The E2 kit is supplied with an extra-fine 0.2 micron filter. These E2 filters remove 99.99% of bacteria, parasitic cysts, algae spores and mould.

NOTE: the E1 and E2 cartridge and kits have been superseded by the high performance HF10 cartridge which provides improved properties over the E2 cartridges. See 3M HF10 cartridge. The HF10 uses the same mount bracket and blanking plug but they must be ordered separately, not in a kit. This old description page has been left as a live page because it provides useful information about the system.

This easy to install do-it-yourself kit comes from the manufacturer of 3M water filtration products which has been developing residential and commercial water filtration systems for over 90 years and is one of the world's leading producers.

Now it has introduced its new in-line water filter for motorhomes and caravans, promising cleaner and better tasting water for drinking, food preparation and cooking, plus bacterial inhibition.The system also offers an exceptionally long cartridge life with a singe cartridge lasting an entire season of six months - many competing products should have their cartridges replaced every month (and owners who neglect to do this might be inadvertently increasing their risk from bacteria since all expired filters can actually harbour and promote the growth of bacteria).

3M's filters give significant savings in cost and and storage or fridge space compared to using bottled water for drinking - only a fraction of the cost of bottled water, even at the lowest supermarket prices. comment: even if you are not going to get through 7,500 litres of drinking water in a season (well we get thirsty but to be honest not that thirsty), think about how many litres of bottled of water you might use over a whole season and then add up the cost of that. It is also likely that you use a lot of water in food preparation and cooking.

The E2 cartridge filters down to 0.2 micron, compared to the 5 micron of the E1 cartridge

Both filters remove at least 95 per cent of chlorine, taste and odour and cut out sediment , dirt, rust and sand and silt (down to .2 microns in the case of the E2 and 5 micron for the E1), as well as having built-in bacteria inhibition.

The E2 filters additionally remove 99.99% of bacteria, parasitic cysts, algae spores and mould.

See comparative details for the two cartridges here: Datasheet for E1 and E2 cartridges

Installation of the system and cartridge replacement is exceptionally easy, thanks to the fixed filter head bracket which is fitted in-line in the cold water supply to your sink tap, using the alternative pipe fittings provided. Picture - installed under the sink

The filter cartridge plugs into the bracket which has a self-sealing valve so that there is no leakage when the cartridge is removed. The kit also includes a blank 'sanitising plug' - a blanking plug which is fitted in place of a cartridge and opens the valve to allow water to flow through to the taps when you want to disinfect your system. This is because disinfectant solutions would damage the filter cartridge if it was left in place. Once the system has been flushed with clean water the cartridge can be re-installed.
