Do you remove your whole house water filter when sanitizing your system?

I'm ready to run some chlorine through the system and I'm assuming you do this with the filter removed, but I've not been able to find confirmation.

Then replace them with new after flushing the system.

If you have the canister type the inside of it needs to be sanitized too, but remove the actual filter first. The throw away filters, yes, remove all and replace after.

We remove all water filters (including the one in the refrigerator!) prior to sanitizing the system ... and install new filters when we're done.
