The replacement filters and membranes for our H2RO
||5 Micron Puretrex Sediment Filter
||every 3 years||
||1 Micron Matrix Carbon Briquette Filter
||every 3 years||
||SP-11 FilmTech Membrane(36 gal @ day under ideal cond.)
||every 6 years|
||Omnipure Carbon Post Filter (6")
|| every 6 years|
|| Capillary Restrictor Tube
|| every 6 years
||You can normally reuse the plastic fittings on your current
||However, if you need new plastic fittings, please let us know.
For the first 12 years, your only additional major costs should be:
3 sediment filters at $3 each: $9
3 carbon filters at $15 each: $45
1 membrane: $55
1 post-filter: $8
1 capillary restrictor tube: $3
1 tank: $60
If you take the initial purchase price of $175 and add the $177 figure, that totals $352.
If you divide that by 12 years, our system will cost you an average of $29.33 per year or $2.44 per month.
75 gpd Membrane: $75 (if your system does
not currently use a 75 gpd membrane, we recommend that you order a special
capillary restrictor tube which costs an additional $3)
100 gpd Membrane:
$85 (if your system does not currently use a 75 gpd membrane, we recommend that
you order a special capillary restrictor tube which costs an additional $3)
UPS charges or Postage is extra, but we don't charge a handling fee.

REPLACEMENT FILTERS AND MEMBRANE
You don't have to go
back to the manufacturer of your system in order to purchase replacement filters
and membranes. We offer top-notch replacement parts.
On most reverse osmosis systems and water filter units, the parts are
interchangeable. Most systems have three, four, or five stages:
A three stage system normally starts
with a sediment filter, then a carbon filter, and the R.O. membrane. (However, some systems just use a sediment
filter, a CTA membrane, and a post-filter.)
A four stage system normally starts with
a sediment filter, then a carbon
filter, the R.O. membrane, and a post-filter.
A five stage system normally starts with
a sediment filter, then two carbon
filters, the R.O. membrane, and a post-filter.
The standard sizes for the sediment and carbon pre-filters are 2.5" in diameter and
9.75" long. They have a cylindrical hole in the middle running from one
end to the other:
On most systems, the post-filter comes encapsulated in its own housing and looks like this:
so it is not necessary to exactly match your current filter. We can send you a good substitute. However, if your post-filter is the
same size as your carbon pre-filter, let us know and we can give you a substitute.
With regard to membranes,
- if you are not on chlorinated water,
you can use a TFC membrane;
- if you are
on chlorinated water, you must have a good carbon pre-filter (which removes
chlorine) in order to use a TFC membrane. Otherwise, you must use a
(or add a carbon pre-filter).
The standard size for a TFC membrane is 1.75" in diameter and 11.75"
long. Here are a photo and a diagram of the FilmTec TFC membrane:
When ordering replacement filters, it is helpful to us if you let us know how many
stages your system has.
