Customer Questions & Answers

Will this filter remove the rotten egg smell of the well water?

I have a well and my water really smells this time of year. Looking for something to help with the odor. If not, any suggestions?
Asked by: Curtis
I think the smell of your water will be determined by how strong it is. We also have a water softener that filters our water after it goes through the filtering systems. If your water isn't bad, then this might be enough. We also had lime and rust coming through, so needed the water softener along with it.

Why when in the filter position high pressure builds up in the hot water tank and causes the pressure relief valve to discharge. No problem in bypass

Asked by: Anonymous
The GE unit has a check valve diaphragm installed to prevent backflow. Your pressure relief valve is operating because your filter unit is restricting the ability for the hot water to expand into the city water system as it heats. There really is no need for this check vale feature, therefore, I removed the check valve from my unit. Problem solved. The check valve is located in the center section of the filter unit where the upper edge of the filter element contacts the housing.

Installed a General Electric (GE) GXWH40L Inline Water Filter with our GE SmartWater Softening System several years ago. The GE FXHTC high-flow household replacement filter is no longer stocked at the local Home Depot, but was available online. My preference is always to use the OEM parts, even if the replacement cost is higher. The water treatment system has been one of our best investments. Household water quality has been greatly improved. Clothes Washer, Dishwasher, plumbing fixtures throughout the house and water softness have all been greatly improved. Highly satisfied!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to operated and reasonably priced I have used this filter in two homes Ive lived in. It is a simple to change filter canister. There is a pressure release valve mounted on top. (I installed a valve on either side of the filter eliminating any pressure from gravity). I use the lubricant once in a while. I don't over tighten. My water pressure is 45psi it should never be more than 55, most sink and toilet hardware will fail under higher pressure..I usually go 4 months between changes. I have municipal water.

You need to replace the filter unit every 90 days BUT although it is a GE unit, The Home Depot no longer sells the GE Replacement filter but an off brand. Why, nobody can tell us. The off brand does not appear to work as well as the original GE replacement filter. Our opinion!

The GE filters that I ordered were shipped to me promptly and without incident. These are great filters and although they recommend you change the filter every 3 months you can possibly use them 4 or even 5 months depending on the water conditions. Thanks again for a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works good thus far Filters more than just sediment or so it says. Bought this because Lowes didnt have a whirlpool replacement that filtered out more than sediment. Not an exact replacement but works fine so far.

There were other options available, but I chose it because there is a noticeable difference in the water inside my home.
