Potential challenge when transitioning from a Woder Gen3 to a Gen4 replacement cartridge.

Woder Filters has recently made a significant advancement in its product line, transitioning from the Gen3 to the highly anticipated Gen4 series. This latest upgrade brings forth several notable advantages, primarily centered around the improved media and enhanced cartridge durability.

The Woder Gen4 water filters exhibit a remarkable improvement in their ability to remove heavy metals, making them even more effective in safeguarding the quality and purity of your drinking water. One crucial aspect of the Gen4 filtration system lies in its state-of-the-art cartridge design, which offers enhanced durability and longevity.

However, it is important to note that a potential challenge may arise when transitioning from a Gen3 replacement cartridge to a Gen4 replacement cartridge.

In approximately 3% to 5% of cases, visible leaks have been observed during the installation process. Extensive analysis of this issue has revealed that the root cause can be attributed to slight differences in the upper “teethes” of the cartridge (above the threads). Over time, the Gen3 cartridge becomes “married” to the mounting head, because of various factors such as heat conditions and sedimentation present in the municipal water supply. This marriage between the cartridge and the mounting head affects the flexibility of the latter, preventing it from adjusting adequately to the upper “teethes” of the Gen4 cartridge.

Consequently, this mismatch leads to the occurrence of leaks, that are visible during installation. To address this challenge, we strongly recommend replacing the mounting head when switching from a Gen3 to a Gen4 replacement cartridge.

By replacing the mounting head, which serves as the interface between the cartridge and the filtration system, customers can overcome the compatibility issue and eliminate the risk of leaks entirely.

We understand the importance of providing reliable and high-quality water filtration solutions, and we are fully committed to ensuring customer satisfaction. By proactively addressing the potential leaks during the installation process, we strive to maintain the exceptional performance and reputation of the Gen4 series. Woder Filters remains dedicated to delivering innovative and dependable water filtration systems that consistently exceed customer expectations.
