Full Version: White Cloudy Water

does anyone know why I get white cloudy water from a city hook up at sites. It only lasts about 2-3 seconds but then changes to clear. It happens every time I turn tap on inside RV. I first suspected the water filter and some deterioration but after checking that, it seemed fine.

thoughts?

Sounds like air to me, does it do it every time you turn on the faucet, or just the first time. Also filters aren't lifetime they have to be maintained and changed depending on the water you may only get a week out of it. I was a water man in a previous life lol. hope this helps.

+ 1 Sounds like air.

might be air, might be filter..

I checked filter, it's been in there for only 2 weeks, I guess I expected more life out of them as they're expensive (i know, welcome to RV'ing).

Air... hmmm... I suppose there's no way to check that one, it does seem to happen sporatically... meaning.... I turn on the galley facet, I get cloudy water for first 10 seconds, then it's fine. Might use it on / off again without issue, then come back later in the day and it happens again. Same with bathroom water.....

I wonder if I pour into glass and let it sit, if it dissapates (air issue perhaps) or remains (other, ie, filter)....

More recon is needed... but thanks for the ideas (both)....

We see this all the time, not a problem. A small amount of air and remember water is H2O so the O is the problem. laugh.gif

Yes you need to adjust your H to O ratio. tongue.gif Or as said let some water sit in a glass and see if it clears up. rolleyes.gif My wife will not drink water out of the plastic tanks any way.We take a small distiller that we make distilled drinking water with.Most of the time I just go out and fill up a 21/2 gallon water container from the spigot with out going through the plastic pipe with and adapter from Wall Mart that has a spigot on one side and you hook your RV hose on the other. smile.gif

Try runing water through your supply hose to remove the air from the hose before you connect to the RV. If you get the same thing from the supply hose then it may be the filter or pressure regulator.
