Replacement for GE SmartWater Universal Inline Water Filter (GXRTQR).
In 2017, GE discontinued the GXRTQR filter and replaced it with the GXRTDR with quick connect fittings. This left many customers (who purchased the GXRTQ system) with plumbing line connections which were not compatible with the new filter.
We have created this compatible kit, which allows customers to continue to use their APC style plumbing couplings. We include everything you need to create a compatible inline water filtration solution. This universal inline filter reduces unpleasant taste and odor while minimizing dirt, rust and sediment.
INCLUDED IN THE KIT:
(3) Hydronix ICF-10 Inline Filter - 2.5" Diameter X 10"L, with 1/4" Female Pipe Threads (FNPT)
(6) APC fittings with 1/4" Male Pipe Threads (MNPT)
(1) Roll of teflon thread-sealing tape
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:
1). Remove blue caps from the end of the filter, prying away with a flathead screwdriver
2). Wrap threads of fittings with included Teflon tape. Wrap the tape in the same direction of the threads. Keep tension on the tape and wrap it several times working away from the end of the fitting
3). Screw the wrapped fittings into the ends of the filters and tighten
4). Connect filter to water supply line
