How to remove clips on my Whirlpool central water filter

I have model WHELJ1 filter and am replacing the flooring under it. I am unable to remove the two clips that connect it to the house plumbing. Any suggestions?

Not sure what clips but if like a Shark bite fitting you will need a tool to release them, Think you can get them at Either HD or Lowes

It looks like the clips just pull off, maybe gently with a pair of pliers or a screw driver.

I haven't used clips like that before, but they seem to be pretty simple.

Instruction Manual for WHELJ1 - see page 8

They just pull straight up. A pair of pliers to do it will work.
Make sure the waters off!
