Well, since you didn't pull off the plastic from the gasket, any issues with leaks?

I'm surprised this writeup hasn't received more attention.

Thanks for the write-up.

Now THIS is the kind of thing people should be getting rep points for.

+1 to you

Did the new filter have an o-ring or rubber seal of some type?

^^ Yes, that's what holds the filter in place.

I don't know why we didn't sticky this one, I forgot how Chad wanted to do it, so I'll sticky this thread and ask him.
