What is the OEM under sink water filter?

When we picked up our 25FB there was a water filter in the box of goodies, but no info on what it was or where it went. I'll admit it....I couldn't figure out what it was so I tossed it. I now know it was suppose to be installed under the kitchen sink (there is apparently a winterizing pipe installed in it's place). I would like to install that filter since DW is very picky about water taste, but I cannot find any info on the filter. I'm sure there are several companies that make them....I just a little push in the right direction. Is it a #3 filter?

Landrum, here is a less expensive source for those filters.

Filters Fast - Search Results for Pentek GS-10RO Inline Water Filter

One more thing. I believe the "-B" designation is for the 1/4" opening. My filter requires the 3/8" opening (the"-C"). Make sure of your diameter before you order and don't make the dumb mistake of ordering the wrong size (1/4") like I did.

Good luck!

I hate plumbing. I mean I love plumbing....I hate working on plumbing. I pulled the winterizing section out and it has 3/4" outside diameter male threads on each end. I'm not sure 1/4 or 3/8 will fit. Guess I'll go buy a couple different size filters for some trial and error ( which is usually more error for me which is why I hate working on plumbing).

Take your winterizing tube section to Lowes and you can figure out the proper fitting sizes there. They may very well have the filter in stock or could order it or you could go home and order online once you are sure of the proper size fitting.

Landrum, my addled brain takes a bit to get started, but I remembered (after your last post), that there's a nylon transition piece that you will also need.

Your dealer should have taken care of that, but…

The transition will need to be from that 3/4" od to a 3/8" or if you can find it, a 1/4".

Perhaps Lowes or HD has these transition pieces, but don't get your hopes up too high.

I see now where you can buy these filters in a kit with the adapters and a winterization Line. I'm just going to buy one of these kits and save myself a lot of trouble.
