How do I change the filter on a whole house omni water filter? We recently moved into a home that has this installed but there no manual left, so I'm hoping you may be able to help. Thanks.

What factors should I be taking into consideration when buying a portable water filter?

You should think about the following aspects - pore size, type of chemical treatment, life span of the filter (on average), the amount of time it takes to filter on liter/one gallon of water, ease of finding replacement parts and price.

How to open the housing on big blue 20 to change filter

The best way to do this is to shut the incoming water supply off. Open the closest cold water faucet to relieve the water pressure. Shut off the outlet valve. You will need a BB wrench. Push the RED pressure relief button on top of filter as you turn clockwise on the wrench. Lubricate the o-ring with silicone lube, clean filter housing and re-install filter. Only tighten housing hand tight.

High operating cost. Element has 1/2 inch hard water build-up, i.e. calcium, lime. I change the heating element every 2 months. Does the unit have a thermocoupler? can't find anything in the manual or the...

I think your problem is the buildup, which would cause your elements to work much harder trying to heat the water - especially if you have well water as opposed to chlorinated city water, although city water still has calcium, etc. in it.. Add a whole house filter to your water line where it comes into your dwelling - there are a myriad of elements available at varying microns to catch the calcium
and other contaminants. These filters normally need changed every 3 months - I would check your after a month to see what it is catching. These whole house filter systems are not expensive - check out your local hardware or plumbing store, I'm sure they can guide you to the proper set up ( after you verify what they say through some online research) . Better safe than sorry !!
p.s.there should be 2 elements in your water heater - 1 above and 1 below, so after you've installed your filter change both elements - I'm sure you'll find they last a lot longer!! Also - before you cut off water to your home for the install, fill up a clean 5 gallon bucket and RINSE the filter element , then turn off the water supply to your water heater to prevent a loss of prime and water hammer to the pipes.

I have a Maytag side by side with water/ice dispenser in door and filter for water. I changed the filter upon moving into house the change filter light came on and I can't get it to go off. How do I reset the change filter light (it's not time to change the filter)? The model # is MSD2732GRW and I don't have a manual for this refrigerator. Thanks!!

I have culligan house water softner. after i changed my hot water heater my softner stopped working. I dont have a manual to check. any suggestions?

Unless the softener was bypassed when the water heater went in, installing a water heater has no bearing on the softener working or not. Is it unplugged?

I bought my home in 6/09, there is a omnifilter wholehouse water filter u25 installed, in the basement. On the top of the product it says bypass. My question is What does this filter do exactly and what...

Inside the housing is a replaceable filter cartridge. Filters used for this type whole house filter housing come in micron ratings from 5 micron - 50 micron. The smaller micron the finer it filters (that is not always good because it can significantly reduce flow rate and pressure in home). 30-50 micron filters are the most common used. The filter should be changed every 3 months minimum and sanitized with a a cap full bleach when reinstalling filter. Omni filter housings are notorious for the bypass leaking when turned and the bypass freezing up to where it won't turn. There are no manuals for this.
You can find filters at most any hardware store or water treatment company.

Lack of humidity

Try the following test, ( I will resume this is a flow through humidifier)

Spray water directly oin the filter make sure it is saturated. Some water should leak from the bottom. After 10 min measure the Humidity to see if this helped. If there is a higher level of humidity the pbm is that not enough water is saturating the filter. Check the level of the filter & water feed nozzle.

Option 2 is to connect the water feed tube to a Hot water source.

Hope this helps.
