mounting a whole house filter horizontally

I have limited space in my small pump house and would like to install a filter horizontally to eliminate the need for lots of elbows. Can this filter be mounted horizontally?
Asked by: bruce
Not recommended horizontal. Would be tough to center cartridge and screw bowl on, never would seal to the cartridge. And when changing, you would get water all over. And vertical lets dirt settle on the bottom.

how do you install this on the sink and please reply

Asked by: Anonymous
I would install the filter under the sink, on the cold side of the water coming to the sink. If you need filtered water on both the hot and cold water, then you would be best to install the filter before the hot water tank, as they don't hold up too long in the hot water. In that case the water would go through the filter and then split some water going to the hot water tank and the cold going to the sink. Normally for one sink, I would go with just the cold water. Most of the dirt in water will fall to the bottom in the hot water tank, and you don't drink the hot water anyway as a rule.. If you can I would put the filter in line with the water coming into the house, and filter all the water that the house will use, not just one sink, and change the cart. once every month or two or 2 to 4,000 gal of water.. hope this answers your question

Would two of these installed in parallel work.... a inexpensive substitute for a two stage filter?
Asked by: Rick
How could 2 units in PARALLEL reduce pressure further? There would be 2 separate paths for the water to flow. Filters in parallel would increase the flow capacity and lessen any drop in pressure. I think you are confusing putting the 2 filters in line (series) with the parallel installation. See attached picture.

Whole Home Water Filtration System is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 44.

I bought it with some garden hose adapters to filter water at my marina before using to winterize my sailboat. My marina has some old pipes that have a lot of algae that is in the water. I used a simple white particulate filter element with this filter to remove the floating stuff. Worked great. Now I am considering replacing the white filter cartridge with one of the charcoal types to filter water of unknown quality for use in my on-board water tanks that is used for drinking.

I've purchased the same model GE filter before, and sought out an identical one for our current home. Very pleased with the quality of this item, which I ordered online because my local stores were sold out. Definitely recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, solid, simple but beware of cartridges you buy Had one for 2 years now, no problems, just got another Jan 2013 for drinking water. No valves, no bypass which is what I wanted, valves always gum up and stick so I put my own ball valves before and after this filter. Includes a bracket but MAKE SURE you put the fittings on the housing with brackets or have to unscrew them. WARNING: for whole house use, put TWO filters in parallel for good flow. WARNING: cartridge FXUTC is for drinking water use only because it only lets 1 gallon a minute go thru it (has a tiny orifice hole by design so water flows slow and has time to react with carbon filter stuff). Filter FXUTC filters out 0.5-1 micron which is good. For whole house filter, use string or fiber filters BUT they will not remove chlorine well since flow is too fast.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 3/4" fittings but not 3/4" flow Although the filter allows for 3/4 inch pipes running in and out, it downsizes it to 1/2 inch as it goes into the filter making my 3/4 inch cpvc lines less useful to maximize flow. It kinda defeats the purpose of having 3/4 pipes running through your house when you are only getting 1/2 inch flow through the filter. In my opinion if you have 1/2 inch lines running on cold and hot this may be for you, however if you run 3/4 on cold you may want to look for a different filter as this one would probably be better suited for under the sink..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tasting water. Easy install, DIY Bought this filter system/Carbon Filter for drinking water. With some little effort was able to install under sink and feeds cold side as well as fridge ice cube maker. Chose this system over the other types due to the large amount of water filtered before having to change filter, pressure/flow rate does NOT change, portability (we rent, so when we move the filter system comes too) and price; very inexpensive in the long run... Taste is much improved over Massillon water and whatever is in these pipes.... water has NO "floaties"... Install valves on both sides, In and Out!! Install date 9/13/2015, no issues as of today. Also purchased: Carbon Replace Filter 2 Pack, Model # FXWTC, Store SKU # 201426, Internet/Catalog SKU 100034332

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great - correct installation crucial This filter works great and will pay for itself many times over when you think about reduced wear and tear on your appliances and fixtures from sediments and other contaminants. Incorrect installation will lead to unsatisfactory performance, so follow the directions. I used sharkbite fittings to adapt to my 3/4 cpvc pipe and they work perfectly. I didn't want to glue in fittings that would have to be cut out for reinstallation later. Use the included bracket! Not using it will cause stress on the connections when you unscrew the lower body to replace the filter and will cause premature failure of the fittings or upper body threads. Beware that the input threading on this model is all plastic, so correct installation of the threaded connectors is crucial. If you overtighten, the teflon tape will tear and it will leak. In a metal female threaded connection, you can overtighten, but in a plastic one the body will warp slightly. If they leak, unscrew the adapter, remove the old teflon tape, rewrap with 12" of new tape, and tighten by hand. Once you can't tighten by hand, use a wrench to go an additional 1 turn. test the connection and SLOWLY tighten until no leaks. I had 1 side perfect first try and the other I had to redo once. I have no doubt that all of the previous reviewers that reported leaks overtightened. If you have a seeping leak and try to tighten more, it gets worse. The only way is to remove, retape, and reinstall. I use the 30 micron fiber filter with this body and I found no noticeable drop in water pressure. I am going to try the string filter next. As a whole house filter I would not recommend the carbon filter, as the reported pressure drop in other reviews lead me to think it would be unacceptable. This is so inexpensive I will get a second one with the carbon to put under the sink for cooking/drinking water only and leave the 30 micron filtering the whole house.
