It is normal to loose pressure from the filter it must have very small holes in it for the water to pass threw so it can trap dirt and particales from both well and city water. it is normal for it to cut back on pressure, it will cut back more and more as it catches the things that you are filtering out. what you might want to do is filter your drinking water only, under your sink .dont try shower and outside faucets. and you wont have to replace it as often. well good luck and good day to you... sawdust46

Removing Whole House Filters


Frequently whole house filters can be very difficult to remove. The canisters become almost impossible to loosen, even after pressing the pressure relief valve and using a housing wrench. The most common reasons for this are the housing was put back on with the housing wrench, debris in the housing threads and a bad pressure relief valve.

How to remove a stuck filter housing.
1. Turn off the incoming water.
2. By-Pass the Softener
3. Go to the nearest cold water faucet, open it and let the water run until pressure drops significantly.
4. Turn the water off at outlet of filter (If housing has shutoff on top off head, turn this off now).
5. Press and hold the pressure relief button to relieve pressure further.
6. Use filter wrench to unscrew housing (If it still won't loosen repeat steps 2-5).
7. After removing, clean housing thoroughly, make sure threads are clean on filter bowl and housing head. Lubricate threads of housing and head with plumbers faucet lube or silicone.
8. Clean and lubricate the O-Ring (replace the O-ring every couple years or if housing leaks after screwing back on). It helps to flip the O-Ring over a couple times per year.
9. Replace the cartridge filter and screw the housing back on.
10. Turn the incoming water on slowly while holding the pressure relief button down until all air is purged.
11. Open outlet and let water run to cold water faucet until all air is purged.
12. Put softener back in service.

IMPORTANT! Only tighten the filter housing by HAND!
NEVER use the housing wrench to tighten the housing.

I hope these tips help you with the angst of removing stubborn filter housings.

Karcher k3.00 lack of power


Are you using the same water supply as before when you had good pressure? Some house water lines have pressure reducers to protect your pipes and appliances. This can restrict the water flow and reduce the pressure the machine develops. If the flow surges (good, then weak, then good etc) you are not getting enough water to the pump. Try a larger diameter garden hose (5/8"). If you know where your water line enters the house, try the hose bib closest to it. Often times it is at street pressure instead of (reduced) house pressure.

Pressure washer lost pressure in the middle of a job


The pressure valve has stuck in the high pressure position. This prevents anymore inflow and hence no further water will be pumped.

Rebuild the valve... There are O Rings to replace and clean the bore with croocus cloth. Lube the O rings with plumber's grease... good as new! 15 minute job. Get EXACT sized O rings for the unit.
