Water Works

As I mentioned in the last blog, Billy has been working on a "water" project for the fiver.  Traveling around the country as we just never knows the quality of the water.  We try to combat that by using filters and a water softener.  Unfortunately, that can make for a rather complicated system.  Billy's goal was to get everything contained in one make set up easier.
Here is the cooler he you can see he drilled holes and attached fittings to make for easy hook ups to the outside of the box itself.  Now here is what you see on the inside....
He added insulation to the sides and bottom.  He also insulated the lid.  As much as we try to avoid it, it always seems we end up with some freezing temps in the winter.  The little red box at the back is our water softener.....don't ask me how it works, but it does.  You can find info about the water softener at Water King USA.  The two blue tops are the filtration system.  The first filter is a 5 micron jumbo sediment cartridge, polyester, reusable.  The second filter is a Doulton RIO 2000 with 6 ceramic candles.  Now, having said that......I have no idea what I said.....LOL!  You can get more info here at the rv water filter store
Billy's next project was to rework the outside shower and I'll have more on that next post.


  1. Great little invention. I like that the whole thing can be contained in one box. Thanks for posting the pics of this.

  2. Billy may need to 'patent' his design..looks like a great idea!!!
