Water filter cartridge replacement?

I need to replace the inline water filter cartridge but the current one has no information on it nor does the housing? Does anyone have any information regarding the replacement?

They are a standard type filter available at home depot, Lowes or Walmart. There are different quality of filters depending on the type of water you are using but you should be able to find them. Just take out the old one and measure it so you get the same size. Have fun getting to it, you have to be able to stretch and contort your arms to do it. Many have relocated there filter housings. Another miscalculation on Redwoods part!!

In our Redwood which is the 31 SL the in-line filter is a standard 10 inch filter we are always trying to get out the smell a sulfur and so we always use a carbon filter

They are a standard "whole house" filter. You can spend as little as $6 up to $30 depending on how much and what type of "stuff" you want to filter out. Read the label on the filter packaging...it will tell exactly what the filter will filter. We full-time and usually replace ours every six months. I also installed a drinking/cooking water filtration system that use three filters...the filters are pretty expensive; however, the system is on par with the reverse osmosis system we had in our "traditional" house.

I always make sure it is 5 micron for adequate water flow. Some of these places don't have great pressure. Some filters also give a flow rating.
