We purchased a new water filter from PUR. Phone 330-547-4423. We just tried to replace the water filter and now water leaks out of the canister when we turn the public water back on. We can't figure out why. We even tried putting the old filter back in the canister, same problem. Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions? We are new full-timers. We have the correct filter.

Thanks for the suggestion, Radio. We thought the same thing. The Georgetown did not come with a gasket for the water filter canister. It's worked fine for 3 months. No leaks. Does anybody else have a Georgetown and is there a gasket for your water filter canister? Thanks!
Those filters have an o-ring in the housing. sometimes they get nicked or come out of the groove and get pinched. There also could be a bit of debris preventing it from sealing. Take the housing apart and inspect the o-ring and groove and clean and replace if needed. I use a small amount of cooking oil on the tip of my finger to lube the o-ring before I put the canister back together.
