ahhh! the leaking red button ( read other reviews below for description of problem.) all over the net you will find reviews of how this product's red relief button starts leaking. for some reason HD does not list them. anyway, here's how i fixed it. take off the cartridge canister, like you were changing the filter. now get a can of that compressed air used for cleaning keyboards. hold the red button in while you spray the air into the channel that leads to that valve. I did it several times, stopping to push the red button many times, then hold it down and spray again. Finally, i got the dripping to stop. what a poor design that a simple ACCESSIBLE screen would have fixed. the filter part works great. the relief button design is terrible.

You should put on on your main line to clean the water before it gets to your faucets. If nothing else it will take care of any small particles that may clog up the small parts of the water savers on the faucets. The great thing is that you can see the filter so not only is it easy to tell when it is dirty, but it will shock you on how much trash comes into your home in the water supply.
I like using the charcoal filter to take out some of the chlorine smell. I build and remodel homes and put one in every new home and most of my remodel jobs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nonsheep Helped a bit with my Hard Water Problem & Sediment Issues
I live in a rural area & we have a hard water & sediment issue... I live in a Modular Home & my home has a area of about 2 ft x 2 ft for the Water Heater to slide into. Quite Small needless to say. Upon purchasing this I ended up having to upgrade my plumbing a little bit & made me consider building a 8x8 Utilities Room off the side of the house with the Water Heater Closet. The Unit came with 1 inch inlets & I had 3/4 inch inlet of water. I purchased some Pex Tools from Home Depot & some Pex connectors & was able to route it to fit in the closet for the rest of this Winter. I used 3/4 to 1inch reducers to get this installed. The Unit is very nice & Sturdy & the Clear Sump will allow for easy checking. The Unit came with it's own wrench for filter changes & all mounting hardware. As for the Little Blue Magnetic Lite Adviser... I will plan on just changing the unit every 6 months. Glad I got this even if it took a bit to get it installed.

This filter is well built with high grade materials. The design is straight forward and haveIng a clear chamber allows you to see inside . It comes with mounting bracket basic filter water quality moniter and wrench to remove the canister. In the box is also a very intuitive instruction booklet.
My install was for portable soda fountain I built for filtering the inlet water supply. Boy did it work well my first run the water coming in was nasty , the water being dispensed was clear of partials and tasted much better than without the filter. I of course being able to see the filter changed it before using my system for the event this unit was designed for. Changing the filter was a breeze with the help,of the included wrench .
I would suspect this filer would be great pre filter for you home with any of the three available filter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jrb Excellent filter!
Our rural water system has very good water, but at times we have some fine sediment. After looking at several filters, this one appeared to have the most features at the best price. Installation was straightforward, I installed it in the incoming water line after the pressure regulator.
This filter comes with a built in valve, allowing for filtering, bypassing of the filter, and turning the water off, which for me is a definite plus, as the valve for my water system is down stairs. Being able to turn off the water at the filter will make filter changes much easier, and also allow me to turn off the water for other maintenance and repairs without running back and forth to the basement. I also like the clear filter canister, which allows me to see if sediment is starting to build up in the filter media.
Overall, this is a good filter at a good price.

This system is to replace a aging filtration system already in place.
What I like about the system is it comes with a wrench to loosen/tighten the sump. Although I just always hand tighten. When you are installing, take notice of the recommendation to place a shut off upstream from the unit. I had already done this, and the purpose is so all the water in the pipes do not drain down when you pull the sump for filter replacement. Another tip is since this unit includes a shut off/ by pass valve, is to shut that valve off and the one upstream, then to press the red relief button b/4 attempting to remove the sump. This makes it much easier and you will probably not have to use the supplied wrench. After you replace a filter, open the valve on the filter, press the red relief valve to get air out, then open the upstream shut off. This way all the air is out of the lines.
Although the blue timer may be an asset for some. I find it easier to take a piece of tape and mark the change filter date on the sump of the system. Where my filter system is installed, I couldn't see the light without a ladder. Besides, I don't like the thought of having to maintain batteries along with replacing the filter.
Having the clear sump is an asset, just in case something happened to the water lines and the filter got dirty quicker than usual.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bakingmom Works well
The system works well and improves the taste and quality of the water. I had it installed and it seems sturdy and will last a long time. I also like the clear canister, so you can see if there are any visible particles and make sure it is clear. It was well worth the cost of installation to have a whole house filtration system and safer water for my family.
