    Q:WHICH POSITION SHOULD THE VALVE BE IN....WHEN I PUT IT INLINE, THE PRESSURE DROPS TO ZERO
    by|Mar 23, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  To direct the water flow through the filter, the control handle should be turned to the right. We recommend you review the diagram on pg. 2 of the Installation Instructions: https://images.thdstatic.com/catalog/pdfImages/89/89b77610-4c5d-4853-9853-0046029a19b7.pdf. If your water pressure is not correct, please consult with a local plumber or your water company.

            Zip, zero, zilch smell of chlorine or chorlamine. Filter color after 22 days after install. This is what city water pumps into your casa. Hope this abates the loss or resin in the water softener.

              Good to Go
              In the past, I have noticed a strong chlorine smell at times at my household faucets. I wasn't sure about any sediment or rust problems with the city water that I am on though. When learning that over-chlorinated water can cause resin failure in water softeners, that hastened this purchase. And yes I have softener problems. If you have read carefully, you will know that filters are not included with this product. I spent sub two hundred dollars on this and the rest of the components that I needed. As my house is ran in PEX, I already had the tools and some of the fittings, and only needed some shut-offs, 90s, crimp rings, and 1" brass fittings. That price included two of the FXHTC filters by the way. The product is solid and appears to be well built. It is larger than I remembered when I pulled it out at the store to inspect it. At home, the installation is straightforward. Screw the mounting plate to the head unit. I mounted mine to a lateral joist across from my main 3/4 line after the pressure reducer. I wanted the ability to bypass this unit (even though this has a built-in bypass) in case the system and or bypass fails. I was up and running in just over an hour taking my time. Within days the filter started to change color and a few particulates are visible. The water tastes and smells better and we will see how that goes over time. This has been installed for just under two weeks. I adjusted my regulator up a skosh and have not yet noticed a decrease in water pressure at all when checking against a gauge on an outside spigot. I am pleased and would recommend this product.

                High-end (expensive) whole house water filtration system - need a few months to see if the value is there
                Installation was pretty straight forward, instructions were adequate, except for the filter installation part. One of the "push-on" type fittings did not seal the first time and had to be removed and reinserted. Installed in conjunction with a water softener and additional fittings had to be purchased. SmartHQ (IOS) application is a little janky. Frequently hangs and or displays "loading" and needs to be shut down and restarted.

                  This housing is SO MUCH BETTER than the housing of another popular brand it replaced. Here are just a few of the features I like that you don't find on other units: -Bypass/off valve: This saves you from having to install a bypass loop -Clear housing so you can see how dirty your filter is -Clear housing so you can see how well your filter fits as your installing it -An O-Ring that fits -Hand-tightens with no leaks It also has some electronic thing with a battery. I haven't messed with that yet, but it's probably cool too.

                  No drop in water pressure.
                  Installed with pex. One concerned i had was the water pressure. The water pressure stayed the same. I have 3/4 main (pex) had to use a reducer 1 to 3/4. I have water from city. After installing the water filter and turning on the water, i was able to see some rust particles, probably pipes. Water filter has a shut off valve, but i went ahead and installed and extra one before filter for extra safety.

                    Took a plumber awhile to hook it up but I can tell the water is much more clear. If you decide to flush your hot water heater drain it all then fill it up maybe 1/4 ro 1/3 full then drain it again. I had discolored water for awhile and think a second partial flush would have prevented that.

                    This unit was easy to install everything fit all the parts were there no leaks working as expected. Filter element can be viewed through the clear glass bowl so we have a visual indication of when it needs to be changed and what's in our water.
