Dave,
If you were referring to the Vid, it was the Wine Expert White Merlot.

The clear screw-on housing can be hard to tighten or loosen if a good seal is made with the O-ring inside. That's why people recommend a wrench for the filter housing. The bracket is for attaching the whole house filter to your bench to hold it tightly when removing or installing the clear filter housing with a wrench or your hands. Without the bracket, it is hard to hold the filter and remove the bottom housing with a wrench.

You just jumped the gun, because after the 6 gallons of White Merlot, I filtered 6 gallons of DB! Now if you can only predict the end of the world, I'd be really impressed! You can't do any worse than the last couple of predictions!

Hi guys

I want to build my own wine-filter set-up and unfortunately filtersfast.com don't ship to Iceland where I live. Does anyone know where else I can order from?

Thanks.
Mano

Take those Part # and do a google search for them - or email the manufacturer
and ask them also.

I thought Shoebiedoo meant that you could hook up the filter and provide filtered WINE throughout the house! Guess that was a Freudian slurp!

FWIW, I have both housings, the one with the air bleed button on top and the one without. I could never get the button to stop leaking air so I ordered the one without the button. It works great, no air leaks with only hand tightening.
