Flirts with greatness, but never manages to get a date...

I have an older water filtration system, and have been unable to find "genuine" replacement filter cartridges. The Whirlpool filter fits fine, but it leaves a bit of an unpleasant taste in the water for several months. This has happened to me twice with these filters so I am pretty sure it's not just something gone south in the city water. The unfortunate taste goes away eventually, and then the water is fine again. For those who may wonder such things, I flushed the fresh cartridge out as they instructed before first use. Maybe next time I'll run twice as much water through and see if that makes a difference.

We have heavy iron from our artesian well and use these filters. We go through a lot of them and buy ours at Lowes. When we buy six boxes of two each we get a contractor discount and they are only $11.59 per box.Filters work fine when fresh but are quickly overcome by our heavy iron. Looking into a better long term solution.

I buy this filter at Lowe's for $19.57 EACH! This two-pack comes to $13.74 per filter which includes shipping! This filter has saved our appliances from all the sediment that comes in from our new well! We're going to have to replace it more often than every 6 months, but that's a small price to pay in comparison to a service call for washers, ice makers, shower nozzles, etc.
