I would need to unscrew and dump either way. Only way to get AF in my filter would be suck it through the tank.. Not gonna do that. AF fill it down stream from the filter, but I do not have a sunseeker.

Just curious, how tight did you tighten canister when you winterized.

I have had a couple of these crack and bought replacements from lowes. Now I just unscrew it and leave it off.

No need to pull A/F from Tank,no need to put A/F in tank. A/F must be Pumped through the Pump for pump Freeze protection,this must be preformed on the Suction side of the Pump,otherwise not All the Chambers will be free of Water! Youroo!! And drain the little Pre Filter!

Read about them cracking on this site and have always removed the canister and place in a drawer after winterizing is complete.

I should bypass it because we don't use it. We never drink water from the freshwater tank.

We save our melted Ice water,,, run it thru a PUR water canister,,, and use it for cooking & coffee,,, we have done that for years because we used to camp on our own land,,, where there was no water available,,, we also @ that time used it to make more Ice,,, because it took over a hour to go to a store and back !!!
Waste Not,,, Want Not !!!

The Factory filter also "Filters" all water from City Inlet,you might want to rethink Removing the Filter as it keeps "Things" out of faucets,toilet valves,ect. Youroo!!

If we ever have to add water,,, we carry a filter to hook to the hose outside,,, I always filter all water before it enters the MH... nothing wrong with double filtered water !!!

Are these canisters breaking only during freezing months? I understand the bypass mod, but I guess my question is are they breaking under normal use on city water?
