Seems pretty cheap that they can't provide a one piece brass T fitting. wow.

I guess they don't actually mill or make anything for their stuff. If they're just sourcing parts, why not use a sensible one with hose clamps? ...

The filter head is pretty nice but even that was cut on a fast feed speed. The line right through the center of the nipple hole in my pic looks like a crack but I think it’s a parting line from a casting process but I’m not sure. I dont think the T fitting is anodized, looks like the blue was sprayed on. Also the hoses are longer now than when they were new, lol.

i will say though, the first couple of filters had some grey sandy junk and a little rust in them. I changed them in the spring before we start camping season so once a year not paying any attention to miles or anything. The last few filters have had pretty much nothing in them so feel like the system is clean. I’m just going to remove it eventually because it’s getting old and more possible leak points. I ain’t mad at them, it seems like it did it’s job, just dying a little sooner than I expected.
