There are no screws included, nor is there a description of the type of screw that works, so even if I could figure out an acceptable way to mount it, I couldn't attach it to the housing. By the way, for those who have figured out a way to mount it without the bracket, the housing takes 5/16x1 bolts.
I went to the big orange box store to see if they carried the bracket and I could finish my project, but alas, no bracket. They did offer to order it for me, for almost 20 bucks, but it wouldn't arrive for a week or so. I did check out their in stock filters, and to my surprise, they carried a different brand of the SAME FILTER HOUSING. It was white, not blue, but had the exact same specifications and even had the same air purge button. I mean, exactly - like it came of the very same mold (wink wink). And, drumroll please - it even included the mounting bracket!!
Total price for the "orange" unit was a few dollars more the DuPont housing, but given that it included the necessary bracket, it ended up being fifteen bucks less than the DuPont housing with the bracket. Needless to say, I bought the "orange" unit and had it installed in about an hour. I will send the other back to Amazon, because Amazon's return policy is awesome.
To cut off a long story, you probably ought not to purchase this without the bracket. The smarter move? Look for a different/complete solution.
Finally - a note to DuPont Marketing. There is noting that bugs a DIY'r more than starting a project without all of the parts necessary to finish job. Please consider charging a few bucks more and including the bracket, its the only way to do it right.
It was a fairly easy install depending on how handy you are. I have copper pipping, so there was a little more work there. I wanted to add a bypass loop with this in case it failed, and for easy filter changes. The project took me about 5 hours. I couldn't find any 1" compression adapters like stated in their directions, so I ended up using a 1" copper sweat to male threaded fitting. Some mentioned how they needed to use a lot of plumbers tape. How much is a lot? 14 total wraps worked for me the first time.
We have a private well, and this did almost eliminate the rotten egg smell from the hard water lines (very subtle now, I have to try to smell it). The smell is completely gone from the soft water lines. My next filter change will be with a Dupont Carbon 2 stage filter to hopefully completely eliminate the smell.
To me, this filter was well worth the time and money to improve the quality of our water. I'm no longer worried about guests telling me my water smells. In addition, my appliances will last longer.
Caution: There is a lot of assembly required. If you're not a handy person you should consult a local plumber.
They will find this to be a fairly simple install and have it done in an hour or so.
I happen to have some skills and I put them to use but one thing I didn't count on was there being NO mounting brackets. They were a ridiculous 25$ on Amazon or any other site I checked out. So I got some measurements and went to my work and made some out of .120 aluminum. If any of you know someone that works at a metal shop or fabricating garage they can make these for you in a jiffy with the scraps they got lying around.
Very happy with this purchase so far. I'd recommend
One complaint is that the unit is difficult to unscrew when replacing the filter. A simple solution is to grease the threads on the male part and it comes right apart. I used marine grease. Also do not over tighten! Screw it together by hand until it feels tight and then use the wrench that is supplied and turn it 1/8 to 1/4 max. turn more. Be sure to apply silicon grease to the "O" ring before installing.
Another complaint is that the inlet tends to crack. In my experience the only way to crack the inlet connections is to use way too much tape and/or to way over tighten. Remember it is plastic not metal and even though it is heavy plastic too much force might crack the inlet, but to do so would be a real DUH. I used two raps of tape along with paste and screwed the fittings in all the way to the bottom with no problems so if you crack the head you have to do something really over the top.
Now about the filter that comes with it. For the average filtering needs it may be fine, but because of my iron problem being as bad as it is I did NOT use the DuPont WFHDC3001 filter cartridge that is supplied. Instead I ordered the DuPont WFHDC8001 carbon rap cartridge which is 5 micron and it works great. I am hoping to get at least 3 months out of a filter.
