I need to replace my everpure filter. this is the standard filter that came with my Journey.
It still has good flow, but its been a year now.
Do you go with those smaller two pack replacements or just go for the single larger replacement.
Where is the best price?

I have been pondering the same question for next season. We have been using the larger filter but I suspect it is far from 'spent' when we discard it at the end of the season. If I remember correctly, pricing of the two smaller filters did not encouraged me to go that route.

I am a fulltimer. I replace the Everpure filter once a year. I have paid anywhere from $39.95 at Camping World to #$34.95 (including shipping) from www.RVWaterFilterStore.com.

Before fulltiming, I would remove the filter during longer storage periods, seal it in a ziplock bag, and keep it in the refrigerator at home ...and replaced it once a year. I haven't priced the half-sized filters, but if I was still part-timing I might be tempted to use them depending on price.

We use the smaller sizes ...

The co-pilot decides when it is that we should change the filters ... I can't give you clue about her algorithm ... but I have been married for 50 years ... I intend to make it to 51 so I change whenever ...

While at a RV rally I asked the Everpure tech what the difference was, he said the large one filters out more bad stuff the little one doesn't. I don't remember what is was exactly but it was something like mercury or something like that. Maybe the Everpure site has that info.

I thought it had to be replaced only when the water flow slowed down

Hi Ron,

If it will fit, you could try these:

Everpure OW4 Cartridge Unit Price $76.97 as of 8-29-05
From Superior Water Systems Co Inc.
superwater.com everpurefilters4less.com PO Box 81-1837 Boca Raton, FL 33481
1-866-WATER2U DIRECT LINE: 561-241-0260 CELL: 561-703-4544

Search for EV9635-01 current price $79.95

Much larger but also much better and last longer. Iíve been using them since 2005 and change the filter about every 2 years. They fit the same adapter as the short RV filters. Check the specs. on what they filter out as compared to the RV filters.

Hey Guys,

Haven't had much of chance to hang out on the site lately, but saw this discussion on water filters and had recently asked this question to a few of the filter manufacturers.

The difficulty with answering the question is the fact that RV's can move to different water sources. So if you stayed in one location and had a supply of city water which was chlorinated than you probably could run the filter until the flow decreased. Or if you super chlorinated your own water by running water into your RV's fresh tank and adding chlorine and using that exclusively.

The great thing about a activated carbon filter is that they are relatively inexpensive and are good at removing the bad taste, oder and some contaminates from the water. The bad side is that the carbon is also organic and bacteria feed off this media and can quickly grow inside of the filter if not chlorinated.

I also have the Everpure setup in my Vectra and had been super chlorinating the water I put in my fresh tank to keep the tank clean, but now realize I also need to be more diligent and keeping the filter sanitized throughout the season as well.

Everpure discusses the procedure to use when ever hooking up to any water source --> http://residential.everpure.co...QL1-2-3-WPS%20IO.PDF

If your not tied into using the Everpure system you should look at Hydrolife which utilizes a technology to eliminate the growth of bacteria in their filters.

Here is a list of water filters at RVupgrades.com--> Water Filters

Looks like I'll stay with the larger filter as the 2 pack price per unit is very little savings.
The RVwaterfilter store posted above is a good price at $29.95.
They also list an Omnipure filter that will fit and offers longer gallonage life. So that is my final decision.
Thanks all Ron

I took our filter out and put in the by-pass plug that came with it. Just use the filter I made up myself at city water connection.

We use bottled water for cooking and drinking. (coffee & tea)

I always filter every drop of water that enters the motorhome with two filters, a sediment filter ($2) and a charcoal taste and odor filter ($4). Thus, I only replace my under sink Everpure filter every 24 months. Works for us.

BTW, I bought the Sears filter housings in 1974.

I am not where I can look at mine, but I am pretty sure it says right on the Everpure filter "replace after 12 months" or something along that line.

We use our MH Dec to April and Sept to Nov so I winterize twice. I drain the everpure for a day then cover the intake with plastic wrap & a rubberband and put it in the freezer.
