150 GPD RO membrane replacement?

Hey! I hope you are doing well everyone :)


I have the Growmax 500 RO system (150 GPD, 3 stages) and I need to replace the 150 GPD RO membrane. The original one is expensive and searching in Amazon I discovered that the 150 GPD membranes Amazon sells are much more cheaper than the original one. The only distintive thing that the original one has supposedly different is that they call it "High Flow" membrane but I think is the same thing that the standard 150 GPD RO membranes that are selled every place.


Im fine if I buy a standard 150 GPD RO membrane from Amazon instead of the original membrane?

Thanks for the information.

grow shops like to impress,  they added "high flow" to the title because its a 150gpd membrane, not a (low flow) 50gpd ;)  Most sellers would simply call it a 150gpd membrane, because thats what it is.
