    Greetings,

    I have been searching all over this site...and on the internet...but not finding anything recent and conclusive.

    I am looking to buy some new conical sintered metal filters for Scubapro MK20s:

    Scubapro P/N 01028109

    Where are folks getting theirs? Or are they just cleaning theirs in vinegar and ultrasonic cleaners and calling it good?

    I have seen these:

    Conical Sintered FilterConical Sintered Filter

    Regulator Filter Part First Stage Dive Cone

    AA70 and A176 in the Trident catalog.

    Any ideas, leads, links please? :)

    For a regulator I'm selling as rebuilt, I always replace the filter. For my personal regulators if the filter looks like it needs cleaning-I toss it. If it looks clean, I clean it anyway in the ultrasonic cleaner.

    Try www.vintagedoublehose.com or @buddhasummer for filters.

    I don't know the answer to the Trident question.

    Edit: This thread might be of use.
    Trident filter numbers for scubapro 1st???

    Thanks @couv, I agree with that replacement philosophy :) And I appreciate the info!

    Vintagedoublehose.com is a great place...but had no SP sintered filters of this type available.

    That thread is what I first found but it was inconclusive and over a decade old.

    @buddhasummer , thank you!! I did get some traction with another SB member who will get me some...but, in the future, I will surely take you up on the offer :)

    I am very grateful for the SB community!

    If I can get some definite answers to the original question...a definite source of aftermarket filters online, I will post it back on here for others :)

    Any parts or service kits, I can get, just message me if you ever need anything. I could order bulk filters but don't really want to be sitting on them for years.
