1. What is neither described nor shown in the photo are: a welded tubular steel frame connected to the wall plate which would allow free standing on the floor; a water pressure gauge located between the 1st and 2nd canister starting from the right as you see it; inlet starts from the right and moves to left (reverse mounting plate/frame for L to R); filters are installed. in canisters; pressure release ports are located at top of each canister; and, plastic canister wrench. 2. I installed after a pressure tank which I had added to a city water supply with a loop cutoff for uninterrupted whole house service of filter or tank. 3. I also added a copper strap (1/4" pipe tube) between copper pipes before the filter as a ground. The connections between canisters are copper but not continuous. 4. The only issue I had was at the ports in and out where I had not wound enough PFTE tape around my union, I had 3-4 and it leaked. I removed and made 7-8 turns of PFTE and no leak. 5. I used 1 inch copper sweated in place with no heat near the canisters and connected with unions and added another water pressure gauge about a foot from the end to measure in and out pressures. Pressure drop is negligible between in and out flows. 6. Water was bubbly after install and after repair of ports (about a day for air to be out of system) and tastes better than anything out of a bottle. 7. Minor damage to tubular frame during shipping (unit weighs about 50#) which stiffer packaging on sides would have alleviated.

Great Filter System
We are very happy with the filtration system. Within hours of installation, noticed drinking water to be significantly clearer & better tasting. We have suffered with iron bacteria in our water for a long time. This system has changed that immediately.

    It leaks from the fittings. In the middle of the unit. Manufacturer suggests I disassemble it and tighten it up. If any parts are cracked or broken they will replace them. Quite a bit of work. The unit will need to be removed from the water system first. Then taken apart. Is this really my responsibility???

      We have a second home with a well and knew we had issues with the water, so we thought we'd try to see if we can get some of the sediment out. The Anchor 3 stage was incredible. The difference was more than we expected. We've only had it for a few weeks so we will see how it holds out but for right now it nice to see clear water!

        Home Depot is directly responsible for this not being a very negative report. Home Depot stood behind this product and made things right for me. The first set of filters was delivered and then my plumber installed them and discovered that the manifold had a tiny crack in it. If Home Depot had not worked with me to get a replacement I would have been extremely unhappy. As it was I needed to pay my plumber for 2 days rather than one so the cost of installation was excessive - directly because the product was not adequately tested before shipping (the packaging was strong enough that there was no way the manifold, which is supported by the steel framework, could have cracked in transit) The filters are good but Home Depot Customer Service is excellent

        Installed and about two weeks later a small drip has appeared on the inlet fitting of the third stage. It is installed under our craw space, and although it is a drip about every 10 seconds (now). I will monitor it to see if the condition gets worse. I have installed it with a by-pass and can disconnect and remove the unit.
