Works to replace R2 Filter, 2/28/2017 11:13:23 PM
By: Mark from TX - See all my reviews
Couldn't find direct statement saying R5 would work replacing R2; only that R2 would replace an R5 filter. Construction is different but fits perfectly. That said the water flow is reduced; the extra filtering I presume. Water tastes good. Less of the black charcoal came through on initial flushing but I ran the water for a minute before using the water regardless. 1. It fits water-tight in place of R2 2. Water runs slower than R2 filter 3. 3 days since it was put in use.
