Hello all, my apologies for not getting back faster....not cool.
Black and Dieselguy...no white tool and yes, the torque i would need probably would break something!
Youroo, jtownstumpjumper, tstanger i did not think of that...if i did get it open without letting pressure off, that would have been my weekly bath. That didn't work either.
GrampaJim....that didn't work either. Frisbyh...it looks as if this is what happened with mine so i think i will just go along with Stickaly and do the external filters.
Thank you all
rob

You still have to get the original filter out. Just remove the whole assembly and connect the two lines. I would remove the filter assembly, remove the canister, replace the filter and use Danco silicone paste on the O ring, O ring groove and canister top and replace it. I had the same problem and now, just leave the wrench you didn't get on the canister to insure it doesn't come loose. Has worked now for 3 years. BTW, you can go to a camping store and buy a wrench (take the canister with you).

deartruc, is that a threaded coupling? I assume it is from the FPT on the receipt. Just as an FYI, I would check that connection several times. I did the same thing (used a threaded coupling) when I removed my filter. All seemed well at first. But, in order to get the threaded coupling on, you obviously have to turn the fittings inside the pex tubing. As I said, all seemed fine initially, but after leaving the water on for about 1/2 hour, there was a small, slow leak from the 1/2" fitting connected to the pex. I can only assume from where they turned inside the tubing. I was told they could turn and still be fine. One side was, but the other side had the small leak.
I removed it and connected the two lines with a 1/2" sharkbite coupling. All seems to be well now.

Ya, but, deartruc,,,,when you're standing on your head and trying to bend your bone joints in ways they can't go...thos Sharkbites are well worth it.

I agree. Access on my 23ikss wasn't pleasant either. Now I won't have to fight with that filter in the future. And I can create more storage space.

My post wasn't intended to compare prices. I was simply stating you might want to keep an eye on it. You have to turn the fittings in order to tighten the couplings. Which is what I assumed caused the leak on mine.
Also, if I recall, the 1/2" push lock coupling (Sharkbite) I purchased was about $4, not $8.
