Wrong linetype showing up

I can not get the correct linetype to show up on my domestic hot water return (DHWR) piping.  My filters are set and show the correct linetype but in the views, it is showing up like dom. hot water (DHW).  The system classification is DHW but system type and name is DHWR.  I'm sure it's an easy fix but can't figure it out.  Thanks.

Did you try moving the DHWR filter up or down in relation to DHW. Also is the DHWR connected to DHW. If so try putting a reducer or connecter betweeen the two.

Can you not change DHW to DHWF seeing as you have DHWR piping?

When creating filters you have to be careful when creating the rules to make them as unique as possible otherwise you run into this type of problem.

As TonyVAV says - order of the filters matters too as Revit appears to work down the list, top to bottom. Also be aware that the Type Comment for pipe systems does not work in filters - rather annoyingly
