You should be OK using a 5 micron. I've used 5's and 10's on mine but mine is a different RO.
To buy in bulk usually you can simply search out filters using a search engine and try several to find the best price. Watch the shipping some will add shipping unless you buy a certain amount, then you get free shipping.
I've used both the string wound and the "melt blown " type, I like the second type far better than the string wound. Far easier to get a good seal when changing elements.
The 5 micron will filter better but will need changing sooner. I order 5's but if they are out of stock I get the 10's. I buy a full case at a time, which is 25 in my case.

running an RO is scarry at first, but you will soon find that they are quite simple to operate. Just follow the manufacturer's instructions on cleaning.

Believe it or not I have found that some of the maple manufacturers actually have the best prices on bulk filters. If it isnít leader then check with lapierre, cdl, d&g, and MES
