Good News and Bad News of Lawrence Factor Filters for the Alkin...
I ordered the LF filter for the Alkin 32 and I also ordered the filter for the Bauer 21. They are identical except the Bauer has a metal nozzle and the Alkin has a plastic one. So as far as I can tell, they will both work on the Alkin.
The Bad News... They didn't put that handy blue strip in either of them. So, you can't just look at the strip to see if your filter is used up.
The Alkin manual says to change the filter media after 50 hours or 3 months... whichever comes first. I've been using mine for 3 months but only have 16 hours on it. Real easy to change. I have not tried re-packing the original metal filter housing. But I have a re-pack kit from Alkin and it is about half the cost of the LF filters. I also have the bulk filter media and will certainly try that at some point.
