Water filtration

What do others use to help assure the water they use, either from the onboard tank or direct, both from the faucet at an RV park, is potable?  In addition to the inline filter, we are considering a Britta counter pitcher, or something similar.   Just don’t want to use a bunch of disposable bottles.

Outside we use a 3 stage outboard filter from Clear Source which includes:

Stage 1 Sediment, Stage 2 Block Carbon and Stage 3 a 2 u finisher.

Inside we're using a Burkee Travel size.

Three camping seasons now with the Pur, and it continues to impress me. It is an inexpensive solution. Try it for a while, and if you feel the need for a more intensive setup for the trailer, use the pitcher at home or gift it to a relative.

Clean water is one of my OCD issues with camping.  🙂  Hard to believe that as kids, when out playing basketball or baseball we just drank from whatever neighborhood garden hose was available. 🙂   I put together a 3 stage system similar to the ClearSource unit, but for about half the cost.  The first stage is the usual Camco bullet style filter that you see everyone using hanging on the campsite faucet.  That filter is a 20 micron size filter rating, and pretty decent chemical removal.  After that I use a 5 micron cartridge filter and then a 0.5 micron carbon block cartridge filter, both in Camco filter housings and mounted into a milk crate, to do additional filtering/finishing.  The milk crate also is used to store all the hoses, fittings and pressure regulator when traveling.  Quick connect fittings on everything to make setup and tear down very fast.  The system does create a bit of a pressure drop/flow restriction, but the flow at the faucets is still good.  And with the filter ratings of the 3 sequential filtration stages it pretty much removes everything as far as sediment and common chemicals.
