Clear2O CRV2006 RV and Marine Inline Water Filter. Looking for pros/cons on this incoming water filter. It is a 1um carbon block filter rather than the typical granulated carbon filter. Main complaint I have seen is about water pressure drop through the filter.
Any inline filter will decrease the flow rate of water and as such it lowers pressure pressure for that reason. It does not change the static pressure at all. The issue is flow rate and while a carbon block has more affect than granular, both do so as they collect sediment from the water. From experience I have learned that a far better solution is to go with a whole house designed filter because they have far higher flow capability than does any inline filter. The design or each makes the reason quite evident.
With the whole house type of water filter you have a very wide range of filter cartridges available for different filtering abilities and much better flow rates.
I used to use the blue Camco filter. I use the water from my tank for drinking, cooking etc. I purchase filtered water from machines to use to make coffee. About 18 months ago I decided to try the Clear20 filter. It filters much smaller particles than the Camco. The improvement in the taste of the water was quite noticeable. I continued using the Clear20 and no longer buy filtered water to make coffee. It is definitely worth the extra cost to me.
