I took out the inline filter in my kitchen and bought two cannisters at Lowes and two 2 packs of filters (white and carbon). Total initial cost was about 65 bucks. The twin filter packs run between 8-10 bucks each. I have the system set up in my tank fill bay so that all incoming water is filtered, weather it's to my holding tank or direct.

I use a carbon/sediment filter from The Depot. I think they are about $5 each. They last about 1 month when we are full time in the winter. It's not like you are drawing water from a creek so I'm not sure of the benefits of all that filtration.

I would suggest you read the specs on these filters really close. I think you will find that they only remove the larger contaminants, and probably don't remove lead and certain types of cysts that the better filters do. It needs to be a carbon block filter to do this, not just granulated carbon.
Good luck & God bless!

Have you checked Lowe's or Home Depot? Our fridge in the S&B was WaterPur and we got them there.
