It’s a well-known fact that motorhome plumbing systems can be tricky to maintain and clean, with water stagnating extremely quickly. You could end up with plasticky tasting, foul smelling water and worse, with bacteria and algae possibly making the water undrinkable or harmful.
One solution is to clean your fresh water system and the other is to fit a water filter. WM aquatec supplies products for both purposes. This company was established in 2010 to make water filtration products for motorhomes, yachts and buses.
Silverpad is a new product from WM aquatec, which uses silver ion technology to protect against biofilm formation. This doses the water with silver ions every time you refill your tank, which eradicates bacteria, viruses and fungi / yeasts or renders them inactive.
One Silverpad is ideal for an 80-litre tank, but a number of Silverpads can be combined for larger tanks thanks to an innovative new push-fit system. A Silverpad preserves 17.500 litres of fresh water, and needs changing once a year to be most effective.
It measures 16.5 cm x 8.5 cm x 1 cm, contains an approved active ingredient according to BS EN 15030 and costs €24.90 (around £23 at current exchange rates).
If you also want added peace of mind, take a look at the “Mobile Edition” Water Filter Set, costing €39.90 (around £37 at current exchange rates). Pre-assembled, the three-part construction allows a quick and easy change of the filter elements.
In addition, the housing is equipped with a vent valve. The retention of rust, sand or other contaminants in the water is effectively prevented by being filtered out and you are thus guaranteed a better water quality.
The “Mobile Edition” water filter set also protects pumps, boilers, or fittings from contaminants in the water and increases their service life.
