Water Filter?

I was reading an article about dumping and saw this picture. What caught my attention was the water hose in the background. I recognize the long blue cylinder as a water filter. What is the blue jug looking thing that is sitting on the ground next to it?

Skinny one is a water filter, the other one looks like a water softener.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

I too suspect that's some kind of water softener!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

It's a blue pedestal with a white doohickey on top and the hose runs into a connector on one side and out another connector on the other side. I was guessing a water pump but that didn't make a lot of sense.

I think they have a double filter system, small blue one the feeds a larger one, the blue unit holds the household size filter upright.

As others have said, that is a water softener.

If it is a water softener. It is a tiny one, I am guessing secondary filter.

Here's a photo of a water softener next to a couple of typical water filters. Notice the small size. There are may RV water softeners of various sizes which makes me believe that is, indeed, a water softener.

RichR gets the prize

It is a Camco Universal Fit Water Filter Stand. If you search for water filter stand on Amazon, it is the first one that comes up. Very handy to keep the standard cartridge filter housing from falling over.

Yep, I agree now that I see the stand. I stand (sit, actually) corrected.

Yeah, the blue thing is just a stand. What it is holding up could be either another filter stage or a small water softener. Anything that is cartridge shaped.

Water filter. The blue device is a holder for a filter stand https://www.campingworld.com/water-f...d-2-87721.html

the white top thing on it is a water filter
https://www.campingworld.com/flowmat...ter-52614.html
This is the same filter you can buy at Lowes and such places.

We use the same thing plus another double filter, so we have a triple filter system. Plus we have a water softener
