When we get nitwits plaguing us with concentrations of contaminants with a PPB (parts per billion) label we know we have a scam going on. Too many have no idea how much of the stuff carrying the PPB warning one has to ingest to get a lethal dose. I read a report of a transport being stopped at the border because some envirofreakkie group was nattering about the 1.5 PPB of malachite green found to be contained in the farmed salmon aboard. After much media frenzie it was succinctly pointed out to the scare mongers that a person would have to sit down and consume the entire truckload of fish at one sitting to even come close to having a lethal dose of the supposed deadly chemical.

Always look for the basics in any news story; why, how, who is behind the story and the why now behind the story. Too easy to fool some people with imaginary problems.

I feel like a wild turkey during hunting season here wrong forum to ask if anyone has concerns with water quality.
I need a do over for my OP. Lets pretend the following is my first post.

I love my home RO system and would like to have RO in my RV.
Anybody got one? Anyone?

In case no one will answer you... yes I have seen folks who RV who have RO systems. They do make them for RV's . They also make them with a "boondocking" option in which the "waste" water that is the byproduct of the RO operation is recycled somehow. I don't know since I am not into the RO systems. I do not feel we need that level of filtration as our water does tend to come from approved sources... I'm just a tad leery of the "standards" but do not take on deliberately risky water. Given the places we have refilled our tanks with, It's just an added layer of protection. We could be 6 states away with a tank full of bad water before anyone was ever notified it was bad and we would never know it.

Bad drinking water leads to rapidly filling black tanks...

We had an RO system in our stick and bricks. Hated it.

Please elaborate. I'm sure our members would like to know why you hated it.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

To me the water tasted acidic and bland. Does that make any sense?
