    Default Prefilters in bulk

    I know I saw on this forum some where that you could get prefilters in bulk at a decent price. I have searched but can't find them much cheaper than $13 a piece and I can't find where that was posted.
    Thinking I should be changing the filter everytime we use it to keep bacteria down but thats going to add up. How does everyone handle it and where are you buying your 10 house filters?

    What size filters are you looking for? 2x10, 4x10, 2x20 or 4x20?

    I have 4x10 filters on my RO and am going to change it to a 2x20 for this year. 4x10's are hard to find cheap.

    My RO uses 2.5 x 20" filters, I get them at $3.00 each by the case thru Ray Gingerich. I've never been able to beat his price. However I finally found them on Amazon at essentially the same price ($74.95/25). In the past prices were between $4.50 and about $20 each for the same filter. I like the blown poly filters far better than the string wound type.

    Ray sent 5 filters with my RO and said that should be all I need for the first year. I will be ordering more as I do not like the thought of reusing filters.

    Ray is not on the web, but here is a link https://www.waterfilters.net/pentek-...B&hotdeal=5for 2.5" x 20" 5 micron for $2.29 each, and I just checked if I was to order 25 the cheapest shipping would be 6.99 to me in Oneida, NY, estimated to arrive in 4-8 days, faster methods cost more.
