Rated 1 out of 5 by hodaglefty from Pressure Relief Button - Poor Design, leaks After spending much time trying to fix the leaking red pressure relief button after using it to switch out the filter, I have concluded that the o-ring seating of the relief button is prone to failure thus causing the device to leak after being re-pressurized. After speaking with GE customer service and reading the information from other users with problem GE filters, the best solution GE could come up with was to stop using the red pressure relief button and instead flush your toilet, after the water is turned off, to relieve water pressure to allow for filter servicing. They also told me I could exchange or return my filter. They seemed totally unimpressed by the frequency and similarity of the other complaints on this unit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by UpsetPlumber from Pressure relief button is JUNK! I just re-plumbed the entire area between our well and the main house supply line including a new water softener, room for an iron filter, and this water filter. 50-something solder joints on 3/4" copper, and everything worked PERFECT when I turned the water on. Now, a month later, I went to change the filter for the first time. I put the unit in bypass, hit the pressure-relief button for a second to eliminate the pressure, then changed the filter. However, when I turned the water supply back ON, the pressure relief button started SPEWING water out the center hole!!! 3-4 attempts at re-seating the button have all failed to even slow the leak. So now, I have to leave it in bypass (which, by the way, still releases a drip every 10-15 seconds) until I can go buy a DIFFERENT-BRAND replacement and return this one!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dave4T from Red button problems I've had this water filter for a few years. My unit just developed the leaking red button. I bought the same model so I don't have to do any plumbing modifications. Going forward,I won't use the red button.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Erik375 from This product works I have had this unit installed in my house for over 7 years and have had no problems with it. It was simple to install and I did the work myself. I do not use the reminder light because the quality of the water from my well changes with the seasons and amount of rain. Plus different filter elements last longer than others. If you have a consistent well or city water, the reminder light may be good for you. Overall, this filter works and the clear filter housing is a nice feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Keitho1951 from A terrific filter! I've had this filter as a whole-house filtering unit for over a year. It really cleans the water, turning the white filter brown. Previously, all of that sediment was present in my dishwasher, clothes washer, shower and heating system. Many people don't understand this. After Hurricane Sandy, we had to replace all of our appliances and we wanted to be sure that our water-based appliances used only filtered water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Leaky from Poor design The red release button leaks. Small particles can get into the valve and not allow it to seal resulting in the leak. This is a design flaw there is nothing you can do about it but hope that the particles get flushed out. The only solution is to call your plumber and replace it with a better designed unit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TotalllySoaked from Agree with Upset Plumbier! First time I tried to changed filter the red release valve runs water....I did what GE reply suggested 3 times...I give up...Am running the system on bypass until I can replace, and this is not good due to the sediment from my well!
