The red button is a pressure relieve valve. If the system is leaking from the valve, try pushing the valve up from the underside of the cap where the valve is located. If this does not work the housing needs to be replaced. You do not have to replace this with a name brand like GE. All you need to do is make sure the housing that you are purchasing is the same size.

To replace the filter cartridge. Do the following;
1. Assuming that you have a pump in your water filter
system, shut it off.
2 Close the intake valve before your filter system.
3.To relieve the pressure, open the faucet after your
filter system. Any of your faucet for that matter.
4.Once the pressure is relieved, you can of course
replace the the filter cartridge.

Testimonial: "That worked, thank you! After I removed the canister I inspected the pressure relief valve and couldn't see anything wrong with it. Thanks again."

Hi,
I would shop around for a different water filter supplier...there is no reason ofr that happening unless you are not changing the filters regularly...like once a month...
most filters are a standard size and it should be easy to get them somewhere else...

It sounds like there is quite a bit of sediment in the water. The filter you are using may be a very fine micron 5-10. Try using a 30-50 micron filter.

Purchasing a water filtration system for a house


This is very location dependant. Different parts of the country have different needs. I suggest that you contact 3-4 companies and have them submit proposals. They should take a sample of your water, analize it, and then make a reccomendation based on your needs.

Ge smartwater wholehouse waterfilter main housing failed flooded house


Why did it fail? How did it fail? Was it the plumbing that failed? Replace it with a Pentair filter housing, 10" housing, 20" housing or Big Blue housing and make sure it is plumbed in properly. It is very unusual for a filter housing to fail unless it freezes up.

Canisters on my ge smart water filtration system gxsv10c model are stuck tight. How do i get them open


Make sure the water is turned off to system. Open the faucet to system to drain any water and keep the faucet turned on to keep pressure off filter housings.
1.Use the wrench to take housings off.
2. If they still won't budge take a small 2x4 block of wood and hammer, set the block of wood on the RIB for the housing and tap with hammer.
3. Change the o-rings in both housings, lubricate with silicone lube and lubricate the threads on housings with silicone also.
3. Rinse housings with small amount of bleach and clean thoroughly.
4. Replace filters and housings.
5. IMPORTANT: Only tighten housings by hand. NEVER tighten housings with wrench.
