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.

Frigidaire FRS26HF6BW2 side by side Refrigerator, water out of valve ok with good pressure but no water enters the filter, unable to disconnect water line input to the filter to see if clogged. How to...


The plastic feed line from the inlet valve in the bottom right hand side of the back going up to the top left hand side feeds the filter. You can shut-off the water from the house tap, and then cut the plastic filter feed line in the middle somewhere, and install a john-guess coupling on the inlet valve end of the cut line. Then you can tip that line into a bucket, turn on the water tap and see if water comes out into the bucket, if it does, then proceed to the next step.
Sometimes the filter cartridge has a thin piece of plastic that remains on the cover, obstructing the water inlet ports in the filter housing. Always use a mfg.'s specified filter, not a Chinese "Knock-Off".

How do you change a culligan water softener filter


The filter housing will have either a shut off valve before and after the housing or a valve on top of the housing that turns (Black).
Shutoffs before and after.
1. Turn both valves off
2. Push the "red button" on top of filter housing and hold to relieve the pressure off housing.
3. Unscrew housing to the left (lefty loosey, Righty tighty) You should have a housing wrench.
4. Remove filter, clean housing, lubricate the o-ring with silicone lubricant.
5. Replace filter, Screw housing back on (Hand tighten only)
6. Open inlet valve (slightly) while holding down the "red button" to relieve air in housing.
7. Open inlet and outlet valves and you are back in business.

PS if the housing is very difficult to remove.
1. Shut off inlet valve
2. Open the nearest cold water faucet and let it run until no water
3. Shut off outlet and repeat procedure as above
Good Luck, RJ

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.

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 do i change the filter in the amana my ice taste bab do i need to cut the water supply off to change the filter


Water filter is located in the upper right hand corner of the fresh food side.

Follow these steps:
  • These eight inch long filters are housed in their own compartment. The base of the compartment can be released by pushing in on the release clip found at the end of the housing unit. Allow the base of the housing compartment to hang down while you remove and replace your filter.


  • Twist the spent filter to the left (counter-clockwise) and gently pull on it to remove it. There is an automatic water shut off to keep leaks and spills to a minimum.


  • Remove the new filter from its packaging. Remove the plastic wrap, and peel off the aluminum topping. Insert the new filter into the housing unit. Twist the filter to the right (clockwise) until it clicks into place. Replace the base of the filter housing by cliping it back in place.


  • Condition the filter by dispensing several glasses of water through your refrigerator. This ensures that all fine carbon particles have been removed.


  • Check the filter and the inside of the refrigerator for leaks. If you find a leak, remove and install the filter again.

Filter canister stuck


This is a very common problem. There are many reasons for this.

1. The canister was tightened with a wrench when re-installling. NEVER tighten a filter housing with a wrench after replacing the filter! Only by HAND! This is the main reason they are so hard to remove.
2. Filters swell in the housing.
3. The housing itself can swell.
4. The pressure relief button does not work properly.
5. Sediment buildup causes back pressure.
6. Sediment gets trapped on the threads from previous filter changes.
7. Off brand filters, especially those made overseas, frequently are not sized according to specs and can cause these problems. It is best to stay with a brand you know and has worked previously.
8. A bad o-ring will cause people to over tighten the canister because of leaks. Inspect and lubricate the o-ring (every filter change) and replace it yearly.

The best way to remove a stubborn filter canister is to shut off the incoming water, bypass the water softener, go to the nearest cold water faucet and let it run until the pressure dies off. Turn off the outlet on filter, hold the pressure relief button down on the housing (to relieve any more pressure) and remove the housing with the "appropriate" filter housing wrench. If it is still hard to remove repeat the process. After removing the canister, clean the head and canister threads with a clean cloth, lubricate them with silicone lube or plumbers water supply lubricant. It also helps to clean the inside of the housing with a 1/2 tsp of bleach, rinse and wipe it out thoroughly. This prevents any introduction of bacteria into the water system, which is also a very common problem and where "smells" can derive from.

UNABLE TO REMOVE FILTER ON ZANUSSI, EVEN THOUGH UNSCREWED


Having made sure you have unsrewed it all the way, then try pulling from side to side as you are unscrewing it, if you still can;t get it out, then something is stuck inside the filter, or the filter housing, this will entail removing the pump complete to clear blockage.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.
