Never considered bacteria in the filter . I leave mine attached to the hose ,coil it all up and screw the ends together to keep the water from getting out and dirty stuff from getting in and put it in the storage compartment . If bacteria can get in the filter what about the hose? Do you put the hose in fridge too ?

After going down the 'have to have a water filter system' rabbit hole for years, all my filters are permanently stored in a landfill somewhere.
So much happier without all that mess.
And if you don't store them correctly, they can make you sick, which is what you are trying to prevent.
We just got tired of the replacement cost (especially since retiring and using them constantly), the PITA of setup and tear down, the gradual loss of water flow as they aged, and maintenance in general. And I'm not convinced they actually did much of anything.
Have been filter free for four years now!!! Yay!!! I realize my filter free approach is not for everyone, but it has sure worked for us.
