I was replacing a GE filter which had the quick connect fittings. Have use the quick connect for years without problem. To install this filter, you need to cut of the quick connect fittings. I had several leaks and had to uninstall and reinstall several times. The job which took less than two minutes with the quick connects took about 45 minutes with the new connections . Other than the poor design on the fittings, I have no issues with the product.

This filter works just like an internal one. It was easy to install. We will continue to purchase this filter as long as Home Depot carries them.

You follow instructions cutting the old fitting off square. You insert the tubing in the filter and then turn on the water. Water squirts everywhere! it cannot be tightened or fixed. You regret cutting off your fittings. You go to a different home supply company and buy a good filter and new fittings. You throw the GE filter in the trash.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 5051294 Ease of assembly of the water filter.
I did have the quick connector for the GXRTQR, but in trying to bend the copper tubing so I could get the filter to fit I broke one of the connectors. Since they don't make them anymore I had to go with this filter (GXRTDR). In doing so I added some 1/4" tubing, which made it much easier to work with, and much easier to connect to the filter. The tubing went right in and it sealed up nice and tight. Actually easier to install than the one with the quick connects. I would highly recommend this one.

Needs more infor on installation. Could also use a wall clamp so can be attached to a solid backing and not have to purchase separate piece. Filters well.

We purchased a "certified pre-owned" fridge at a great price; however, it did not have the built-in water filtration system we had in our previous fridge. So, with a quick 2 minute read of the instructions, I installed this external water filtration system and the water and ice (and my taste buds) are thanking me! Easy to install...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ww9901 great product and super price
This is my fourth filter I have bought from Home Depot , GE(GXRTDR). This is super easy to install and is a great price. Instructions are very simple and easy to read and I am a female that can't fix much. After reading other reviews, I am surprised to hear of people saying that it gave water a bad taste. I think my water has great taste and haven't had any complaints from family/friends. Great product and price. I mark on my calendar with model number as reminder to replace regular.
