Good price, good product.
on January 21, 2010
I purchased this filter kit for my Watts Premier WP5-50 RO unit. The package's shrink wrap was broken (I guess) in shipping, but each of the canister type filters had individual shrink wrap so I have no worry about dirt contamination. The final 'polishing' filter was not shrink wrapped, but it had end caps so I have no worry there.
Just so this is 'clear', a RO membrane is not included. This is a kit for sediment and carbon filter replacement only, NOT the RO membrane. Still a good price.
The final filter (indeed a 10 inch one) had a sticker on it, with some specs = (Watts Premier, Model RIL-10a, flow 0.5gpm, capacity 1000gal, NSF certified, pressure 25-100psi, temp 32-100f, and flow direction arrow) also the package had a 'Made in USA' flag logo on it.
Just for fun, I purchased a replacement polishing filter for my WP5-50 RO unit at the 'Watts Premier' web site. It had a sticker that read only 'Made in Taiwan' They look to be the same filter with different manufacturers. The Taiwan Watts filter did include the end 'screw in' fittings that may not be needed but are nice to have. Enjoy.
