    Has anybody got any views on the nature-pure water filter,
    was thinking of getting one. i had a look at the price with tap, hoses and filter £162-50.

    Had one for three years, highly recommend it, never buy bottled water again, filters are expensive but using it full time ours lasts about a year.. if we drank bottled water it would cost a lot more than that and it's eco friendly which bottled water isn't.

    Peace of mind, you can drink water from ANY source safely.

    have to agree with Jim on this,

    bought one at stratford last year and never looked back. £145

    as you're putting, basicly, clean water through it the filter does last a long time.
    it is a much slower flow than the regular tap

    the trader was demonstrating with a blue dye in the water and it came out the tap crystal clear.
    he said if he has access to dirty water (ditch, canal) he uses that as its a better demo.

    the water is so clean its almost sterile.

    We agree with all above, Sandra won;t drink and water with off tastes and the water filter does what it claims, plus the convenience of not having to carry water is worth the cost.

    Next to the S.O.G that we fitted to the toilet its the best thing we did.

    Would highly recommend getting one, I drink lots of water and it has made a big difference to the taste, The dog like his water out of the filter also

    We fitted a water filter brilliant wouldn't be without it but we didn't buy the tap we run it through our cold tap in the kitchen so everything through that tap is filtered.

    All positive, but......

    I'm sure I've seen a post from Ray, Desert Detours, having a bit of a laugh at someone who said "don't need anything other than this filter" - they weren't half poorly.

    i was tampted to do that Ror,

    we have a glass sink cover and the tap would have missed the sink :Doh:so fitted it in the bathroom:thumb:
    bit inconvenient for the kettle but what the hell, at least it doesnt run all over the worktop :RollEyes:

    Sorry to go slightly off topic, but does anyone know a supplier of filters apart from the on line shop ?

    Last year someone, (can't recall who it was) just back from the States was selling them about half price.. wish I had bought two now.. :Doh:

    TIA

    Hi

    I like the idea, however I have been over 10year using the water from the tanks. I sterilise the FW tank regualrly. and have had no problems. (mind I dont drink much of it except in tea coffee) prefering beer instead!!!. Just did a few sums, and seeing as we are currently using about 15 litre a week for drinking in Spain and as we are ONLY over here for about 12 weeks then it would take about 5 years to pay for its self?

    So unless you are fulltiming on dodgy supplies It could be expensive.

    Pete

    Hi Pete

    I agree .. ALL European water is by law fit to drink and believe it or not the testing standards are actually higher for tap water than bottled water .. but the risk isn't from the water itself but from the site taps where I've seen people washing out porta poti tanks, shampooing dogs etc ... makes my blood boil when I see it :Angry: but irrespective of the nasties, the filter also makes the water taste so much better.. but as you say, it could be a long pay back for the holiday user.

    I agree with all the previous, had one fitted in 2 previous vans over 15 year period hasn't changed design in all that time., Would suggest you DO fit faucet as it lengths the time the filter needs to be changed ie ours is changed every 12 months used for drinking and kettle filling only. Have also used it when at home when our supply changes colour in the Summer months.

    Regards.

    Well better put that on my 'must have' list then :Smile: I think that far too many dog owners completely forget (or never even knew) that good clean drinking water is far more important to a dog (health wise) than food.
