Sigh, I guess I'm lucky because I got 4 years of use out of this thing before the clear canister sprung a leak, while others only got a year or two. Like many others, the canister developed an unexpected hairline crack down at the bottom and water was coming out in a strong fine mist as well as drips. I knew there was a water leak somewhere because the basement smelled wet when I entered it. Don't know how long this had been going on, but I luckily had a bucket underneath the unit, which was filled halfway when I discovered this. The dirt floor of my basement was swollen from the water which had not been caught in the bucket. After removing the canister and emptying the water, I inspected it and found another hairline crack at the bottom which had not YET begun to leak. The canister had only been handled when changing the filter, which I personally did every time, and it never suffered any abuse. I guess I have to buy a whole new unit if I want to use the extra filter that I have waiting in the wings. If I do this, I will only expect it to last a couple of years tops. By the way, I've noticed that every review response from GE as well as the installation manual for this unit lists a different phone number to call for customer service. What gives?

I was worried about the large sealing area for the filter housing sealing adequately, but I installed it and there were no problems from the beginning. The nice feature of this filter is that you can plumb it with either copper or PVC pipe. I specifically wanted a filter that I could install on 1" PVC to minimize pressure drop because it is in a well water application. It has been installed now for about 3 weeks with no issues. It has definitely met my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is easy to change out filters also worth the cost as I explain... Just want to note that putting in a pre-filter like this one going into your home is the best idea. Whether you have an RO system, water softener or some other kind of filtration in your home. Using this as your whole house pre filter or your first filtration system is the best idea. This will help you prolong your appliances and any other filtration system that uses household water. Some people who reviewed this product said it was very difficult to remove. First off it should never be that difficult to remove to change out the filter. You shouldn't over tighten it like the nuts holding your tire to your car. Second, which is the most over looked issue and why people have the most difficulty removing the canister to replace their filter is that they do not use the pressure relief button or didn't read the instructions properly and are not aware of what this button is or does. When you go to replace the filter you use the built in water shut off and bypass valve. Just turn the valve to stop the water flow. Press the pressure relief button to allow the pressure that is built up to escape which will allow a little water out when you do that. It happens quickly in about 2-3 seconds. The use the tool and remove the canister and replace the filter. Check the large O-ring and it is suggested to add a little bit of food grade grease to it. I would recommend doing this especially if you live in hot climate areas. It will prolong the life of the o-ring and of course make it easier to remove the cannister for your next filter replacement. Once you have the cannister screwed back on open the water valve just a little bit to allow the water to flow into the filtered cannister area along with pushing the pressure relief button. This will help relieve the air that is in the cannister. Keep hold down the button till you see the water level raise all the way to the top until the air is all gone and water is coming out of the pressure relief button. At that point you can turn the water valve all the way open. Remember to open up a faucet not far after the filter to allow water to flow out for 15 minutes then do it again after an hour for another fifteen minutes. This allows for any remaining air in the system to run out and be able to filter water at optimal condition. Also remember to reset the timer button by pushing down for 5 seconds and seeing it flash 5 times. It will be set to flash in 90 days to remind you to change out the filter. Now depending on how much water you use maybe 90 days will be too long or too short. But if you notice a significant drop in pressure in the water to your house than it would be a good guess to replace the filter. Normally you can tell best by when you take a shower if you are not feeling as if there's enough water pressure coming out of the shower head. The biggest plus to getting this type of filter cannister is that you do not need to add shut off valves before or after the filter housing. That is do to the fact that it has it built in at the top. You can select to bypass the filter. shut the water off at the filter or to allow the water through the cannister to be filtered. You can get filters that are cheaper with out the built in shut off and bypass valve but then you need to buy those valves separately and install them. The cost of your installation will wind up being much more than if you just bought this "all in one" filter cannister. I hope this helps anyone who has had any issues with their filter replacement or thought of buying one.

The instructions say to not install outdoors. I live in Florida and our main water line going into the house is outdoors and I have no choice to but install outdoors. I just made a shelter for it.

The 1 inch fitting drops to about a 3/8 inch opening in front of the valve. I returned this unit when I saw that.
