Were exactly is it leaking from?

If it's leaking from the filter housing there is nothing you can do other then replace the filter again.

I know not from the filter itself. I would guessing here, but where the filter plug into. I going to remove the cover around where the filter plug into to see better where the water is coming from tomorrow.

From what I can tell it is the receiving end of the filter. where to main come in and out are dry. I guessing wear on the mating surface of receiver of filter is bad. I would try replacing the filter, but I just replace it about month ago. Beside replacing the receiver unit is to try different  O rings maybe bit larger. Plus I have another filter in front of it. Basically I have double filter system.

Maybe they sold you a BoBo water filter. I would ask about that.

I bought the filter base, but I can not get the hoses out. I pop back the little blue ring, still will not come out. One ring I broke. Any suggestions?

Never mind, I ended up using demel tool to cut the end of the base. Then I got the hoses out. Of after all that, it still leaks. Tomorrow go buy another water filter.
