Recreational Vehicles

There is a good chance the water supply at the RV park is already contaminated with bacteria. You need safe & convenient drinking water the Acuva way.

Owning a RV allows you to explore with few limitations and can provide a lifetime of memories. To ensure those experiences are positive, there are some fundamentals to RV ownership. One of the most important being access to a safe supply of drinking water. Without safe drinking water you are putting your health, and the health of those with you, at unnecessary risk.

You need to ensure your water supply is safe to drink and that it is free from any nasty chemical aftertaste or unpleasant odor. 

There is a good chance the water supply you hook up to at the campsite or RV park is already contaminated with bacteria, parasites or viruses. Basically everything you need to make your camping experience memorable – for all the wrong reasons – is alive and well and coming out of your tap.  

So the water supply you hook up to poses a potential health risk. Great. How do you ensure access to safe drinking water when you need it? There a few available options, but each comes with limitations:

  1. Bottled Water – the common solution to having drinkable water onboard, but the plastic refuge will quickly pile up in your RV and this is not exactly an environmentally friendly solution.

  2. Boiling Water – a tried and true method to eradicating any bacteria in the water, but it takes too long to cool down for the water to be drinkable

  3. Water Filters – commonly used in households, but when it comes to filtering the water from your RV’s tap, the pore sizes in water filters are too large to prevent illness causing bacteria from being in your drinking water. 

Wouldn’t it be great to just tap into the water you hook up to at the campsite knowing it is safe for consumption? Well yes, but how do you ensure that water source is safe for you to drink?

The answer is quite simple: UV-LED. UV irradiation is well-accepted by both the EPA and the FDA as a safe, effective method of bacteria control.

A UV-LED solution from Acuva ensures you have safe drinking water when and where you need it.
