Introducing the all new Flostream Micro HIFLO10 water filter

The Flostream Micro HIFLO10 water filter has been specifically designed to suit the needs of caravans, motorhomes and service vehicles. Designed to be as compact as possible, the Flostream Micro HIFLO 10 provides a mighty 10 litres per minute flow rate of fresh and clean filtered water.

Using a water filter in caravans, motorhomes, and other service vehicles such as horseboxes and welfare vehicles avoids the need to carry single use plastic water bottles to ensure clean and fresh water.  Until now, many water filters, have simply been too large to fit into the small spaces available in touring vehicles.

Flostream micro drinking water filter

The Flostream Micro HIFLO 10 uses three stage multi-media filters which removes all impurities down to 10 microns.  For comparison, a human hair is 50 microns in diameter, and anything below 40 microns is invisible to the human eye.

The sophisticated Flostream filters ensure that all chlorine taste and bad odour is removed, as well as heavy metals and other impurities.  In addition, with its built-in bacteriostatic control, the Flostream removes cyst and harmful bacteria, and prevents any risk of micro-bacterial growth when the water filter is not in use.

The Flostream will significantly improve the taste and quality of water coming from a vehicle’s water tank, no matter how long the water has been stored there or how poor the original source of the water.  Using a Flostream also removes limescale, helping keep taps and sinks clean.

The Flostream Micro HiFLO10 measures just 169mm by 133mm which means it is easy to fit into any compact space in a cupboard or under a sink.  The replaceable filter is easy to change, simply by unscrewing the filter from the Flostream body.  Each unit is supplied with a housing bracket, and 0.75 inch British Standard Pipe thread or 15mm push fit piping connector.

Zeb Elliott of Penguin Refrigeration, the UK distributor for Wave’s RV and caravan products, says the new compact Micro HIFLO10 has been developed as a result of customer feedback.  “We are increasingly seeing people wanting to tour further and to more remote spots; and more people wanting to look after the environment and their health by avoiding single use plastics whilst at the same time, being aware of the quality of the water they are drinking.  Flostream filters have been proven to provide excellent fresh tasting and safe water, but have been difficult to fit onboard the smaller camper vans and mobile homes.  Now this compact Micro HIFLO10 provides the solution our customers have been waiting for.  It will filter out all the bad stuff and deliver great tasting clean drinking water even at flow rates of up to 10 litres per minute.”

Costing from £105 inc VAT, the Flostream Micro HIFLO10 is manufactured from Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS) and NSF International (Food, Safety and Quality in the UK) certified components, and can withstand temperature ranges from 4-45 degrees centigrade.  To order go to MICRO Hiflo10 Flostream Water Filter

For replacement cartridges go to Flostream Micro HIFLO10 filters (cost £41.25 inc VAT).

Huge thanks to everyone who came to see us at the National Motorhome & Campervan Show at Peterborough this weekend.
Thanks too to Jerba Campervans for lending us the fantastic Tiree campervan, colour coded to match our solar fridge display it proved to be a real head turner.

The weather was hot hot hot – hitting 40 degrees C on Friday! and we were delighted that the full C51i fridge fitted in the Tiree ran happily all weekend with the 100W solar panel fitted on the roof providing more than enough power to the batteries to keep the fridge running with lots of ice for our drinks!  Although it was almost too hot at times, the weather really allowed us to show how well Vitrifrigo fridges perform, especially in tropical conditions.

Healthy and tasty drinking water with Wave Flostream water filters

Many motorhome users carry bottled water or bulky water storage containers for their fresh drinking water rather than using the tank and tap.  This is often because water from the vehicle’s tank tastes bad, and also has the risk of containing bacteria and bugs.

Now there’s a solution with the Flostream water filter.  Simply by fitting the water filter between the water tank and the tap, the Flostream cartridge removes all major contaminants from the water including lead and other heavy metals, chlorine and chlorine by-products, cyst and other harmful bacteria. With its built-in bacteriostatic control, the Flostream will prevent any risk of micro-bacterial growth when the water filter is not in use.  The Flostream also removes limescale, helping keep taps and sinks clean.

Flostream drinking water filter

Motorhome enthusiast Malcolm Lawrence recently fitted a Flostream into his van conversion.  He said, “We now drink the water direct from our tank, no more carrying water containers, storing them or having to buy bottled water when abroad.   Additionally, it removes the anxiety about the quality of the water. The taste of the filtered water has no chemical taste whatsoever.  We even notice that when we have been away for a month, the water from the tap at home is definitely not as good.”

Flostream install example

Zeb Elliott of Penguin Refrigeration, the UK distributor for Wave International products, says the Flostream’s filter is certified to NSF 42 and 53 standards to ensure that all chlorine taste and bad odour is removed via the replaceable filter.  Depending on quantity of use, the filter only needs changing once a year and as a compact unit, can be located in an easily accessible cupboard.  “While there are other filters currently available, the Flostream is the only one in this sector certified to NSF 42 and 53 health and aesthetic standards.  It is the only filter that removes limescale as well as providing KDF inhibition and reducing heavy metals.  It’s also available in both 3,800 and 7,600 litre capacity,” says Zeb.

“Using a Flostream filter avoids the health dangers associated with drinking water from plastic bottles that contain Bisphenol A and phthalates.  Users also save money on the cost of bottled water and help the environment by reducing plastic waste,” he continues.

Costing from £70, the Flostream comes in two compact sizes.  The Flow2 is 265mm tall by 85mm diameter and delivers two litres per minute.  The larger Flostream HiFlo10 is 390mm by 110mm diameter delivers ten litres per minute.   Simple to install with twist lock head and 10mm, 12mm or 15mm push fit connections make the Flostream water filters ideal for boats, motor homes, campervans and welfare vehicles.

The Flostream drinking water filers are in stock and can be shipped out in 48 hours. See the full product spec or buy now by clicking below.
