I prefer filters. I cut a small piece from the scraps I have left over from my Sure Seal (I customize my wafer and sure seal for my scars that are in the way) and cover the filter...the Sure Seal is breathable and waterproof so it allows the filter to work and prevents leaks from it (I shower daily, too, without problems). I have been doing this for about
3 years without issues
Something to remember: Filters do not work when laying down so you may have a balloon when you wake up but once you empty is will work again...gravity is part of it.
Not everyone likes to use them and some manufacturers work better than others so try a few...as much as I love my WOC Nurses, I have taught them A LOT over the years!
