    May 3, 2021I am setup in an RV park with water and sewage hookups. I have always used a water pressure regulator at the water source so I don't damage my water lines. Recently I put an inline Camco 15 buck water filter and attached it where the hose goes into the ca...  more

      Gene&Nancy May 3, 2021 Filter should not decrease your pressure to a noticeable amount.

      jim roulston May 3, 2021 Put the filter before the pressure regulator

      Kevin & Leslie May 3, 2021 I’ve found that the “super” filters and the green “organic” filters tend to reduce pressure faster / more.

      You could get an adjustable water pressure reducer on the down side of the water filter.

      Joe and Lori May 3, 2021 Like Jim said put before the regulator. Before you connect to the regulator flush the filter for about 15-30 seconds. May have some crud in the filter

      SilverSport May 3, 2021 some parks the water pressure is low to begin with, I only use a regulator when pressure reach 80 psi, but my system is all PEX tubing and my feed hose is rated at 120 psi.

      Michael Zehr May 3, 2021 Oldhippie, we were at a park in Arizona in March and my water pressure was low. I went to a flea market and hardware and made up a pressure gauge setup to check the incoming water pressure. I found that the incoming pressure was low enough that I didn’t n...  more

      Ronnie and Kristy May 3, 2021 I use an adjustable water pressure regulator this and it will ensure your pressure is never too high. You can also adjust it and it to the correct pressure and it has a guage to tell you what the pressure is.

      Tom & Barb May 3, 2021 I connect the camco filter to the spigot. Make sure you buy the one with the 6" hose with spring around it, as this helps with the ergonomics of attaching to the spigot. Then run a hose from the filter to the water regulator, which is left permanently o...  more

      Clringo May 3, 2021 Couple of people hit it square on. Try this turn water valve on- check pressure and flow at park, that will check for crud and let you know what park has. Then put your pressure regulator on and check flow again. Then your filter and check flow then hose ...  more

      Dan-n-Jo May 4, 2021 oldhippie1954 there is a 2 point problem you are asking. The short answer is: No! What you are experiencing is flow rate not pressure. The filter is reducing your flow rate, however when you shut the water off inside, the pressure will begin to build to w...  more

      Dan-n-Jo May 4, 2021 oldhippie1954 We made a three filter system with universal single stage filters and 3/4" PVC pipe and fittings. The water flows from spigot into a 5.0 microns sediment filter (6 GPM flow rate) then splits into 2@0.5 microns filters (0.5 GPM flow rate). Fr...  more

        Bladerunner May 4, 2021 One needs to be on high alert at the beginning and end of a season. At the beginning of the season, with few trailers in the park, the pressure tends to be higher ( in some cases a lot higher) because of the lack of users. Towards the end of the season, a...  more
