Don't worry about being super precise. Just check it from time to time and if it's dirty then clean it or change it. I'm a licensed plumber as well.

Answer: 
There is no information regarding how often to change the filter because that would all depend on the amount of water anyone uses. I think that when you begin to notice your drinking water quality changing that would be the time to change the filter.

Answer: 
The filter change interval will depend on the quality of your water supply. Water containing high levels of sediment will necessitate more frequent changes. I change mine when I notice a drop in water pressure.

Answer: 
Changing the filter will depend on water consumption and the filter cartridge that you use. This will also depend on the condition of the water supply. I have well water that is high in iron and calcium. I also use a filter element that filters down to 5 microns. I change my filter elements every month. Mine are used to filter water entering into commercial ice makers.

Answer: 
It is not recommended to install this system sideways; it will make filter changes very messy. However, if the system is installed in this orientation it will filter the water as intended.

After installing it with Teflon tape and pipe thread compound, I thought it was water tight. After turning on the water it started leaking at the brass threads going into the filter and also the O-ring seal. So I took it completely apart and started again and repeated the process of re-installing Teflon tape and compound, I also greased up the O-ring. I then turned on the water and didn't noticed any leaks. I went back in a hour and notice that the sink cabinet was completely drenched in water. I took it out and replace it with a know brand. Luckily I caught the water leak before any real damage took place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comedy of Errors The unit does it's job for the lowest price, so to me , that best. After I bought lots of fittings for the copper pipe, I discovered that had tubing to deal with. So I return some fittings and get flare nuts and flare fittings, turn water off and drain and cut the tubetube only to discover the 1/2 incn flare nuts would not fit on 1/2 inch copper tube. You need 5/8 nuts which the hardware store didn't sell . Ended up with shark bites (fittings). This is all mentioned to save the next people time and gas. Also learned need thread tape going into plastic. ( lost instructions). I would get this filter again when needed, but would get the correct inlet outlet sizes next time to save on extra fittings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glacier Bay filter housings I bought 2 of these to replace 2 old GE FILTER HOUSINGS, after a lot time checking the new ones that are made now the Glacier Bay is by far the best quality for about the same price.. I plumb the 2 of these inline so all the water is filtered before entering my home. I change cartridges every 3 months,they do a good job cleaning up well water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just Installed...CHECK FOR LEAKS! I went shopping at HD today, which I find greatly inferior to Lowes, for anow inline water filter system to go system to go under my sink. The store itself had very few options. I settled on this filter system from Glacier Bay. This product only comes with the filter housing, mounting bracket, and filter wrench. It does not come with a filter, water line, plumbing tape, rubber washer, or couplings for the water line. I spent over an hour walking up and down the aisles at Home Depot trying to find the parts necessary to complete this install. My main issue with Home Depot is that you can never find help to find any product and today was no different. Their organization on their shelves is horrendous as well. After about an hour, a Home Depot employee came to my Aid and helped me find what I was looking for. I did not want a filter type that used push-in water line holders because I have heard too many horror stories of those things blowing out and leaking. What I like about this filter system is that you can buy whatever type of couplings that you want. I wanted brass screw on type, and that is what I got because I know they are secure. I needed a 3/4 to 3/8 compression adapter due to the filter housing's female size is 3/4". Many people on here claimed their filer housing leaked so I listened to those reviews and also got disk type rubber washers for the inlet and outlet ports of the filter housing to use in conjunction with plumbing tape. I installed my filter using 4 wraps of plumping tape around all screw connections just as the directions says. I also using rubber washers in the female inlet and outlet ports. Upon hooking it up and turning my water on, my inlet port started leaking. I found a second disk type washer in my garage and installed a second rubber washer in the inlet side of the filter housing to insure the compression coupling bottoms out into the washer. That did the trick and the leak stopped. I am super paranoid about it and placed a gallon jug underneath my filter as a safeguarday to catch any leaks. I intend to check it religiously for the next few weeks to insure the seal holds. The water tastes great using the standard HD carbon type chlorine filters. I got two of those filters for around $12. My fingers are crossed. The compression adapter I bought that worked great is LFA-125, which is brass.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It can be installed without leaking An obvious design flaw that can be easily corrected. After 3 trips to the store and reading all the reviews, I came up with a solution that seems to allow the"leak free" installation without excessive and questionable use of sealant tape. The problem can be solved by inserting gaskets in the inlet and outlet holes to allow the fitting to "bottom-out" on the washers and seal. So Far, So good.
