How To Remove Whole House Filter
The bypass busted on this Dupont whole house filter so I bought an identical replacement for it. Went to change it out and realized when I spin the unit around the threads it loosens on one side but tightens on the other side.
Decided to leave it for now, Unfortunately I must of shredded the plumbers tape enough that I'm leaking out both outlet and inlet as marked in picture. So now I want it off but can't figure out how to remove it.
Plumbing is not my strong suit, but I'm very motivated to DIY this one.
As mentioned I already have an identical replacement ready to go, just need some guidance on how to remove the old unit and screw on the new one.
Any tips, tricks, and tools I'll need would be MUCH appreciated.
