Answer: 
Yes. I might add when changing, do NOT over tighten the plastic fitting as they break very easy. The good news is that replacement parts are very easy to get.

I found that water quality remains constant even when the RO membrane and charcoal filter is quite clogged but what changes is how much water it filters per hour. So to answer your question, simply when it no longer meets your demand for a certain quantity of water, you can't make enough for what you need. After I replaced both the RO membrane and filters I can make at least 1 gallon an hour which is Read More

Answer: 
Depending on your usage, about once a year. We have gone as long as 2 years in our family; but usually, once/year. If the membrane clogs, the water will bypass and you still have the two solids filters, but you miss some of the chemical advantage.

I've read responses that indicate replacement in 1, 2 or up to 4 years depending on water quality. I just don't know how to gauge where my system falls in this timeline.

Simply when it doesn't meet your demand for fresh water (assuming it previously met the need). I have replaced mine twice (four years and five years) but the second time I waited too long until I was only getting about 1 cup an hour whereas the first time I replaced it prematurely, probably could have gotten more use out of it. I had even purchased a device to measure turbidity but it was normal the only thing that changed was quantity of water output, the quality was constant. The clearest sign that it needed replacement was that it would only produce a small amount of water and secondly I no longer heard the gurgling noise of the system draining. In fact I thought the output drain line was clogged but it wasn't, rather it was that it was clogged at the front end (RO membrane and charcoal filter, it had brown algae tinged water in it).

Answer: 
I replace mine every year. Depending on the amount of minerals in your water you may have to replace more often. But I would think yearly should suffice.

Grab it with pliers and pull it out, you will throw away the white center pipe that is wrapped in the blue membrane so it doesn't matter if you damage it.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works! Crystal clear water. Have used for over 15 years and by testing water every few months I can change only when needed saving both time and money. It is easy to change and the water is crystal clear. March 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reverse Osmosis Replace Membrane Works fine on our home filtration system. Easy to find part. March 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RO membrane replacement Easy to replace, used pliers to pull out by gripping small white plastic center tube (once outer casing opened) since it was firmly in place (damaging it is irrelevant since it is discarded with the rolled blue membrane). Replacement mesh filter was hard to remove, I had unscrew connection and push it out from the back rather than the recommended method of pulling it out with a toothpick. I was unable to seat at the bottom the new wire mesh but I used tubing with new blue connector (has pinpoint hole in it) to seat it as you screw it back together. The blue rolled membrane has a sticker on it that I removed since the sticker reduces the surface area, why they don't recommend removing I don't know why, removing it will only increase filtering rate a small amount.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by looked high and low but the home depot had it, CHEAP. At first when i called the first few company's looking for Filter, i got very very high quotes. Sometimes as much as 3 times more than home depot. Long story short, ordered it from HD. The had it sent from another store and called me when it came in, took about 5 working days..Over all good price, happy. September 15, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad filter - it costs me the time and energy on replacing and testing and diagnosing the problem, and a month of holiday without purified water!! I don't know if I am the lucky dog or what, I replaced all three filters (two pre and post filters and RO filter), exactly following the instructions, however, after the replacement my system is stop producing water. I called GE support, and I was told to resanitize and probably increase the pressure of the system. I did all that, and still the system refuse to produce water. Then I called the support the third times, followed steps provided by the support guy, identified the OS filter is defective, which is a brand new OS filter that I just got!! I hope I am the only one that is not so lucky! The pain is - it costs me the time and energy on replacing and testing and diagnosing the problem, and a month of holiday without purified water!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Replacement Filter Replacing filters for an existing filtering unit. The unit filters pretty good which is needed since we have bad city water. Once I figured out how to replace the filters it was pretty easy. March 10, 2015
