    Hi all,
    I'm looking for a reasonable less expensive source of Chloramine carbon cartridges for 10" water filter housings.
    For the last 6 years, I'm using a 3 stage HMA filter with 1 micron prefilter and 2 Chloramine carbon blocks (either form Spectrum or Pentek).
    Recently, I upgraded the tank form 120l to 340l, also the water change increased from 50l every second week to 150-200l every week. The 25l barrel method was not suitable anymore and I have water mains behind the tank and a 4 stage carbon filter that is used to refill the tank.

    I'm not a big fan of adding chemicals for dechlorination or use RO.

    Thank you

    Is there a good reason you can’t use plain tap water and just add prime?

    The entire idea behind the HMA filter was to fully automate the water change.
    At the moment only the ATO is functional. I need to change some plumbing before the water change feature will be up and running.
