How do I disconnect the water supply plastic tubing to the filter housing assembly


Since you didn't say what brand or model it's hard to be sure of what to tell you. They are not all the same.
Anyway here is a source of videos that may help. Just try to find one that is like yours.

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.

How do you change the filter to a culligan water softener


Here are instruction to remove the filter housing. This is from my tips posting. Culligan filter housings are just Pentek/Pentair water filter housings and these tips apply to virtually any filter housing.

Leaves detergent in despencer tray


Most of the time this is a dispenser housing issue. Remove the dispenser tray from washer and make sure it is cleaned very well. In the more serious clogs, you may need to clean the hose from the dispenser to the drum.
  1. Make sure the detergent dispenser drawer is opening. This issue occurs due to jammed soap dispenser. Dispenser Distribution System is located in the top left corner of the washer. The system consists of a motor that turns a cam gear. The Detergent Dispenser Assembly is located under the washer top. Begin by removing the washer top, console and front panel.
  2. Separate the water inlet and window washer tube from the boot. Pull the water inlet tube from the outlet connector of the detergent dispenser. NOTE: When reinstalling the water inlet tube, wet the water inlet gasket on the detergent dispenser with water only. Do not use any other lubricant. Align the tab on the water inlet tube with the indentation on the dispenser connector and slide the tube onto the detergent dispenser assembly.
  3. Remove the screw securing the front of the detergent dispenser assembly to the top front frame member.
  4. Disconnect the vent tube from the detergent dispenser assembly. Remove the screw securing the detergent dispenser assembly to the top left frame member. Slide the assembly back slightly and lift the assembly out.
  5. To remove the detergent dispenser motor assembly,disconnect the cam follower spring and lift the cam follower from the diverter cam and rotate the diverter cam clockwise to access the motor mounting screws. Check for all the connections to the dispenser motor or anything obstructing the dispenser drawer functioning.
  6. Pull the diverter out and clean it, including the shaft, spring, etc.

Removing cover from big blue 10 water filtering system


The best way to get it off is as follows.
1. Turn the incoming water off.
2. Open the closest cold water faucet and let it run until pressure is relieved.
3. Close the outlet of pre-filter housing.
4. Push the pressure relief button and hold it down until no more water comes out.
5. Use the filter housing wrench to unscrew housing.
6. If it is still hard to take off repeat steps 2-5.
7. Clean the housing and o-ring, lubricate the threads of housing and head with silicone lube or plumbers faucet lube. Lubricate the o-ring with same.
8. Replace filter
9. Only tighten the by hand NOT with wrench.
10. Turn water back on and hold pressure relief button to bleed off air.

The number one reason for filter housings being so hard to get off is people tightening the filter housing with a wrench when re-installing it.

How do you change the filters in a Culligan RO system


For a 4-Stage system:
1. Open the housing caps of the components that house both the sediment and carbon filters (you may need a residential spanner wrench). Put each filter into its proper housing and tighten housing caps MANUALLY. Do not use wrench.
2. Repeat process with membrane housing and membrane (if membrane needs replacing).
3. Remove inline polishing filter by disconnecting tubing at both ends. Replace with new inline filter and reconnect tubing.

Filter


The filter panel may be replaced from the top or bottom but it's less hassle to replace from the bottom because the top tray retains a small amount of water and also because you must be mindful of working around the feed tube assembly. Also, when replacing the filter panel, clean both trays (requires removing both trays, water feed tube and drain tube) and drain tube ... use a 8 water -1 bleach diluted solution or other anti-bacterial solution and wipe the trays and pour some into the removed drain tube (not the feed tube!) and shake it up a bit. Be careful though as you do not want bleach solution getting in your eyes, nor on your skin and clothes!

Leaking around thermostat housing tube to mainfold 85 Cad El


You should be able to remove the tube without removing the water pump again. If a new tube is not availabe you can use JB weld to fill gaps and pit holes. Make sure its not the intake manifold gasket that's leaking at the corner.
