Shame on you! NO that filter should be changed at least every 3 months. You need to sanitize the housing with 1 tsp bleach, rinse completely and reinstall filter. If it got in to water heater you may have carbon fines in hot water for a long time. Take all the airators off faucets and flush completely.

Cant get thermostat housing off (hot water thermostat)


You will have to get the bracket out of the way, just to get the housing off and back on in an easy manner that won't cause a leak.
The hose may be the one from the valve cover area, carrying the blow by and crankcase fumes back into the intake-so part of the positive crankcase ventilation. So that hose could have a lot of carbon like deposits. See if you can twist or work it back and forth carefully. Not sure how it connects or where it comes apart, If it is plastic, sometimes they break no matter how careful- age makes them very brittle.

Sediment ALWAYS before carbon. This protects the carbon filter and gives the best service life. Carbon filters are more expensive so in hard water areas you might like to change the sediment filter twice as often as the carbon filter. At the least, change both filters every 12 months.

Once every summer, while we are at work and the ac is adjusted to a higher temperature, the condensor stops working. We always have to call a repair guy and he charges a lot of money. The coils look fine....


The fan that is outside,cools your compressor,so long as the condensor is not dirty or obstructed in anyway, its good to spray it once in awhile so that it can breath, change your filter inside your house
normally if your filter is dirty, the air will not circulate, your compressor will get hot and can be damaged
also by not changing the filter as often as possible the evaprator can get clogged, if the evaporator gets clogged the fan inside the house that is trying to push the cold air will not be able because the fins
on the evaporator are dirty and clogged up. below the evaporator is also a tray that allows water condensation that builds up to drain outside thru a pvc pipe, once in a while put a little vinegar in the pipe and it will keep it from getting clogged up. this pipe is usually located close to your condensor, make sure it can drain easily and is not blocked by brush or anthing. normally needs to be at a slope down so it can drain easily. good luck!

I am losing water pressure, but only on the hot side. Cold pressure is fine, as you add hot the pressure fades, the hotter the less pressure. This is at all points in the house. The water heater was...


You have a clog in the hot water line.
If problem is at one faucet, then remove aerator and clean, then disassemble lines underneath sink.

If problem is at every faucet, then that moves search close to water heater.
Look at hot water line that exits water heater and trace that line to first Tee.
Look at cold water line that enters water heater and trace that line to Tee.
Clog is located between those 2 Tees.

Buy pressure tester that connects to hose thread.
geno_3245_251.jpg
Connect pressure gauge to hot water heater drain valve.
Then conduct same test you did at faucet.
See if pressure drops at tank.

If pressure drops, then clog is on cold side of tank, and probably hot side too.
If pressure does not drop, then clog is on hot side of tank.

Suspect 1 is any place two different metals join. For example galvanized pipe and copper.
Suspect 2 is supply pipes that exit top of tank. Take apart and look inside pipes for corrosion and sediment lining pipe walls.
Suspect 3 is elbow. Disassemble pipes and look for sediment and flakes of rust.
Suspect 4 is all suspects above, each having sediment and corrosion.

Cold water pressure poor in shower. Just had Rheem installed.


You might have clog in water lines.
If shower is only place where low pressure exists, then clog is probably at shower valve.
Disassemble valve and see if clog will flush out.
From there, you have to keep moving back along cold water line looking for pipe filled with sediment or elbow that has obstruction.

If pressure problem is bad at every cold tap, but doesn't affect Hot water, then clog is inside Cold line somewhere after water heater connects to cold line.
Buy a pressure gauge that connects to water hose.
Buy adapter that also fits pipe thread.
For example Brady BTG 100.
Test outdoor spigot for baseline pressure.
Open cold tap inside house and see how much pressure drops.
Close cold line and open hot tap and see how much pressure drops.

Next, move pressure gauge along cold water line.
Take apart pipes and inspect for obstruction at elbow or pipes filled with sediment.
Look for any place galvanized pipe connects to copper pipe, since this will be likely place for obstruction because of bi-metal corrosion.

I have a hotpoint hot water heater it's about 6 years old. When I turn the hot water on it runs very slowly the water pressure is very low and it's like this throughout the house how do I fix this problem...


You have clog in the water line.
Since all hot water pipes are involved, clog is probably near water heater.

Buy pressure gauge at hardware store that threads onto hose connection.
Brady BTG 100 at Amazon
Picture of gauge

Check outdoor pressure for baseline pressure in your home.
Turn off electricity to hot water heater for an hour or two so there is not scalding water.
Open drain valve on water heater to see if water heater is clogged with sediment.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-will-not-drain.html

Put pressure gauge on drain valve and compare with outside pressure.
Open hot water spigot on bathtub and see if tank pressure drops ... if tank pressure drops significantly with bathtub spigot on, then clog is on incoming cold water before tank, and could be on outgoing hot water pipes too.
If tank pressure stays about the same, then clog is on outgoing hot water pipes.

Clog can be sediment caught in cold water shut off valve located above tank. Open and close valve and test pressure again. Take apart incoming cold water pipes above tank and check for sediment. Replace valve. Look at condition of cold water nipple on top of tank.

Sediment caught at hot water elbow near tank.
Sediment can fill up old pipes. Take apart hot water pipes above water heater and see condition.
Look at condition of hot water nipple on top of tank.
You may have to take apart pipes up to first or second elbow.

Pipes can decay at joint where copper pipe connects to galvanized pipe. Check for copper to galvanized connections on cold or hot pipes and replace section of galvanized pipe. Copper pipe will probably be good, the galvanized pipe will deteriorate. Replace copper-to-galvanized joint with 3/4" non-conducting union from hardware store

How to replace filter on an undersink culligan reverse osmosis filter


Turn off the incoming water supply, turn off the valve on storage tank, open the RO faucet and let pressure off. Have a pan ready, remove the sediment pre-filter housing and post-carbon housing.
Use latex gloves when changing filters, add 1 tsp bleach to each housing and clean them thoroughly before installing filters. Make sure all bleach is rinsed out before installing filters. Turn the water back on to system, turn the tank back on and run 2 tanks of water out before using water again.

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.

I am getting slimy film floatys in water from my reverse osmosis system. I just changed the sediment and activated carbon filters.


When you replaced the cartridge did you by chance clean out the unit before putting in the new one? If not, then this is where it is coming from. I would suggest that you take it apart again and make sure that it is clean inside. This slime build up in the filter is completely normal and may also indicate you waited a little too long to replace. It also depends on the type of water you have as well.
