Cleaned up put it back on wacth it start to unscrew itself when water came back on re tightened held for 5 min and did it again ! Removed filter and used a spare shower hose to patch it till home depot opens to get 1/2 coupling. Now another thing for the dealer to fix !!!!

No need for dealer; just get a threaded coupling and remove the filter housing.

Going to do that but I paid extra for the whole house filter so dealer will have to fix it with a new one !

If it is a FR1 Canister that takes the KW1 filter, someone probably over tightened it 1 time, or tightened it without a filter in it and broke the locking tabs off of the canister. After this the canister will unscrew itself.

X2 on the coupler. Yup, paid $70 for the filter that now sits on my garage floor. I also think it was factory over tightened. Was a bear to unscrew but now it does it on its own.

I want to either relocate mine or remove it and use it outside. The factory installed it in a very awkward place to access. I want to drain the water from the filter housing between trips so the water doesn’t go stale and it's a PIA to work with where it is now. Mounting it outside would avoid spilling water all over the floor when removing the canister to empty it.

At least you guys can reach your filter. I have to access mine from the left front hatch, remove the basement wall panel, and looking back in there, can see it past the furnace, past the outside water connections, past the exterior shower assembly...

If I stick my arm in there to the shoulder, I can *just* touch the darn thing. Who thought this was a good design?

It's on my list of things to do this month to remove the exterior shower assembly, reach in there and remove that silly filter system. (There's no filter in it, it's just a bowl of water)

A coupling will require turning one of the Pex fittings which is not good. He needs a Union.

I didn't have to turn a pex fitting when I installed my coupler.

I would have had to turn one of the fittings to remove it anyway. One side was PEX and the other side was a reinforced vinyl stub. I chose to cut the crimp ring on the vinyl stub with a side cutter and use a ring clamp when reinserting it after the coupling was installed.
