RV FLOW RATES: HOW TO SPOT THE PROBLEM

A question that we often get not only about our RV water filters but RV’s in general is, “Why isn’t the water flow rate faster?” It’s truly a million-dollar question, and one which has multiple answers. The fact is, flow rate is affected by so many factors, it can sometimes require the sleuthing skills of a seasoned detective to get to the root cause.

BY ANY MEASURE, TOTAL DISSOLVED SOLIDS (TDS) IS A POOR INDICATOR OF WATER QUALITY
