Capping/Blanking Off Water Filter Housing

Instead of changing the plumbing in order to eliminate the inside water filter has anyone found a cap (probably around 4") to just screw onto the male fitting of the water filter canister top? Mine is a Model CCI-10-CLW.

Hey turbo, Will the block off plate you mentioned block off (thread on) the white filter housing? If so, where have you seen this item? I can't find one. Thanks

Thanks for the info! I'm still wondering if I can purchase a pvc threaded cap to screw onto the filter housing. I'll check at a hardware store. If not, I may try the bypass plate

???

If you don't want to use the water filter, why not just leave the filter element out and screw the housing back on.

My understanding is that after I winterize I should remove the glass filter housing (also recommended by the filter housing manufacturer) and store dry. The reason being that if any moisture remains in the threads the housing will crack during freezing temperatures. Of course if there is no moisture in the threads then you will not have a problem but Murphy's Law follows me. So my goal is to not have to deal with the inside filter set up at all. I know I can have the system redone but I was looking for a more simpler method.
