Be sure to use a potable water hose. Don't use a rubber lined hose. It will taste like hose water

Use a potable water hose and RV hose filter.
The filter can be found at camping world or any camping store.

Is there much of a difference between brands of filters? I see them priced from $15-$50 and a few in the $100-$200. What should I be looking for? I just dont want my wayer to taste like crap, did a few batches with that already, and im thinking they could taste better, the beer is still good but it could be better.

Along with the filter and drinking water hose is there any thing else I need to set this up? Or is it just hook it up to the water spigot outside and run it through?

Just buy the carbon filters from Lowes that for the housing it should come in a two pack. You can just run from the spigot (assuming the spigot water and house water is the same).

I should add you want to run the water slow so you maximize filter time.

What are you trying to filter out of your water?

Do those carbon filters from Lowes remove chlorine and/or chloromine?
