4h 4min, mar 21, 2014 y - Alternate Suppliers
Historically, we have ordered filter elements through General Electric. In 2014, procurement of this part was changed to alternate suppliers. In both cases, we have ordered the same part manufactured by 3M/CUNO. However, per GE consultation, the filters procured through GE receive an additional wash at the factory to preclude the possibility of conductivity spikes during system startup after filter replacement. We have no indication that the alternately procured filters are receiving this additional wash.
