The KW1 is propitiatory to the FR1 housing.
The KW1 elements are expensive and there have been many posts that for the price of the elements, people have replaced the entire filter assembly with something that uses much less expensive and more widely available components.

Get something similar to this, cheap and it uses standard 10 inch filters less than $7 each. My GT came with this type.

As bubbles mentions....and they are readily available from Menards, Lowes, Home Depot, as well as Amazon, and they all carry a choice of filter inserts to go with them, plus they don't have the history of leaks like the proprietary ones!!

Hello Bubbles,

Do you have the model number of the filter housing that you used/direct replacement of the original housing? Does this housing come in a 1/2" or 3/4" pipe thread?

My 2012 GT came with this (similar) type and not the KW1 filter type. I'm not sure of thread but if you can pull yours take it to HD/Lowes etc..
