Remove poor design water filter in MBS
No criticism for anyone who has made very clever workarounds, but I have not had any trouble at all removing the filter canister even when full. It only has to be moved 3' to the sink, or 1' to a bucket to dump it into.
Also in the idea of removing the filter and using only an external filter - that only filters the incoming water. If using the water tank, it does NOT filter the water coming out of the tank. That could include bacteria or any other impurities in the tank. Even if not being drunk (the water, not the owner...), it's still disturbing to think of people and their families showering or washing hands in unfiltered water.
