3M PPS

So, I'm looking at the PPS System that I purchased and I was wondering If I can reuse the liner and the filter. I've heard you can use a 1QT Ziploc freezer bag and just rinse the filter. Has anyone else tried? Any suggestions would be awesome! I'm trying to make this paint job as cheap as possible...those liners/filters and lids are ridiculously priced.

I was also wondering... Stick with the DeVilbiss Regulator or should I upgrade to a RTi regulator?

Thanks!

Don't trust the freezer bag - pitch the filter - strain the paint as you fill the cup and if the DV reg. is a diaphram type like HARG-510 use it, if not go for the RTI its a great little regulator.
