Three-phase Water Purifier Shows at Open House

156924602089323.jpgTwo water treatment companies teamed up on the Boondocker RV water purification system designed to let RVers access fresh, safe, clean water no matter where they go.

Produced by No Dirty Water and Clearsource RV, the Boondocker includes features that are said to be ideal for RV water systems in OEM or aftermarket applications.

The Boondocker will be on exhibit at the K-Z RV space at Open House.

NDW produces portable oxygen-to-ozone-based water purification systems. Clearsource RV produces water filtration systems designed and engineered for RVs.

The Boondocker was developed to address RVers “concerns about water safety and quality,” Clearsource RV Founder Stuart Price says.

“Boondocker provides RVers with peace of mind, knowing that they will have access to clean, safe water no matter where their adventures lead them.”

The three-phase water treatment system in the Boondocker includes a 5-micron filter to remove sediment and particulates; an advanced 0.02-subMicron filter to further reduce those same contaminants, as well as pesticides, heavy metals, and more.

The NDW activated oxygen-to-ozone purification process disinfects from common contaminants such as E.Coli, coliform and legionella, while also improving taste and smell.

A Shurflo water pump is integrated into the Boondocker allowing users to draw directly from lakes, streams and rivers directly into the freshwater holding tank. The pump can also be disengaged when using pressurized water at campground hookups.

Boondocker “is giant leap forward in bringing contaminant free, great-tasting water to RVers no matter where they find themselves,” NDW Vice President of Engineering Tim Williams says.
