Camco water filter reduces poor water source problems

If you’re planning to visit the southwestern deserts this winter you know how bad and full of grit the water can be. So even if you have a water filter under your sink for your drinking water, it would also help to have a filter to pre-filter the water coming into your rig before it gets into and clogs the rest of the system.

This is where the Camco water filter can be a useful addition to your system.


  • Inline Design and Higher Flow Rate – Water filter stays aligned with water hose during use and has a wide body for higher capacity and flow rate.
  • One Filter Per Camping Season – Can last an entire camping season and has Granular Activated Carbon to provide safe drinking water from any potable water source. Made in the USA and is CSA certified.
  • Built-In Filter Removes Bacteria, Carbon and More – Reduces chlorine, odor, contaminants, sediment, and particulates for better taste and healthier drinking water. 20-micron sediment filter greatly reduces bad taste, odors, chlorine and sediment in drinking water, perfect for use at campsites.
  • Extra Filtration with the Use of GAC and KDF Technology – Uses a KDF Fluid Treatment for filtration. Kinetic Degradation Fluxion (KDF) is a high-purity copper-zinc formulation that uses a basic chemical process known as redox (oxidation/reduction) to remove chemicals that give unpleasant odors or tastes to water such as hydrogen sulfide and chlorine. KDF also prevents the growth of fungus, bacteria, and mold when the filter is not in use.
  • Comes with Flexible Hose Protector – Flexible Hose Protector by Camco eliminates water hose crimping and straining. Allows water hose to bend at sharp angles and prevents straining your water hose.
  • Multiple Uses – Can be attached to any standard gardening or water hose to provide healthier drinking water and cleaner water overall. Great for RVs, boats, campers, pets, gardening, washing cars and much more.

The Camco filter serves as a great pre-filter. Our whole-house filter takes care of the next level and our drinking water filter in the fridge is the final level of filtration.
The problem with using a fine filter as your only filter, or as a pre-filter is that the filter can become easily clogged reducing water flow considerably and requiring frequent replacement of expensive filters.

Try the Green Clear2O CRV2001 RV filter.
1 vs 100 micron, no contest for the removal of odor and being able to drink the water.

Unfortunately Camco inline filters very little and does not remove odor from our water. Clear2O recently launched a new inline filter with 1 micron solid carbon block reducing contaminants. The water taste great, it has eliminated the water odor when showering and I highly recommend it this product. The product is lime green and it easy to spout. Available on Amazon and Clear2o website.

Our experience with southwest water (like in Quartzsite) is that it is LOADED with calcium and gums up all sorts of things, like the screens on your faucets, small holes on some of the toilets installed in RV’s, and just your water system in general. Boondockers cannot use reverse osmosis, or even water softeners, and this filter shown here is almost useless. There just isn’t much you, as a boondocking RV’er, can do about southwest water. IMHO . . .

The Camco water filter only filters out particularly larger than 20 microns, that is fairly large particles. Considering most filters start at 10 microns. I don’t waste my money on these, basically that’s going to filter out the grains of sand but dirt can still go thru.
