How often should I replace the filter bowl on my sediment filter.

To prevent costly repairs or possible water damage filter housing manufacturers strongly recommend that the bowl or sump of all plastic housings be replaced periodically: 

Every five years for clear sumps, and every ten years for opaque sumps. 

If your sump has been in use for more than the recommended period, it should be replaced immediately.  Be sure to date any new or replacement sump for future reference and indicate the next recommended replacement date.

NOTE: Filter housing must be protected from the following environments conditions.

→ Exposure to organic solvents such as those found in aerosol sprays for cleaning products and insecticides, may cause clear housings to crack with time causing failure and leakage. The risk of this exposure is greatest but not limited to Point Of Use (POU) filters installed in the cabinets below kitchen sinks.

→ Filter housings should not be installed where exposed to direct sunlight or thru a window. This is especially important for filters with clear filter bowls.

→All filter housings regardless of material must be protected against freezing.  Failure to due so WILL result in cracking of the filter and water leakage.
