Looking for replacement cartridges for a water filtration system. The cartridgers are 4 inches in diameter and 20 inches long with a 1 inch diameter hole in each end. Need case prices of 1 and 5 micron filters
You need a “Big Blue” 20″ cartridge.
In order to provide a suggestion, we need to know for what the filter is used:
o To remove sediment and particles (general filtration)
o Or to remove taste and odor (provide drinking water)

Here’s some information on how to change the Reverse Osmosis membrane for a standard RO water purification unit
The following is an outline on how to change the Water Filters cartridges and your membrane for a standard RO water purification unit.
Changing Reverse Osmosis Filters and Membranes Continued »
When I put in (replace) the 15 gallon per day Reverse Osmosis membrane, I lose water pressure to almost a drip.
Is this normal?
It’s possibly one of the following three issues:
REVERSE OSMOSIS UNIT Makes water slow.
o Normal R.O. process.
– Your 15 gpd Reverse Osmosis water purification system makes water a drop at a time. 3 gallons storage tank should be full in 6 – 10 hours.
o Low water pressure.
– Increase to 50 psi. Check for kinked tubes.
o Filters clogged.
– Replace filters.
o Membrane not installed correctly.
– Ensure installation is correct.
How often should I replace my UV bulb?
That’s a good question. You see, many manufacturers recommend to replace your uv bulb once every 12 months of continuous use. However, it really depends on the condition and specific unit in question.
Although the ultra-violet bulb appears to be in working condition, that is you see it emitting visible light, it still may not be good enough to emit at the required 254nm wavelength; therefore it’s advisable not to rely on a simple visual test.
In addition to the above, you may wish to clean the glass whenever you are replacing the bulb since any blockage might impair the effectiveness of the UV light, resulting in a ultra violet malfunction.
Chloramine is a combination of chlorine and ammonia.
To filter and get rid of chloramine, an extensive carbon block water filter (to reduce/remove chlorine part of the chloramine molecule) followed by a RO Reverse Osmosis or cation exchange filter (to remove the ammonia) is needed.
I need a water filter for nitrates. I have some questions about the CuZn Dual Housing below sink filter. Does it waste water like reverse osmosis? And, how much do the replacement filters cost? Thanks for your help.
