Watts RV PRO-1000 Portable Water Softener Review

At Last! Soft Water on the Go!

I have done my best to cover all angles in terms of the reviews I have included on my website. In the beginning, I focused mainly on how water filters and softeners can help in the home or workplace. However, during my research it dawned on me that I had forgotten a certain bracket of people, and that’s the avid traveller.

It came to me that not everyone likes to live in a house because they’re free spirited and roaming the many great Sates the US has to offer is a way of life. This is why I have decided to include the Watts PRO-1000, or as it’s sometimes referred to the M7002.

This little beauty of a water softener has changed the way in which you can wash not just yourself, but your dishes as well when you’re either on a camping trip in an RV or if you prefer to live in a motor home.

Portability and Ease of Use

Measuring 8 x 22 inches, some might say this water softener isn’t the easiest item to take with you when you’re going on a camping trip because it can take up a bit of space in your luggage. However, considering that most RV or camping parks have incredibly hard water, in my opinion you can’t do without one of these.

The manufacturer has made it very easy for you to use, not just in terms of installation, but regeneration can be done is as little as 20 minutes and unlike many other models you can use normal table salt. This means you don’t have to carry specialist salt with you, and you won’t have any trouble finding it when you need some more.


As said, this couldn’t be easier and you will normally only need to use up to 2lbs of salt each time. This softener has also been fitted with a unique y ball valve which makes regeneration an absolute breeze.

Operating the unit is also a very simple job because there are no moving parts or buttons to deal with. The only slight negative I have come across is the hole where you put the salt is a little on the small side.

The End Result

When you initially install this water softener, you will notice a vast improvement. There will be no more annoying white spots left behind on your surfaces or on your dishes when you’ve washed them. Showering will also be a more pleasant experience because your skin won’t feel dry or itchy afterwards.

If you’re a little skeptical about salt based water softeners and whether they actually work or not, Watts has included (for free) as set of water hardness testing strips. This only proves how confident they are that you will get clean, fresh and soft water when you use this softener.

If you’re interested in how much this product will cost you, why not take a look at Amazon. This is one of my favorite online retail stores because they have some of the most competitive prices to be found, and they often have great discounts.
