If you don’t have a clean water plan, you really don’t have a full-time travel plan. We’ve owned this Seagull IV X-1F Drinking Water Filter for 25 years.
A popular and highly reputable water filter for marine use, The Seagull provides fresh, crystal clear, great tasting water from any potable water source. In four years on the road we have never had a water-borne illness.
Perfect for a small space, the Seagull water purifier is less than half the size of other leading water purifiers and does, at least, twice the job. Installed in a back corner of the cabinet beneath our kitchen sink, the Seagull requires so little space it is almost invisible to us. We never even think about our water purifier until once our calendar alerts us, once a year, that it’s time to change the filter.
The Seagull insures that our drinking and cooking water is better than safe. Yes, the Seagull is expensive, but considering that we never buy bottled water, ever … in the long run, the Seagull is both eco-friendly and, economical. Regardless of whether we are in the Canadian Rockies, Florida, South Dakota, The Mojave Desert, or San Diego our water always looks, smells and tastes exactly the same.
In the last few years we’ve encountered several places where the water is unpalatable. While camping in Salem, a toxic bloom alert was enforced and bottled water was impossible to find. Lucky for us we had a full tank of filtered water on board.
It’s a fact of modern life that filtering drinking water from city taps is a wise decision, if not a necessary one. Harmful bacteria, fungus, parasites and chemicals are often found in city water throughout the Americas. The Seagull takes care of sketchy local water concerns. If you simply want to enjoy your travels without exercising suspicion about every water source, the Seagull is essential RV equipment.
