Water Pur filter

Can anyone recommend an alternative replacement filter for a WaterPur CCI-10-CLW? I hate the idea of spending $30 on one if there is another one cheaper that's just as good.

I just spent $25 at Lowe's for filter to fit my unit. I agree, it is a lot of money.

If you do an on-line search, you can find them relatively cheap. Much cheaper than the big box rip off stores.

Yeah, I just took the proverbial "kick in the beets" getting a filter. I have decided that I am going to get one of the whole house fillters (like I have on the water supply in my home) that has a built in bypass (that will be nice when winterizing) and the replacement filters are about $15.00 for a pair.

There's lots of generic brand filters available that will fit that canister for way under $10. Just make sure that its the same dimensions and has the same gasket/sealing arrangement.

My filters

I decided to create a filter and pressure regulator in a case that I could move from one RV to the next. It has the household type filters with carbon for taste and micron filter for contaminates as well as an adjustable house-type regulator with gauge that all fits into a case I bought at Container Store. I have a short hose that connects it to the city water connection on the RV. It just sits on the ground when hooked up and stows when not. I attached a couple of photos. Never done it before so I hope they show up After I took these photos, I put quick connects on each end and on the hoses.

These are the folks that I bought all my parts from for my filter box.

Heaven help those that quote themselves.

I installed the water filter from Lowe's, and soon removed it. It restricted the flow so much that the missus or I either 1 could stand it. And of course I had thrown the label away so that I can't get a refund. $25 down the tubes. I think I am just going to leave the in-house filter canister empty, and use an inline filter at the hydrant.
