A:

Take the filter to a sold surface such as a solid work bench. Wrap the filter with a towel to keep from marking the plastic. Place the filter on the solid surface and tap around the base with a hammer. Don't hit the filter base hard enough to crack it. The vibrations from the tapping will usually loosen the threads so you can unscrew it.

Q:

How can I open my counter top water filter to change the filter cartridge? I have a wrench, no go.

A:

Place one hand behind the filter to steady it. Wrap a cloth around a hammer head to prevent marking the plastic part of the filter housing that screws over the thread.

Hold the filter base firmly with the hand on back to prevent movement and tap all around the plastic portion where the threads are.

The vibration of the tapping will normally loosen the threads.

If this doesn't work disconnect the filter from the sink faucet. Get someone to hold the base while you unscrew the filter housing.
