Hydrologic reverse osmosis system

Hydrologic reverse osmosis system

The Sonoma greenhouse gets its water from a well which is high in minerals. The owner installed a reverse osmosis system that has been producing less and less water. Now, even in the low watering time of year, it barely keeps up with the usage.

I need to maintain the system. As far as I can tell, that means replacing the three filters. I have found some spare filters and have figured out how to remove the bottom two containers. So far the top one, the one which is the actual RO part of the system, is being stuborn.

Does anybody have one of these? It looks as if it should be hand-tight but it is too tight for me. Where is it safe to grip the tube with a wrench? Any other hints for getting the cap off the top unit?
