Purigen reactor

Anyone know where I can find the following filter? I Have looked all through Pentek's site, google, ebay, cant not find one. I can find the housing no problem, but no such luck with the filter.


- A 2 and 3/4" diameter by 5" pleated polypropylene filter cartridge. This is 30 micron as I could not find a 50 micron cartridge to fit the housing

The Siemens website you gave me only accepts a $50 minimum order, and all I need is a $7 filter. Anyone know a way around this? or another site?

I dump the purigen into a plastic bowl and do the standard 1:1 bleach followed by a soak with Prime. Having a duplicate filter cartridge and extra Purigen allows you to get back up and running while regenerating. If you have the room, the 9 and 3/4 inch housing works well and is more broadly available. You can also find 100 micron pleated cartridges which do not clog easily.
