SOURCE: Slow water flow from GE SmartWater under sink water filter.

I solved the problem! The system's manifold (the plastic base you put the filter in) has small black conical shape button. When you tight the filter in, one of the two small triangle-shaped cams (located close to the filter's central hole) pushes the manifold's button, and this opens the water flow. The problem is that the cams are too low and do not push the button all the way in. Take a pliers and squeeze (not too much!) the cams, so they will raise a little: it will be enough to push the button to open the flow completely.

Hi jbboggeri,

Welcome to fixya!

I would go ahead and open the new set and install them. If you get pressure, you know the others were bad and can send them back for a refund.
If there is no change, you can always put them away and use them again later.

Please reply back and let me know how it went. Thanks,

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.

I need a handle for the Smart Water System


Here is the web page for GE. You will probably have to replace the whole faucet. When you call have the model # available for your system so they can supply the appropriate faucet. You may as well order more filters as they will be less expensive ordering on-line. These filters should really be changed every 6 months.

These faucets are relatively easy to replace for the do it yourselfer.

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.

We have a leaking water heater.


As far as a shut off valve on to the water heater, if there is one you should be able to see it on the water line going to the heater. This is not common in mobile homes. If there is not one I would strongly recomend you install one when you replace the heater. If it is going to be a while before you replace the heater you might consider draining it and cutting into the inlet line and installing a shut off valve, so you can turn the house water back on. I hope this helps.

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.

filter system. Any of your faucet for that matter.
4.Once the pressure is relieved, you can of course
replace the the filter cartridge.

I was changing my filter in the ge filtration system, and it says to turn off the water and press the red button. Then it says to unscrew the filter take the old one out and clean the filtrstion system...


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.
