Every water filter product contains a cartridge that needs replacement after its lifespan, and these cartridges are made of fixed material.

So check the bottom or the back of the filter to find the model number. If you have purchased the product online, the invoice will have the model and product serial number. 

Once you have the model number, you can easily order the faucet cartridge that supports the model in your home.

These are long series of numbers sometimes combined with letters and numbers. Once you find the model number, go to the Kohler website, see the product details page, type the model number, and get the component list that the product is made of. 

The information is arranged so that the regular users who do not understand the technicality of the product could also find it easy to read.
