This is completely normal. It is very common for new filters to due this. What you are seeing is the charcoal dust being rinsed through the filter, charcoal is what the filter uses to clean the water. You will see in the packaging is a recommendation to rinse about two gallons of water through a new filter to "wash" it.

Black water pours out of the heater system into intex spa


Backwash filter system, change filter media if over two years old, flush out heater. Check water clarity going into the filter system, if dirty..., you may have a broken underground line. Check water clarity coming out of filter system, if dirty.., backwash again and check filter media. Also, Heater boiler headers may be rotting.

Projection TV. DVD works. Cable often seems, "untuned". Static & un-fine-tuned sound of channel with black screen. Then, later, it will come on just fine. Sometimes, will go back to untuned status.


I would suspect your cable box first. I would unplug the power cable from your cable box and wait 60 seconds. Plug it back in and try to watch cable tv. I would also make sure the coaxial cable going from the wall to your cable box is connected properly. I would also make sure the cable going from the cable box to the tv is connected properly. Test your tv and see if it works correctly when you watch cable. If this fixes the issue you are good to go.
  • If this makes no difference use a set of new cables if you have them.
  • If this does not work then call your cable company. They may have to replace your cable box.

I replaced my GE profile MWF water filter (identical GE part) and now I dont have water dispensing and don't have a working ice maker


Quite frequently carbon fines can be flushed from filter and plug the filter. If you have the bypass plug to replace the filter. Put that in and flush system completely. Take the filter and flush it at the kitchen sink. It is best to fill these with water before installing and flush the carbon fines before installing in fridge.

My front load washer is not spinning out the water.


Check for lint and coin build up in filter, which is located in the front. Remove bottom panel to check. If water is pumping out and machine is not spinning but still tumbling at low speed, you will probally need a speed control.

I changed the filter for the water dispenser and after purging the water for awhile, the dispenser stopped working. What needs to be done to get the water dispenser to work again


Put the old filter back on , if water was fine . You never change filter just because a light comes on telling you to . The change filter light comes on after time or usage of dispensor .( Good way for manufacturers to make extra money ) . Change the filter only when water flow slows from dispensor .

"ant A" and "ant B" inputs go black when the tv is first turned on.


Try opening that "Ant A, B" device and apply some fresh solder to all the components inside. Also you can try to by-pass that device using the connector below. One end connects the cable in and the other end connects to the circuitry inside the TV.
