Due to the state of our Country’s aging infrastructure and city water treatment facilities adding unhealthy chemicals, there is a growing concern about our Nation’s drinking water. And, adding in aging campground water systems loaded with contaminants and heavy metals, it’s no wonder the water tastes horrible and leaves spots on anything we wash. So, before hooking up our RV water hose to the campground’s water spigot, we connect it first, to our Clear Source Water Filter System.
Clear Source Dual Water Filter System – Product Review
The Clear Source Dual Water Filter System is an all encompassing water filtration system that provides quality drinking water. This particular system in this review is comprised of two high quality filters, and heavy duty plastic filter housings. It also includes a steel stand to keep the entire system upright and together.
Dual Filter Stages
The first filter stage is a 5 micron 2.5 x 10 inch filter. This stage removes the initial sediments. Following the first filter stage is a 0.5 micron coconut shell carbon block 2.5 x 10 inch filter that completes the second stage. This secondary filter removes chlorine, volatile organic compounds, cysts, giardia, and other contaminants. These two filters working in combination deliver delicious and safe drinking and potable water.
Why Clear Source?
Clear Source primarily focuses on insuring you get safe, clean-tasting water from every water connection for your RV every time. They engineer their RV water filter system to be the best on the market with all premium components and RV-specific features.
Clear Source uses the finest quality filter elements available on the market today. They house the filters in oversize, heavy-duty canisters for outstanding water flow. Clear Source uses all stainless-steel fittings for clean, sanitary connections, and bullet-proof durability.
To house the water filtration system, they’ve developed an industry-leading exclusive, powder-coated metal chassis. This allows you to put your Clear Source Water Filter System on the ground between your RV and the water spigot without worry of corrosion or infiltration of ground contaminants. Because of it’s design, there is no chance of the system tipping over or being knocked down.

Clear Source also stands behind their products with a reputable one-year warranty. They are an industry leader in stellar customer service and product assistance. In fact, their water filter system was featured In 2018 Trailer Life Magazine’s “Essential Equipment For RV Camping” Gear Guide, and extensively reviewed in January, 2019 MotorHome Magazine (“Impressive.” “Makes RV water filtering an art form.”). So, that should tell you promising testimony about Clear Source’s product and reputation.
Water Tank Maintenance
With a Clear Source Water Filter System at the heart of your fresh water system, there are still a few other components necessary in keeping your RV’s complete water system in good working order to ensure healthy drinking water.
Also equally important, always sanitize your RV fresh water holding tanks regularly. We keep a small spray bottle of bleach to sanitize any water supply spigot before hooking up our RV fresh water hose to it. Using all of the tools and routine practices above should provide you and your RV with safe drinking water for you and your family.
Other Necessary Supplies You May Need
You’ll need to make sure you have a clean high-quality potable water only hose from the water source to the Clear Source Water Filter System and another from the filters to your water-fill port in the RV. Again, these white or blue RV/Marine water hoses should be used for drinking water only!
You need to also be aware of the water pressure delivery into your water system. To monitor the water pressure, we recommend using an adjustable water pressure regulator with gauge. This will allow you to adjust the water pressure up or down to maintain the water rate of flow you like best.
Additionally, we are huge fans of quick-disconnect water hose fittings. We use them throughout our fresh water system to aid in easy connecting and disconnecting all of our hoses, filters and fittings.
Lastly, don’t forget to replace your Clear Source Filter Cartridges regularly. This system’s filter cartridges are rated to process 2000 gallons of water. For the occasional camper, annual replacement is fine. Frequent weekend RVers should replace the cartridges twice each year. And, for the RV full-timer, Clear Source recommends replacing filter cartridges every two to three months.
Clear Source Water Filter Systems have quickly become the filter system of choice for RVers. Also see the new triple-stage filtering Clear Source Ultra System.
So, this is one of those RV essentials that should be of utmost importance to your family’s health. It would also make a great gift for the new RV!
