Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jrb Good economical filter
I got this filter not because of any water issue I was having, our rural water system provides excellent water that comes from a very deep well. However, the water system is old, and occasionally i will get some sand or sediment that causes issues with faucet aerators and commode flush valves. So far this filter has done well in catching the sand and sediment. Installation was pretty straight forward, I removed a section of the incoming waterline and using the proper fittings, the filter went in very quickly. The filter appears well made, the body is heavy plastic, and the filter canister is sealed with an o-ring. The threads that hold the canister on are very coarse, which in my experience case less cross threading issues than finer threads. The filter does NOT come with a filter cartridge. I didn't read the fine print and had to return to HD and get a cartridge. Also, there are different cartridges available, depending on you r filtering needs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dock789 good enough house water filter
I had a Dupont whole house water filter with my old softner. When I put in the new softner I decided I didnt need a filter. Wrong, my wife says the water tastes different. So I back to the closest hardware store that I always go to and get another Dupont system. This Dupont has a valve in the head setup. After 3 days it was leaking out the top of the unit. So I get another Dupont, and it leaked out the top after one day. So I had enough of that. Went to Home Depot and bought this Glacier basic system. I dont need a clear view bottm, and I dont need a shutoff valve in the head to change the filter. The onlyl place it can leak is at the two connections. Its been a week now and no problems. What you have to do with these plastic products is wrap teflon tape about 5 times on what your using to screw into here, and then add a bit of sealing paste. The use of both will make for a leak free seal.

The Basic Household Water Filtration System is just that basic. The installation of this system is above the DIY'er with little plumbing experience, instructions that come with the system are a little hard to follow if you do not have basic knowledge in plumbing. The design is very good because it will fit in tight spots with the universal mounting bracket. The over all quality of the system is one that if it is not abused it will last along time, just remember to change the filter and keep the O-ring lubricated.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dundee Household Water Filtration to remove sediment
In order to install this household filtration system, you will need two 3/4" NPT adaptors (not included) to adapt to the existing cold water supply pipe. Several inches of cold water pipe will need to be removed prior to installing. You need 2" clearance below the installed unit to allow for changing the filter. The unit can withstand 125 PSI water pressure. There is a mounting bracket that you put onto the filter head before connecting it to the plumbing. In order to change the filter, you turn the canister to the left to drop down the canister which will be filled with water. A hard plastic wrench is included for this task. You will have to shut off the cold water supply to the unit as there isn't a shutoff valve on the unit. The warranty is for one year to be leak and drip free.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JoeFromOH Good basic filter
This seems to be a good basic whole house filter. It installed pretty easily. I had to wrap the seals with teflon tape pretty good to get a waterproof seal but have no problems. It uses standard sized replacement filters so there should never be problem getting new ones. I have city water and it's not really bad so I don't notice a significant improvement but it makes me feel better having that extra filtration.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spring Very solid product!
As a plumbing professional I have to say you can not go wrong with this filter houseing, why pay much more for a filter housing when they all take a universal filter size. This thing is well made and very strong. Tolerances are very tight and you will have little to no bleed by while this filter is I operation. This is perfect for the normal 2 and a half bath home.

After four tries to get the inlet side to stop leaking I am taking it back. In my last attempt I wrapped the brass fitting 10 times around with the heavy teflon tape and put plumbers putty on the threads of the filter head and it still leaked. Buy something better.
