My Water Pur simply fell off one summer afternoon. Clean break all the way around towards the top, but not on the threads. Luckily we were there. I now make a habit of shutting the water off at the spigot when we leave for the day.

After winterizing, blowing out lines, then anti-freeze we just leave the filter off until we de-winterize. A little water in threads and cold will crack the filter in a heart beat. Bottom line, if not using the unit in winter, just leave the filter off. That filter is not available at lowes or HD, only can be purchased from water pur or from FR, or maybe a RV dealer.

I've read many of a person whose filter just unscrewed itself right off its mounts... Some have even watched it turn itself off!

I have also started to shut off our water when we leave for the day to avoid a flood. We installed a HD / Lowes filter so we can get the filter anywhere on the road if I need a filter or the whole housing.
