Solved-Problem removing filter canister on WaterPur CCI-10-CLW

Hello,
I am trying to replace the filter on the WaterPur filter in our Rockwood tt. The canister will not loosen up from the housing. I have all water off and opened the faucets. Is there a preasure release button or something I am missing?
Thanks for your help.

Do you have the wrench that is supposed to be supplied with the filter canister?

You are way ahead of the game already,if you found where they (F/R) hid the thing. Find & use the circular wrench for that cannister, Remember,(Lefty-Loosey)! Youroo!!

Think about which way to turn the wrench. If you are looking down on the canister, you need to turn the wrench clockwise instead of the normal counter-clockwise. The normal "lefty loosey, righty tighty" is still the rule, but only if you are looking at the filter canister from the bottom. If you are looking the canister from the top, then you have go backwards.

You CAN NOT remove the filter with ANY pressure on the system.

OPEN a low point drain or faucet and that canister should spin off BY HAND.
The wrench will only be needed if King Kong installed the filter.

I had that problem plus the mess I made taking it off. Laying on floor to worked on sucked not getting it back on right so it leaked and I had to do it again.
I them remove filter system at the rally last week. I go back to the outside inline filter.

When I take mine off, I always smear the sealing surfaces with Danco Waterproof grease (Shop Danco Waterproof Grease at Lowes.com). Makes it easy to remove the next time.
