Measure the dimensions of the filter, and see if Blitz makes a hybrid cabin filter in those dimensions. I highly recommend it if you can find one that fits.

I've always said I would gladly lead the lynch mob against the person or persons who decided growing non-native grass in my yard was more acceptable than have a free range yard that grows with is supposed to grow in open fields in my geographic area.

If you spent less time mowing your neighbour's lawn and more time on your own patch of green you'd find that the dandelions will migrate next door..

Did I ever state that the neighbour's lawn was actually "grass"?

Ahhhh but the point is that the dandelions have already migrated making the burn irrelevant. More of an ash really.

Dandelions are pretty in bloom, good for the bees and butterflies, and the greens are delicious.
Grass as a lawn is a weed any way you look at it. Useless, miserable, water intensive, far too much work. It's a flex.

I put a sign on my lawn that says "World Famous Dandelion Farm". It makes people want to take one home. By June 1st my lawn is weed free.
