Anybody using the Ifilters brand from Home Depot

Water filters see picture.

They seem to be much less expensive than everybody else.

Thanks

What are you using it for? As a filter for water going from shore into a water tank, I'd use something like that.
For drinking water I'd be going a bit more sophisticated.

Since I am in the design phase. And want to create a recirc shower setup.
And Need for drinking water etc.

I am open to suggestions.
I have seen the flow diagrams from the pump pre-filters to three filters for drinking water.

trying to not spend another 700 on filters... which seems to be the magic number for everything I do lately.

This I'm not sure how much help I can be with. I don't like the designs I see online for these, it seems like you're one tiny step from gross and nasty in the shower, the last place I'd want it.

If I were designing a shower with the aim of conserving water, the components list gets long and complicated enough that I think I'd just be better off with a bigger tank. 90 gallons grey lasts us quite a while. We just upgraded to a macerator toilet and so the 40 gallon black is feeling a bit tight.

I would use reverse osmosis, full stop. I hear you about $700, but its what you put in your body. Drinking water, I think is reasonable to invest in.

We use the Waterdrop G2:

1:1 drain ratio is pretty good... The waste line drains back into fresh so nothing really is wasted. It goes to its own faucet and to the fridge for ice. Downsides- it needs power, specifically 120V AC.
