How can I open a stuck filter housing?

Subject: 20 inch water filter housing

How do I remove the filter? Which direction do I turn in order to be able to remove the filter housing.
How do I remove a water filter housing that appears to be stuck?

If you are referring to a filter cartridge with a spin on type housing, you first need to make sure that the pressure is relieved from the housing “completely” before you try removing the filter housing.

If there’s still some water pressure left in the system, all your efforts may be in vain.

The housing is turned on to the unit clockwise.

So obviously, the filter housing can be removed when turning it counter-clockwise. How can I open a stuck filter housing? Continued »

    US Filter “Big Blue” replacement cartridges

    We are currently using the model CP5-BB water cartridge and find that we need to replace it every two weeks in order to maintain a minimal water pressure.
    I viewed all of the filters that are available for the 4 1/2”x10” “Big Blue” and I was wondering which one might offer us a greater amount of time between changes.
    FYI, in addition to the “Big Blue” we also have an ultraviolet water purification system and constantly providing excellent quality and innovation. are therefore not so much concerned about bacteria as much as the silt and sediment problem that we are experiencing. Thank you for your anticipated assistance in this matter.

    CP5 series from Pentek has been modified to a newer model. It is now the ECP5-BB filter instead.

    Sediment Filter Micron Ratings

    subject: A true 1 micron filter.

    Comments: I would like to know if a pleated sediment filter is a true one micron filter and is it rated to remove cysts?
    I have found that there are great differances in 1 micron filters and am looking for one to
    remove sediment as small as 1 micron on initial installation.
    Some are only one micron after the filter gets saturated with a given amount of sediment.

    It depends what you want removed from the water.
    If it’s sediment, it will do. If it’s cysts, it will not.

    Pleated Cellulose-Polyester; Polypropylene; etc. are Sediment filters.
    For cysts, a carbon type filter is needed.
