Q. How long does it last?

A.Unlike domestic units that need to be replaced regularly because of bacterial contamination, the B.E.S.T. uses the SilverSafe technology to keep the filters bacteria free, so there is no time limit. It comes down to your usage. The rating on the carbon {chemical removal} is based on chlorine being added at the maximum level. Very often, whether you are at home or traveling, the chlorine level fluctuates, often down to point where there is very little or none at all. At this point the carbon isn’t being used up. Hence, you can often go beyond the rating level. As a guide; if 1 person drank 2 litres of water per day, they would only drink 730 litres per year. 

Q.What should  I do when the filter is not in use. 

       A1   B.E.S.T. ...... Again, the B.E.S.T. IS NOT A DOMESTIC FILTER.              There is no special treatment you need to do. If its used on an RV just make sure the ends are sealed to stop vermin entering when not in use. If its a household unit just flush before you use it again to make sure no ants or other insects have gone in the spout in search of water. 

 

       A2. DOMESTIC.....BIG PROBLEM FOR STANDARD DOMESTIC UNITS FILTER SYSTEMS.     These systems, whist remove the chlorine efficiently, they have no ability to destroy bacteria. So the bugs continue to multiply. A common solution to this is to remove the cartridge. Let it drain completely and dry out. The dryer the better. Unfortunately this could take a couple of days. The reason it needs to be absolutely dry is because the you need to store it in the freezer to kill the bugs. Storing it the fridge can merely send them into ‘hibernation’ .  Putting in the freezer will kill them BUT if you haven’t drained it out completely- water expands when it freezes and becomes ice so this will put a split in the cartridge, there goes the micron rating. So next time you use it, the bacteria are free to pass through the crack. NOTE -this crack may not be visible to the eye.

Q. I fill up at home from my rain water tank, so we’ll be alright won’t we?

A. Maybe, If you had you water tested at home you would fine it has some sort of bugs in it. You have probably built up an immunity to them. When they enter your RV water tank, where you are going or even the heat reflecting off the road could be enough to encourage the rapid growth of bacteria to a level that your body isn’t happy with. - Solution- Always fill with a B.E.S.T. filter to kill the bugs BEFORE they enter your tanks. This wont alter the taste of your rain water, just makes it safe.
