    We were reading about the portable Nature pure system after reading about the competition to win one, even though expensive at £132 and £38 for the filter, just like a normal britta filter jug I suppose only better?
    Anyone had experience of these?
    We wouldnt need it inline for showering and washing of dishes etc only drinking!:thumb:

    Brita has an activated carbon filter and only removes odours, not bacteria, it doesn't make foul water potable.

    The Nature pure removes bacteria, cysts, etc... you can drink canal water after it's been through a Nature pure... try that with a Brita .. but read the full details on the Nature pure site... you get what you pay for and although the NP filters are expensive they will last well over a year .. IIRC correctly it will filter 9,000 litres , works out at about 4p per litre.. a lot cheaper than bottled..

    I fitted our Nature Pure Filter a year or two ago. We wouldn't be without it now. We are still on the original filter, we carry a spare one for when this one needs to be replaced. Ours has it's own tap and is tee'd off of the cold water supply to the kitchen tap.

    This one we are looking at on the nature pure website filters 475 litres at £38.
    We have looked at the option of fitting one in the van but to get to the water under the sink the fridge needs to be removed, needless to say we don't want to do that.

    I know the britta is useless at filtering bad stuff and wondered if any of you had the portable unit which look a bit like a water jug.

    We had some pretty horrible tasting " potable" water in France and wanted something to make it safe as well as good tasting as I drink a lot of water.

    Brita filters are really for taste, they do filter a few metals but thats about it. harmfaul bacteria will pass through it, and if you do not change it enough they will multiply in it:Eeek:

    We have a portable filter (.4 micron) we use when walking, we can fill up at any stream and not bother that a dead sheep might be upstream. This is me filling a bladder last year from a mucky old stream in Brecon

    Thanks for that didnt know you could buy bladders...for walking and hiking.

    Works the same wayI suppose:RollEyes:

    As to Jims suggestion, fitting one in the bathroom would be viable, thanks for that:thumb:
