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.
Great filter, good price

I previously purchased a Culligan whole house filter for a rental unit, and although there was nothing wrong with it, the Watts unit is superior. The threaded fittings have metal inserts for strength, the filter has a bypass mode, as well as “off”, and the general level of quality appears superior to the Culligan.
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.
Well built and compatible with multiple filters

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..
Strongly recommend getting "Culligan UB-1 Mounting Bracket with Screws"

We have had this water filter now for 3 months and changing the filter couldn’t be easier. One thing I would recommend is turning the bypass valve a few times before you install it. Our valve was hard to turn at first but after playing with it, turning it back and forth, it made it much easier to use once it was installed. The system uses any common filter that you can find at lowes or home depot, so you can find a better micron count than the filters that are provided if need be.

I installed this filter alongside a water softener in the hopes of helping the resin last longer.
Has been a great solution for my cruddy well water…

My new house has really bad water. Sediment and iron makes the water orange, stains everything and sediment builds up in my water heater and toilet tanks. I tried a DIY solution before dropping $2-3K on a professional system. I started with this filter to catch sediment and then feed a Whirlpool Central Water Filtration System (WHEJL1). (buy at Lowes..$279). Between the two of them, we now have clear, clean water. Installation was straightforward, although I had slow leaks from both SharkBite 3/4″ to male pipe thread adapters. I re-did them several times until finally I wrapped 6 layers of Teflon tape around the threads and the leaks finally stopped. I used the Culligan UB-1 wall mount which works well. I’m using 1 micron filter cartridges which are too fine for my application. The first filter lasted 2 weeks and I now wind up cleaning the layer of orange slime off it every 4-5 days. I will try 5 micron and larger filters when these run out. Filter changes are quick and easy, especially with the valve set to “off” which minimizes water spillage. Speaking of the top valve, I appreciate having it. A quick turn to “bypass” lets me verify that the filter is clogged.
