Water Filtration for Caravan & Marine
A range of water filters for the caravan and marine markets.
3M Water Filtration's filters for caravans, motor homes and boats are available for new build installation, or for retro fitting by owners or dealers.
Key European caravan builders fit these filters in their new caravans and replacement cartridges are available on-line or from dealers. For self installation follow the multi language packaging or watch our installation video in the tab below.
3M filter provides great tasting filtered water for drinking or cooking straight from the tap by removing chlorine, taste and odour (E1 filter model). Filters are also available for combined chlorine, taste and odour and microbiological reduction (E2 Filter).
Each filter lasts a whole season, or six months, and is easy to install – horizontally or vertically – into the cold water supply line direct to the sink. Replacement, too, is similarly simple and quick. An optional by-pass plug is available for easy sanitisation of the system.
Wherever you hook up or berth or travel to, get best tasting and safest water with 3M E1 and E2 filters.
Chlorine taste and odour removal
Chlorine can be found in mains water because the water authorities have added it to the water for disinfection purposes, to kill harmful bacteria in the water. It can also be left in the water at a low level to provide a residual disinfection level up to customer’s taps.
Chlorine is one of the most common complaints of taste and odour of tap water. Activated carbon provides a simple and effective means to reduce chlorine from water. Activated carbon also can be effective at removing other water taints such as taste and odours caused by trace levels of organics in the water, which can cause for example earthy, chemical taints.
All activated carbons are not the same and 3M offers a range of high performance carbon based systems for chlorine, taste and odour reduction. Either through the use of novel, unique carbon block technology or linked with our pharmaceutical membranes they provide market leading performance for the reduction of chlorine, taste and odour, sediment, cyst and bacteria.
The membranes found in E2 filters reduce bacteria to 0.2 nominal as tested against e coli.
