Vertex Puratek RO/DI filters from other brands

Is it possible to use membranes and replacement filters from other brands for the Vertex Puratek 100GPD RO/DI filters?

Absolutely, as long as the containers are standard, usually 10" replacements.

Membranes are the same as the rest of the unit.
The only caveat is the flow restrictor MUST match.
