I think the OP is asking what type of filters do you have in the system?

Same here. One carbon and the other is a one micron sediment.

Thanks for the quick replies. Since my space is confined, I am limited to the single canister option. Based on @lgray's response, I think I will go for the combination sediment/carbon filters. Most of my water usage is via the fresh water tank (no direct connection hookups at the campsites we frequent), and we do bring a separate container for drinking water. My main focus was to avoid forking out the $40 every season for a new filter. The smaller micron filtering and gpm improvements are bonus.

In case anybody wants to comment on usage experience, this is the filter that I'm planning on trying first:

Thanks!

Soooooooooo, the Waterpur website doesn't even mention a micron filter level for their products, but we're supposed to believe it's a 5 micron filter because their salesman says so? I call BS on that one. Much like the supposed FR "quality control" program; it looks like smoke and mirrors to me. I'm converting to a reputable name brand willing to stand behind their products with hard facts.

When I called, I was told 30 Micron. With that Micron level, you would think their filter would provide better water flow, not so just the opposite.

Was looking at the same company for my full rv system. I was going to go with the standard vs jumbo. Were you informed of a possible flow issue using the standard? That's my major concern at this point. Thank you for any input you can offer.

Well, I'm convinced. I was about to order the KW1 filter from the supply company that ships for free then got to thinking about the many reports of the FR1 leaking or outright breaking. Ours has been in use since July 2015 without a problem but I decided to change to the Pentek 15862 housing and a 2 pack of DuPont WFPFC 8002 polyester/carbon cartridge. About $38 delivered. Got to do some kind of mod during the Winter downtime.

I read that there is a tit on the KW1 unit that prevents other filters from being used. Is it on the filter or the housing and can it be removed?

It's on the filter cartridge and fits into a recess in the filter housing. Basically, with the stock housing, you're stuck using the expensive cartridge.

The options as I see it are:

1. Use the expensive cartridge.
2. leave the filter housing empty and use an outside filter or nothing at all.
3. Change the filter housing to a standard brand like Pentek and use whatever less expensive cartridge you like.
