If you're not sure which filters you have, get started by first determining the brand of model of your RO filter system.

How to Determine the Brand and Model of Your RO System

The most accurate way to get the right replacement Reverse Osmosis filters is to identify the brand and model number of your current system.

Identify Your RO System

  1. Identification information is usually found on the metal or plastic manifold that holds the filters in place
  2. The model number may also be located on the back side of the manifold on a small sticker
  3. Generally, labels on individual filters do NOT indicate the RO system brand or model

If there is no label on the RO system or you are unable to identify the brand and model, then use this guide to identify and select the system image and description that most closely matches your current Reverse Osmosis system

Once you've determined the brand and model, follow the filter and membrane replacement schedule for your system to ensure your Reverse Osmosis system functions properly.

Most drinking water filters should be replaced every 6-12 months. But Reverse Osmosis membrane only needs to be replaced every 2 years. The time length can vary based on water contaminants and water usage.

To simplify the filter replacing process, we offer replacement kits that bundle everything needed for the annual filter replacement. Start by selecting your brand on this page and then follow the link to your system model to see if a replacement bundle is available.

How to Install Reverse Osmosis Filters

When the filters arrive, follow the instructions on how to change the RO filters and membrane. Note that when changing RO filters, it is strongly recommended that you sanitize and clean your RO system at the same time.

We also provide step-by-step instructions for replacing reverse osmosis filters yourself.
