Great Filter – Easy to Install – Easy Maintenance

I have now purchased two of these filters: one for my home and one for my business. The installation takes about 30 minutes and buying the Culligan UB-1 bracket is almost essential. Thank you to the reviewers who provided that information. The housing for the filter is clear, so you can always see the condition of the filter. I have experimented with 50, 20, and 10 micron filters. The 20 micron seems to be best for my water issues at home. I keep a post-it next to the filter and mark down when I change it and which one I used. Just remember the lower the number, the finer the filtration, and the more frequently you will need to change the filter. The filters are very inexpensive and you can set them up in Amazon’s Subscribe and Save to make your life easy and save money.
It’s made sturdy and has metal threaded inserts 3/4 npt

I have been using this for a year now, and have changed filter element 20 times with no problems. It’s made sturdy and has metal threaded inserts 3/4 npt . In bypass mode water flows strait thru the upper housing so it don’t come in contact with sediment from a plugged filter. I use Purenex 5 Micron 10-Inch by 2.5-Inch Sediment Filter Cartridges. I have included pics before and after filter change. When changing filter I just place new filter cartridge in the clear lower part and slowly tighten so the filter don’t get off center. I only tighten it by hand , If you tighten to much it’s harder to get it loose next filter change. I have never had any leaks so far I’m running 80psi on the water line.We sometime have all three showers and washing machine going at the same time, cant tell any difference in pressure drop on a new cartridge and only about 5 psi drop across filter when it gets dirty like in the pic with all the showers and washer filling up. I have pressure gages before and after filter. great product ,bought it here on amazon. package did not say what country it was made in.The pic shows the size of the ports in the inner valve just a little smaller than a dime.
Strongly recommend getting "Culligan UB-1 Mounting Bracket with Screws"

I recently installed 4 of these in a row to clear up the smell in my water. The first filter is a 50 micron, followed by a 20 micron, then a 5 micron, and lastly a carbon filter. This setup has successfully removed the taste and smell from my water. It took about a week for the filters to start getting any kind of color to them, but I am glad to see that the sediment is not in my drinking water or going to be clogging up my washing machine inlet filter, staining toilets, etc..
Decent Product, Easy Installation

Fortunately we have a pump house which made this easier to install than some others may face (i.e. it wasn’t in tight quarters and it’s outside, so I wasn’t concerned with leaks when I first pressurized it). I bought two housings and installed them in line with each other in hopes I wouldn’t have to change filters so often. It came with three filters, although after a week I replaced them with a 10 micron filter and 5 micron filter (respectively) . Seems decent quality, easy installation for weekend DIY’r with some minor plumbing experience. Some tips for installation:

I’m a plumber and have installed nemerous filters that generally much more expensive and harder to install than this filter is. This filter can be installed in literally minutes if you know what your doing and if not the directions are pretty straight forward.
Great Product…..Great Price….

One of the best whole house filter systems I have come across, especially for the price. I recommend and install these for customers who have problems with sediment in their water supply lines (which can lead to all sorts of problems). My favorite aspects are…..
