From the Manufacturer
Aqua-Pure® Water Filter System AP802 is a whole-house water-filtration solution for larger homes and commercial units. It helps reduce particulate, rust, and the taste and odor of chlorine from cloudy, colored, or musty water. This simple canister filter system uses standard-size filtration cartridges. A built-in pressure relief button makes cartridge changes simple. By helping improve the clarity, taste and odor of tap water, it provides an economical alternative to bottled drinking water. The simple-to-install system handles a heavy load, providing a flow rate of up to 45 gallons (170.3 liters) per minute. The system is covered by a 10-year limited warranty against manufacturing defects.
Manufactured by 3M Purification Inc., formerly CUNO Incorporated, the Aqua-Pure® AP802 Water Filter System is installed at the point-of-entry. The single canister unit is installed with 1-inch NPT inlet and outlet connections. All parts are manufactured from FDA CFR-21 compliant materials. The system provides a flow rate of up to 45 gallons (170.3 liters) per minute and has an operating pressure range of 25-100 psi (172-690 kPa) and operating temperature range of 40-100°F (4.4-37.8°C). It comes with a wrench. A pressure relief button is incorporated into the system for ease in cartridge replacement. 3M recommends regularly scheduled maintenance. Cartridges must be replaced every six months, or sooner if there is a noticeable reduction in flow rate. If water is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality adequate disinfection should be used before or after the water filtration system.
Whole-house water treatment systems are sometimes referred to as point-of-entry (POE) systems, and are installed immediately downstream from the water meter or well pump. A whole-house filter that reduces iron, particulate, and chlorine odor and taste will typically treat all water entering a residence, protecting plumbing and fixtures while reducing unpleasant tastes, colors and odors. A water softener system will often be bypassed by a cold drinking water line that provides salt-free drinking water. Regular maintenance of a whole-house water filter system may be as simple as replacing a filtration cartridge every six months, or may require a service call. The initial expense of a whole-house water filter system often pays off in the long term, as it may protect pipes and fixtures from iron and/or hard water deposits and discoloration and provide savings in bottled water costs.

We knew we didn't want a water softener: we wanted to get the crud out of our water, not add more stuff in. What we wanted was a filter: get the chlorine taste out and the crud out.
We did a lot of research, and considered some of the expensive brands like the LifeSource water filter. But in addition to the cost, none of the independent research I found online indicated that they were anything but hocus pocus. Plus, I think we're talking about $2k or $3k for the filter. After looking into it, it really sounded like marketing hoo-haa with no science behind it, so we dug deeper.
We opted for this one and have been very satisfied.
Ultimately, though, this product is just the filter container that you hook up to the water system. The filter cartridge is a separate product and determines what you will filter out of your water.
This Aqua-Pure system lets you choose between
- particulate-only removal ( Aqua-Pure AP810-2 (AP802-1.5-C) Replacement Cartridge, 5 Micron Rating Water Filter )
- particulate and chlorine removal: Aqua-Pure AP817-2 Water Filter Replacement Cartridge, 25 Micron Rating .
We went with the latter, and it's been great. We have to change the filter cartridge every 6 to 12 months, but at $50/pop, that's acceptable.
The Aqua-Pure system is inexpensive. It was originally made by a company called Cuno which got bought by 3M. We've been very pleased with 3M products in the past, so we had confidence of the brand. And so far, it's been everything we hoped for. The water tastes great, and there's no chlorine smell, and no more clogging up of our faucets.
The filter system is fairly small, so we just had it installed on the side of the house, in a convenient location to swap out filter cartridges. If you live in a cold climate, I would recommend putting it indoors to protect it from the weather. We are in California, so the side of the house is fine.
The real expense is the installation that really needs to be done by a plumber. Depending how much new copper pipe you'll need (based on where you are installing it with respect to your water supply), it could run from a couple of hundred dollars in installation to over a thousand. Still, totally worth it. We are very glad we did it.
Also; small tube of lubricant for the canister threads and 0-ring would be nice. It's almost impossible to install without as canister will bind before threaded all the way in causing leaks and O-ring will break if you try and tighten adequately or break when you try and unscrew. Would be nice if they threw in at least one replacement O-ring too.
It does not come with a filter, which you also have to purchase separately and buy a couple extra O-rings, just in case. No matter what you will need them in the future anyway.
Once installed with lube and a new O-ring, it seems to work fine without leaks.
HOW TO STOP WATER LEAK FROM WATER FILTER
07/23/2014.I wrote this review because in the past when purchasing an item through Amazon I always checked out the reviews and
have found that they have helped me makemy decision in a purchase. On June 30 2014 my posted a review,
Again the only short coming of the filter is that the filter cap does not have "Brass Thread Inserts" built in the cap. The filter
cap is replaceable (part #6889932). Filter cap is made of soft polypropylene,the threads are dip. When you insert a brass fitting
(threads are shallow) as gap will be present between the threads as they are dissimilar material a leak will occur. This only flaw
can be rectified by doing the following and then you will have a great "water filter system" without any leaks.
If you wrap poly tape around the brass threads fitting you will lose grasp and create a round surface and it will not work and consequently will leak.
The best and most practical solution to stop the water from leaking is to use a very inexpensive, non toxic sealant, which is also made of polypropylene and it never dries. Example of brand: You will find this under the following name,"Pipe Thread Sealant T plus 2".
How to apply "Tplus2"
Filter cap - with a finger fill the threads with the Teflon paste evenly.
Brass Fitting - apply Teflon paste evenly filling all the threads.
Inserting the fitting - gently insert the brass fitting in the filter cap until you feel that you have a "grab" connected. Now make sure to give exactly (4) full turns of the brass fitting into the filter cap.The brass fitting will expel the excess Teflon paste, as you insert the treads. Then clean all around and leave the fitting area spotlessly clean.
Checking for leaks - slowly open the water valve until the filter is full, then open maximum once the filter is full. Going through this stage will prevent the water from bursting inside the water filter damaging the cartridge.
If the filter cap by chance is sweating (water coming in small drops) just give another 1/4 turn on the brass fitting.
DO NOT USE PLUMBERS PUTTY as it is not for drinking water.
Doing the above steps will help you in solving the issue of the leaking.
06/302014. This is not a cheap water filter housing, but in my opinion it is a benchmark for which
you measure any other filter on the market in a quality of product. However, the water cap
has its short comings,but overall it is one of the best you can purchase at the moment.
Filter cap, is made of white polypropylene(# 6889932), soft material so you must be careful
when handling the threads when you insert brass fittings. The cap will leak, the only way around
this fault is to use (must) pipe thread sealant "T plus 2". This is a Teflon paste sealer,
non -toxic, and will stop any leaking in/on the threads.
O-ring gasket is available on the internet [...] and you can purchase a dozen for under $25.00 which
amounts to $1.80 a piece plus shipping, good deal. You must always have extra available
in case the O-rings ruptures you have an immediate replacement,.
My tip, buy one 1" water inlet if your house water input is under 1", then put reduction on the
filter cap, if you"re installing 2 or more between filters use 1" pipe to eliminate loss of water pressure.
On the last filter reduce back to the house water plumbing.
