    I have an all-in-one wine pump and whole house filter. I've used the pentek P1 1-micron filters in the past.
    In Canada I've had trouble finding them for a good price without having to double or triple the cost in shipping.
    On Amazon I came across this:
    https://www.amazon.ca/AquaFX-1-Micron-Sediment-Filter-10/dp/B004K7XBLY

    Looks like it would fit, it's poly-blown instead of poly-spun, also 1 micron.
    It says it's made "to FDA standards"

    Any thoughts on using this for wine? I can get free shipping with prime which is nice.

    If it's FDA approved, has the same filter size (1 micron), and you can get it easier, why not give it a shot??

    Check the all in one wine pump site. I believe Steve recently posted a Canadian Website for purchasing filter components from.

    That website does have cheap pricing, however unless you spend $100+ then it's $20 to ship. So now my two $5 filters are $30 instead of $10.
    When I need more stuff I'll order from them, but hoping these work for one-offs.

    It is free shipping over $100. But buying a couple $5 filters doesn't get you to 100. Thats why I was looking for an option for when I just need 1 or two filters at a time.
