I bought a Culligan water filter which hooks to my outside tap and then my hose hooks to it. When I hooked it up tonight for the first time there was no pressure at all. Is this normal? I took it off because it was useless to have it hooked up. Am I doing something wrong?

The times I have tried to use the inline water hose filters, I found them to be very restrictive and easily plugged. The best bet is to go to Home Depot and get a large filter with replacable filters and the fittings to adapt it to a water hose. They cost morebut do work much better.

Oh, wondered about our screen name? I am in the refrigeration business...so what is cold...ice and I can make ice and originally from Texas.

To add to the drama, we lived in Toronto for the two coldest years of our lives....

Be sure that the water regulator is after the filter. I too have the Calligan water filter and I have not noticed any drop in the water pressure, or for that matter in improvement in the water's taste. Make sure that your filter is not clogged and that you are using the "correct" filter for Calligan.
