Incoming flange? Enlighten me on this term. Dare I risk placing the grit filter before the pressure regulator? I'll have to check the specs on the filter canisters to see what they allow as max pressure.
I have a hair-brained design idea of a regulator/filter set that is demountable from the water bay for placement near the water source. This gem will be a major contender at the international Rube Goldberg finals.
The incoming flange is that white round thingy where the water comes into the coach for many people. You know, where you hook up the water hose. Most of them have a pressure regulator in them that limits the pressure to around 50-60 lbs.
As for filters, I use 2 pur-water filters. the first from the water inlet is a 30 micron cotton string filter. The second is an activated charcoal filter @ 5 microns. The pair of them take most all the grit and taste out of the water, leaving in the chlorine and flouride and all the other things the gov't says are good for you.
When I first moved into this campground, they had just changed from well water to city water. Unfortunately, the city didn't put in a regulator at the connection to their line so at my end, (the end of the line), we had 115 Lbs. of water pressure. I didn't know this until I kept blowing out hoses. I put a pressure guage on and put a regulator at the spiggot.
All was well.
Last month, the owner put in a regulator on the incoming line.
