any form of activated carbon.”

By combining KDF with activated carbon, AquaSafe inline RV water filters not only have a longer life than traditional carbon filters, but the carbon media also becomes more effective due to the reduction in chlorine build up.
