I also use the dieselsite kit but I get my replacement filters from Napa. Only complaint is changing the filter is a little tough but only because of the location not because of the kit.

I followed the suggested change on the first 2 filters just to see what was in there. Wasn't much in the first 2. Then, I went until it plugged. It did. At around 5000 miles. A plugged filter is not a problem with the Dieselsite system. Just need to check every once in a while.

Is it plugged? Feel hose after filter, is it cool? plugged. Hot? not plugged.

Dieselsite. And here are the replacement filters I got.
$5.29
Fleetguard Water Filter No Additive WF2077
These are much better quality than the baldwin that comes in the kit.

Happy with my DieselSite kit, though a bit pricey. Nice looking truck 01redcrew.
