Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JackofAll Bottom Cracked with normal use and not UV exposure
Filter housing CRACKED after 1-3 years and sprayed water in the basement for several days. Sheetrock ruined and has to be replaced.
Bought 2 of these one for my shop and the other for the house. The one at the house developed a crack at the bottom curve of the filter holder after a 2-3 years. It sprayed water on my drywall for several days before i happen to go down stairs and see the water in the floor. I called customer service to let them know of the defect and they do not want the defective part back and would give another unit for replacement if it has been within a year but it has been longer. I believe there is a defect in the manufacturing that is causing the plastic to harden and split. If you have one of these keep an eye on it as yours could be next to flood your basement or crawl space.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by justaguy Entry Level Water Filter
A solid product, I've installed dozens of them in homes which have problems with sediment in well water. The clear canister is a plus, allowing the owner to see the state of their filter. Best with basic 10 micron wound rope filter cartridges. Good product for basic well water problems which won't require more than one cartridge replacement every 30 days.

I have this as a secondary filter to remove remaining iron from well water and it does a good job. However there is an air release button that sticks and leaks for awhile (this is the 3rd filter I have purchased and they all do it). Don't place filter where you would not want prolonged dripping. I use a bucket to catch the drips so not an issue for me. Other than that, it does a good job. Cartridges easy to replace.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by reboot Release valve leaks
I should have listen to the reviews about the red release valve!!! The installation was a bit difficult given the location. The shutoff / bypass vale makes it very difficult to get a 3/4 wrench on the left side but I did get it installed. It worked great for one day but the next day I went to check for leaks and I accidentally hit the red release valve. I could NOT get it to stop leaking. One day usage!! So disappointed and frustrated. I was able to use the bypass valve to get the release valve to stop the leak until the next time I am at the house to install a different one.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mike dont buy
I knew from other reviews online to expect leaks from the lever on this bypass type model, I thought I'd chance it since this model had the other feature that where most like my old cracked leaking one. The reviews were right, water poured out at the lever, luckily I also bought the entry level GE system that worked just fine and saved me a maddening trip to buy still another model.

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.
