Re: Jammed Whole House Water Filter Housing
Had the same problem with my Grandma's water filter. Yes, I was relieving the pressure. I ended up using faucet grease on the threads and o-ring; that helped quite a bit. I find that even still it doesn't come off easily; but rather than trying to force it off, I use even, steady pressure and it eventually comes loose.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
