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.
