Cheapest ones use a roll of recycled toilet paper!

You wanna drink water from the cheapest filter?

I haven't bought filters at every retailer around the lake so I can't tell you who is the cheapest however I have bought them at 3 local places in Ajijic and I have found "The Pool Stuff" place by Telmex to be the cheapest for my needs.

I purchase mine at http://www.elmundodelagua.com.mx/


best prices I found.

I use polystyrene since they offer the micron filtering at the least cost.

I now get six months from my pleated and Carbon block filters after I put a cheap filter on the incoming water line. Replace cheap filter every two months and expensive filters last six months. This was an increase from three months. I shop at pool stuff and H2Ola for good filters. Cheap filter I get at Plumber house.

micron filtering
Micron is a measurement - right

Which filters do you use - 5/10/20 micron

How often do you change them

Do you use Carbon filter as final stage - for odor mainly

Oh no Viajero-Tiempo  Carbon/charcoal filter  takes out bad chemicals and such in addition to odor.  As important as UV light for water purity. Block Carbon filter works better than other carbon filters in my opinion and H2ola's.

Change sand pleated filter which is cheap every 2/3 months. (may not need depending on location and well, yes our water comes from wells here)
Change pleated and Carbon every six months.  (use cut in half without sand filter, Block carbon filter is expensive)
Change lighbulb UV  every year even if bulb still works. (water must be filtered for UV light to work properly, dirty water creates shadows that block UV)

20 micron  Pleated
10 micron  block charcoal

Yes Micron is measurement, small number smaller size.
