Where to buy filters?

Postby kirkharrod » Fri Jun 13, 2008 9:04 am

Noob here.

Can someone post some links on where to get the various filters?

I have everything I need except the external filters (5 and 1 microns) to build the heated upflow system. I swear I think I have read every post on 4 different forums!

Can members list the brands of filters that they use and where to get them?

I use a single Racor 1000 2 micron element a year. About $15.00 at West Marine, probably the most expensive place to buy one.

Heated upflow system supplying my car, my house heat and my water heat.
