I recommend that no one buy this filter, in fact anything from Culligan. The quality of this product has changed in recent years such that it should be banned from the market. The problem is that the polymer endcaps fail in what is called "punching shear". I have used this make and model of filter for 10 years without a single problem until this past year. I purchased a few year's supply of filters at once (as I normally do) in 2010 and noticed the endcaps were of a softer material than in the past, but I didn't think much of this since these endcaps also serve as the gaskets. However, upon removal of this filter after using it for a few months (my typical use) I discovered the filter medium and endcaps had collapsed (not disintegrated) like an accordion, while the center core remained straight and at its original length. Closer inspection revealed the endcap had failed in a ring around the point of contact with the filter housing. This is the location where a separate gasket would be on top of the filter. Unfortunately, this did not turn out to be a one-time occurrence. The exact same failure has happened with three subsequent filters, even though I cut the use period in half. Clearly, this whole batch of filters is defective.

I have been in contact with the manufacturer (Culligan) over the past few months, and after some limited success at getting them to respond (which was a struggle I might add), they have eventually stopped replying to my emails. This is very poor for public relations. At first, I got several excuses as to why this was not their problem, the most interesting being their claim that the filters I bought were not made by Culligan because they were not purchased directly from Culligan. I informed them that I purchased them from Amazon.

UPDATE: I have switched to the Culligan blue filter, Culligan R50-BBSA Level 1 50 Micron Heavy Duty Sediment Replacement Cartridge, because these started falling apart and getting mushy.

Nice filter. I was having problems with the blue top filters not working at all, I determined they were a few millimeters too short, allowing the water to bypass the media all together. These have more rubber at the ends and I'm getting a better seal, capturing much more rust. Plus, they are cheaper than Home Depot and fit my GE housing.

I echo the other reviewer about replacing this regularly. My filter disolved into a lump of sludge. Hope it doesn't plug up the rest of my plumbing. I've used Pentek filters for years with no issues, but these filters just broke down and washed away. Literally a pile of paper and two rubber end caps floating around in the housing.

I can't say I noticed much difference in my water after replacing the 50 micron filter with this one because I don't have a big problem with sediment. But I am pleased that the flow rate in the house doesn't seem any different. It's been installed about 2 months now. I expect it won't last as long as the 50 version but if my water is cleaner then it's worth it.

UPDATE Sept. 17, 2010

I learned something the hard way -- CHANGE THE FILTER REGULARLY! I was waiting for the flow rate to go down as a sign to change this filter but it never decreased. Then a month or two ago I noticed the water starting to smell and it really got pretty bad. I'm on a well so wasn't sure if it was the ground water changing but then thought of the filter. Oh my gosh, it was gross. Black & slimy & stinky and the paper had torn so the water was flowing right through with no filtering, hence no pressure loss.

This was about 6 months use on a well (no chlorine) which was way way too long at it turned out. I'd say the filter should be changed every 2 months.

Multiple water main breaks and living in a trailer has resulted in my having to use the Culligan heavy duty filter. With this filter I don't have to remove the faucet strainers. It does the job simply and easily. I even travel the U.S and Canada with the canister attached to my hoses.

I'm pretty happy with these filters they work great. I set them up as a "subscribe & save" so every 3 months I get one in the mail automatically that way I never have to remember when to replace it. In the summer when I run the sprinklers and fill up the pool I switch it to bi-monthly.

Our water here in the SW suburbs of Chicago is very hard the filter seems to take quite a bit of it out. The advantages that we can see are less mineral deposits in the dishwasher.

I have also noticed that the filters in our RO water system came out allot cleaner this last time so maybe I'll experiment with letting them go a little longer.

1 YEAR UPDATE

so I've been using them for almost a year. And I must say i'm still very happy with their performance. The subscribe and save price has gone up by a dollar and change but doesn't bother me enough to find a different filter.

I have had NO instances of my unit falling apart, tearing or disolving so these other folks must just have terrible water or be leaving them in WAY too long!

Drained my water heater about two months ago and not too much sediment came out unlike in past years so they are definitly helping. (when I replace the filter its completely covered in rust deposits and I mean COMPLETELY covered. Its amazing what this thing is catching!)

I'm keeping the 5 stars they are pretty cheap and work well so all in all I think its a pretty good value.
