Keystone Automotive Operations Inc., parent of NTP-STAG, is adding Clearsource to its water filtration category.

According to a press release, Clearsource manufactures premium water filtration systems, specifically engineered for RVs. Constructed of high-quality components, including heavy-duty filter housings with leak-proof buttress-style threading, stainless steel fittings, and a powder-coated metal chassis, Clearsource water filter systems are built to withstand frequent, long-term use.

The system employs a two-step purification process as water first passes through a .5-micron rated filter that removes silt and sediment, and then flows through a .5-micron activated coconut shell carbon filter, which eliminates more obscure contaminants, like chemicals, pesticides, bacteria, giardia cysts, and volatile organic compounds.

Rvers seeking more targeted filtration to address issues such as rust, sulfur, or lead can opt for upgraded filters and/or a three-stage setup from Clearsource, further improving water quality and taste.

Filters cartridges are housed in oversized, heavy-duty canisters that ensure maximum water flow, even under heavy demand. The stainless-steel fittings keep all connections safe and sanitary, while the durable metal housing unit allows the system to be mounted virtually anywhere on the motorhome’s exterior or utility bay.

Clearsource’s water filters are rated to process 2,000 gallons of water, which translates to a replacement schedule of roughly every three months for full-time RVers, twice a year for weekend enthusiasts, and once a year for occasional campers. To extend filter life, the cartridges can be easily removed, dried, and stored when not in use, then rewetted and reinstalled for the next trip.

Customers concerned with theft can lock the external unit in place by running a cable around the chassis’ center post or connecting pipe to an immovable location on the RV.
