Purchased a good pressure washer so figured I would purchase the water filter as insurance. Actually have found in my area, the water is quite clean so not necessary but was inexpensive insurance.

Many people on here say that it leaks from the female connector, I had that problem however I soon discovered it wasn't the connector in fact it was my male hose that was the problem. If it leaks check that the male connector isn't old or worn out. I was using an old male house and I swapped it out and what do you know it doesn't leak at all.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DrGary Spewed water no matter how I tried to snug it down
I bought this to pre-filter water going to my pressure washer. It spewed water at the faucet end no matter how I tried to snug it up. I think it may have had a crack in the black plastic housing, or just a sloppy fit between the brass(?) and plastic parts. Returned next day, after my clothes had dried out. It's a good idea, just too cheaply made.

Brass hose connections are nice. A finer or secondary screen would be better to trap smaller particles, but otherwise it seems to work mediocre

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KansasGardener Just what I was looking for!
I'm using this filter on a 275 gallon rain tank. I hooked it up to the outflow spigot. My water nozzle was getting plugged with debris. This works great for my garden hose.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hughmanoid Pre-filtering rainwater at low pressure (<9 psi)
Downstream from a 1/4 hp sump pump pumping roof and driveway runoff up to 9 psi.
Using to protect a digital flow meter from clogging from debris such as pine needles and grit.
40 mesh is about 375 microns and should catch pebbles and coarse sand.
After reading other less than stellar reviews:
I wouldn't use this unattended and permanently attached to city water pressure (washing machine, etc...) such as up to 80 psi in the event of unforeseen surprises like earthquakes.
I can't understand who would expect it to filter silt,calcium, rust, or other dissolved solids.
I would use teflon tape and plumbers grease (not vaseline) on the clear bowl to FINALLY seal it ,
Clean it by removing the hose ends and blow or backflush the gunk out rather than disturbing the bowl.

I've had 3 of these now and on every one of them the filter canister broke-out at the bottom. They were installed on the water inlet of my pressure washer and only lasted any where from 1 - 2 months each. HD readily exchanged each faulty unit for a new one, but 3 strikes and you're out! I will not give it another chance.
