Why can't we open our system to change filter, so dirty we had to turn it off. Not turning at all,locked

Asked by LL October 18, 2018

Answers

I struggled with the cover for hours when it was new. I then reread the instructions, looked up some feedback on the internet, followed the instructions and advise, and was successful. The easiest process I've found is this: Turn filter handle to off or bypass, turn off water to the house, open a cold water faucet nearest the filter and let water drain, press and hold the bleeder valve (red button-ish thing) until all pressure is gone and only a dribble of water ///THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP. THE FILTER COVER IS NEARLY UNMOVABLE IF YOU DO NOT BLEED THE PRESSURE., using a filter cover wrench unscrew the cover, change the filter, thread the cover back on by hand (careful to not cross thread and/or catch the rubber ring), snug the cover using the filter cover wrench, crack open the water watch for leaking or spraying from the cover threads and/or bleeder valve (close off water and recheck cover is seated and rubber ring is in place and not damaged), crack open the water, open fully when no leaking, allow filter to fill and run a little, hold bleeder valve until only water (no more air) comes out, reset timer, and run cold water from the closest faucet until any residue and/or air is passed. That should just about do it.

Does it remove calcium and is it ok for copper piping

This filter remove debris only. You need water softener to remove calcium. You will need adaptors to connect between this and copper piping too.

Can it be mounted vertically....?

Asked by MrC December 1, 2019
5
Answers

Hi MrC - This models is for vertical installation only. Horizontal installation is not recommended because the water is going to dump out of the unit when loosening the sump. See Installation Guide at the following link: https://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-50220-4.pdf - Thanks for your interest! Sue

will this get iron and the iron taste out?

Asked by zach March 30, 2020
5
Answers

Hi Zach - FXHSC reduces sediment, sand and rust. FXHTC reduces chlorine taste and odor, sediment, sand and rust. To treat an iron problem other than moderate amounts of "clear water" iron, consult a local water dealer or distributor. A water softener such as GE SmartWater system softeners will remove moderate amounts of ferrous (clear water) iron. Resin bed cleaners, such as Super Iron Out by Summit Brands, should be used periodically. Keep in touch at 1-800-952-5039. Sue

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.

My water was so full of chlorine it was drying out my skin and my hair, I was using so much lotion and hair products just to keep things in order. My skin is back to being soft, no lotion since the install on 8-3-19. My hair texture has changed as well, not using as many products. I would definitely recommend this product.

Filter was easy to install with basic knowledge. It has not hurt water pressure but will as the filter does its job. Its already showing discoloration on the filter after 2 days. We have very poor water. I feel that I should state it is not being used as whole house. Only filtering water into the water heater as it was collecting a lot of dirt? or rust? or algae? Again poor water.

Very large filter unit (I wanted that). Pretty great flow. Only downside is that a new filter was not included in the package with the housing, so it ended up being rather expensive. Plumber had no problem installing it, either.

Housing is junk
Customer review from geappliances.com logo
Had my set up for about 15 months. Upon changing the filter the plastic threads on the filter housing all cracked off. The Retail store where purchased will not except for return because item was used and over 1 year old. Having a lot of difficulty finding a replacement housing. Very disappoint in the quality. Would not recomend to anyone.
