GXWH20F Red Button Leaks

My GXWH20F filter started leaking from the red button just after my first filter change....can not get it to stop. I now see MANY similiar complaints on line but not soutions other than to try to keep pushing the button or put a bucket under the unit to catch the dripping water. UACCEPTABLE! Is there a solution or do I need to go buy a unit from a reputable company??
Asked by: Anonymous
When you replace the filter use a can of air to blow out the red button and push on it and spray air at the same time problem done

how often do you have to change the cartridge?

Asked by: James
It depends on the quality of your water and the amount of sediment your water contains. You may need to change it once a year or you may need to change it every one, two or three months.

How many gallons per minute flow my I expect from this unit, and what size are the connections?

I like to know before I order this unit. Inlet pressure is 50 lbs.

The female threads are 3/4". providing your filter isn't clogged with debris (is new/fresh)10 gpm would be minimal

Do I turn the bypass valve lever toward me or away from me

Asked by: Momma62
It will depend on the orientation when installed. If the water inlet to the filter is to the right, away from you is Bypass and towards you is OFF. If the water inlet to the filter is to the left, away from you is OFF and towards you is Bypass.

Whole Home Water Filtration System is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 129.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from whole home filter 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 out of 5 by from 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 1 out of 5 by from Installed this GE whole house filtration system yesterday at the same time I replaced my well wat... Installed this GE whole house filtration system yesterday at the same time I replaced my well water pressure tank and pvc plumbing in the well house. The housing on this unit leaks water around the outlet port. During installation the 3/4" pvc adapter with teflon tape applied to the threads screwed in almost all the way by hand and with the wrench applied the fitting never did tighten until it butted up against the housing. Applied three additional applications of teflon tape in an effort to build up and tighten the thread contact but this did not really help in the end, still drips. Am changing out this assembly tomorrow with a different one. Also, as stated by another commenter elsewhere the red pressure release button sprays water everywhere when pressed and is slow to reseal. Cannot recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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 2 out of 5 by from LEAKING RED BUTTON SOLUTION 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from red pressure release valve leaks Owned the house 2 months so I do not know how old the GXWH20F filter is but after replacing the filter, the red pressure release valve is leaking all over. Moved the control handle to bypass position temporarily. Not a happy camper.

Changing filters the O ring gasket swells from the grease that is supplied causing the sump to leak and replacement O rings are $12 EACH? IF you can find them.
