Here is how I bypassed mine. I used a sharkbite with 1/2 pipe male on the inlet pex, a 1/2 pipe coupler and just left the 1/2 pipe male on the other pex line that screwed into the filter housing outlet.

Just put the kw1 filter in. Was fine at home. After we got here and setup the dw, 2dd, the dog and I took a walk around the cg. About 30 minutes. Came back to water pouring out from under the door. Filter cartridge fell out.

Sorry dude that stinks and I feel your pain, hope you were able to dry that all up and have no damage

I did pretty much the same as Hamster did except I used the crimp clamps like they already use on the pex pipe. I also left the bracket for the cannister in case I ever want to sell the unit and want to put it back the way it was.

So I removed the filter thinking it may be causing the canister to not tighten down. Died out overnight. Humidity still very low up here in ct. Went out for the day (but didn't turn the water of) cave back. No issues. So it must have been me. I told dw. Let me try putting the filter back in. Opened the compartment door and the canister had loosened a quarter turn. Didn't put the filter in. Tightened and started dinner. The dw heard water running. Tan to the back. Canister had loosened but this time it was nearly off. Water pouring out of the sub floor again.

I removed mine for fear of this happening. Enough folks on here have posted similar stories to yours to convince me. Just curious - when tightening it, did you feel the "pops" of the teeth in the housing engaging? I know that it isn't tight unless those teeth click in. Some folks have tightened it and then left the wrench attached in a position where the housing can't rotate and loosen up. Just a thought...

Hmm. It has a click when it feels seated. I think I'll try the wrench idea. But will use some red green tape to make sure the wrench doesn't fall of.

Your should hear several clicks as it further tightens. I also noticed before I removed mine, that I was able to tighten it a little more if I was hooked up to city water and the system was pressurized.

I replaced mine with a standard canister that uses an o-ring to seal the canister. Plus you can use regular filters available every where.

No clicks. The label on the canister is exactly where it was when I started. Not going to do anything while camping that would cause the housing to crack (since that is writtn about these filters in this forum). Would not want to spend my day running back and forth to the hardware store. Our next tip isn't until July 4th so I will have plenty enough time to figure out whether to warrantee or mod.

Maybe clicks wasn't the best term. Sorry about that. There really isn't a sound but as you tighten the canister it will start to get snug and then you should feel some clicks or bumps as the teeth engage when you tighten it up further.
