Q1: Do you personally reuse the plastic filter frames for Aerus (Electrolux) afterfilters? If so, what brand of filters and what adhesive do you use? To me it's both foolish and wasteful to throw away good frames if they're not damaged as well as spending extra money for new frames rather than just the filters.

Q2: Has Aerus ever made navy blue filter frames (for the Discovery Advantage 1572E, Genesis 1572F, Genesis LX 1685, Genesis LXe 1717, Epic 3000SR 1717, Epic 2500SR 1770, U112A & Epic 3500SR 1719, U110A)? The only colors I've seen are medium gray, "storm gray" (company term), and light blue.

I'm also curious to know if the upright afterfilters were introduced before 2000 when the white & light blue Guardian C134A came out with the HEPA afterfilter. The Epic 3500SR 1995 manual on Aerus's website doesn't indicate an optional afterfilter.

I have not tried it yet, but I might see if I can hot glue some HEPA bag material to it to give it a HEPA post motor filter.
