Actually, the link includes responses from FRF. Although it's much easier to just use the built-in search function at the top of the page. This is a pretty common question/problem.

You'll not have any issues with this filter and housing as long as you use it correctly.

X2 with TURBS response. I have heard a lot of complaining about this filter system. I will agree it is different from the waterpur in our 09 Cardinal but I am just careful removing and tighten.

If done right water filter canister should screw off by hand or very little effort from the wrench

Thanks for the question and helpful replies.

This is the easiest way to provide all the links to water filter questions and good answers on the FRF.

The plumbing tape would prevent proper tightness. The O ring will seal just fine.

Agreed. No need to use plumbers tape. Plastic to plastic- no tape.

The sealing is done by the o-ring, try cleaning the mating surfaces for the o-ring and apply a light coat of fauset grease to the o-ring

Mine works great had it for 3 years. The key is not to over tighten, and do not us the wrench to tighten. Hand tight to snug only.
