RO polishing carbon stage 5 filter direction of flow ?


Last year I replaced the filters. I noted the flow direction of the polishing carbon filter, & installed the new one the same way, even though label would be upside down. Today I did a filter change, & started wondering maybe the direction is wrong. My question is, how would know if it's wrong ? Maybe the pic would tell you something, flow is to the right. Thanks

What does your carbon filter look like? Are both ends of the filter the same? If so the orientation doesn't matter which is common with RO filters.

I'm talking about the "polishing carbon filter stage 5" labeled in the pic. Not the screw on carbon filter.

The outlet of the filter goes to the house/faucet on mine is the top left. If the filter has a direction, I don't recall, that would define it!

Thanks, my outlet (flow) is on the right, & goes to the house/faucet, so must be correct. I'm curious though, what would happen if that filter was turned around, restricted flow? black water? idk.
