I use silicone grease that you can pickup in the plumbing department of any home center on my whole house filter O-ring each time I replace it. It doesn't damage the rubber and is what it was designed for. I also use it for the O-rings in my sprinkler system compression fittings when I reinstall the backflow preventer each spring.

I have done the same when changing the water filter. I also do not put antifreeze in the filter housing no more. (W@(M@^T Brand) messed up my
filter housing. One on the left is new, one on the right is the one that the antifreeze messed up. I installed a By Pass Kit on out filter system. Quick Turn By-Pass Kit - Camco 35983 - Winterizing - Camping World
