Comments about Culligan Whole House Clear Water Filter Housing (HF-360A):
I bought a Culligan Whole House Clear Water Filter Housing (HF-360) and filters (and pipe fittings, of course) for the toilet feed in a home I was renting. (The landlord gave permission, conditional that I ate the costs. I installed it myself - a typical Handyman job).
I chose the filter that catches the smallest particles, and it did a great job of keeping sand and silt in the (very old) water line from clogging the valve. Without this filter, the toilet would 'seep' - keep running very slowly - 24/7. Replacing the tank valve only solved the problem for a few days, but the filter was a permanent solution.
I love the see-through case, as it lets you see when the filter is beginning to clog and needs changing. Although the sight of the trash in the water line may gross some folks out, it shows the justification for buying the filter.
Because you can see the state of the filter, you don't have to wait for reduced flow to tell you to replace it. (Don't you hate it when you turn on the water and it just dribbles out? Especially if it happens when you are in the shower?)
I liked this unit so much that I bought a second for my RV. Now I know there is no sand or silt in my water tank when I'm camping.
The things I don't like are the plastic handle on the valve used to shut of the main feed (to change the filter), and the placement and configuration of the pressure bleed valve. It is hard to tell which way is "on" and which way is "off" because the handle rotates 180 degrees and the embossed lettering is impossible to read in a dark area (like under the toilet, down in the basement or under the sink. Perhaps it would be better if "off" was at 90 degrees (like most ball valves) or if there were some sort of color code.
Likewise, the pressure relief valve is concealed under the shut-off valve (shutting off the main feed operates the relief valve and can dribble water - have a rag and/or pan handy). Better if it were placed elsewhere, manually operated, and had an "over-flow" pipe to direct the flow into a container.
When I end a trip with my RV I can "back flush" the filter by blowing out the left over water in the tank through the filter. (I by-pass the back-flow check valve on the input line – two ball valves do the trick). It's kind of fun (and VERY satisfying) to watch the pebbles and silt flow BACK OUT of the filter (onto the front lawn). Of course, that does not put an end to the need to replace the filter from time to time, you just don't have to replace it as often.
