The Mounting Bracket is in the way of the gauges and you cannot tighten them down far enough to prevent leaks, unless you use an exorbitant amount of Teflon tape. Bad Design. The gauges will bottom out on the bracket far before the threads are tight. The screws provided to mount the bracket to the housing are too large for the molded holes in the standoffs... When you tighten the screws the standoffs Split Open. The standoffs Must be drilled out to prevent this. Lastly the 1" Female NPT inlet and exit are not designed properly. You can only achieve a good seal using a pipe ******. If you try and use a male NPT adapter that has a hex on it, the hex will bottom out against the plastic housing before the threads are tight, causing leaks. Did anyone actually test this design before it was forced into production?
Hi Robert, Thank you for your valued feedback and I am sorry that you had difficulties assembling the Dragon Sediment filter. We haven't had anybody else to tell us the same thing about the components of the Dragon. Perhaps you received one with different parts. We can send you one that is pre-assembled. Would you like for us to send you another Dragon Sediement filter that is pre-assembled?
