The filter system I posted a link to above claims to be a sediment, carbon and bacteria combo. The Campground I'm currently at is on well water. I doubt there's much treatment on it from them. I don't mind having to sanitize the system. If the filters I linked to or something similar will keep it from coming back I'd like to know. Do t really want to sanitize my system every 2-3 months.

That Clearsource fllter sounds impressive, but I have no idea what quality of filter is needed to remove that particular bacteria. Or how often you would have to replace the filter, since 0.2 microns will surely clog up quickly. Also be aware that any fine mesh filter like that really inhibits the water flow rate - down to 0.5 gpm in this case. Most people prefer 3 gpm for a decent shower and 2 gpm for sink faucets.

I'd be inclined to sanitize and see if the odor comes back and how quickly. Then decide about the value of a high grade filter system.
