FR1/KW1 From Wal Mart?

Anyone know if this is in fact a replacement filter that will work?

those 10 inch universal filters are all the same size... the only difference is the filter material... I am sure it will fit... same thing for filters found at HD or Lowes...

From the description it sounds like it should work, from the pictures, not so sure. Personally I prefer the original manufacturers filters. I have found the best price from these folks. Fast shipping and excellent customer service.

Mine uses a KW1 filter cartridge and it doesn't look like the one in the Walmart ad you referenced. My cartridge has a raised protrusion at the top, smaller diameter than the cartridge, with an O-ring that seats up inside the housing.

Taking another look, the Walmart cartridge looks like the CC1 filter my old 2008 Shamrock 183 had. That has a differently designed housing.

If you are smart you will bypass the FR1 Water Pur and never use it again. Ours exploded 3 nights ago. They are ticking time bombs!! Very crappy product!!

And if you do a search in the forums on this topic, you will see that many of us have bypassed it and use an outside filter now. No shortage of stories of people that have had them pop off and cause some flooding.

OK I GIVE IN....
i did a repair on my PEX line to the FR1 filter a couple of months ago. i had a thread here. i have not been able to put in the "filter door" screws as i can't sleep at night camping without checking it a couple of times.

so what i want to do is put some quick connects
at the outside water supply inlet.

i have the investment of a new KW1 filter plus an additional one. so i want to create a set up for outside. a few fittings and i should be done...

DOES ANYBODY HAVE PICS WHERE THEY HAVE DONE THIS SETUP?
I'D LOVE TO SEE THEM FOR IDEAS.
