Product Description

This Pentek 150233 20-BB 1” #20 Big Blue filter housing with pressure relief is suitable for high-flow and heavy sediment applications. The opaque blue sump is made of reinforced polypropylene for strength and resistance to chemicals, and the black cap is made of high-flow polypropylene (HFPP) for stiffness. The black cap has 1” female National Pipe Thread Taper (NPT) threaded input and output connections and a nitrile butadiene rubber (Buna-N) O-ring to ensure a watertight seal. A pressure relief button on the inlet side of the cap releases pressure in the housing for changing filter cartridges. The housing can be used with a 20” x 4-1/2” filter cartridge (sold separately). It has an initial pressure drop of 1 pound per square inch (psi) at a flow rate of 15 gallons per minute (gpm), a maximum operating pressure of 90 psi, and a maximum operating temperature of 100 degrees F (37.8 degrees C). This filter housing meets National Sanitation Foundation/American National Standards Institute (NSF/ANSI) standard 42 for quality assurance, and is for use in various high-flow applications, including residential drinking water filtration, food service, and irrigation, among others.

Specifications

Filter cartridge size (H x W) (sold separately) 20 x 4-1/2 inches (508 x 114 mm)
Initial pressure drop at 15 gpm 1 psi
Maximum temperature 100 degrees F (37.8 degrees C)
Maximum pressure 90 psi
Maximum dimensions (H x W) 23-3/8 x 7-1/4 inches (594 x 184 mm)

H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.

Water filters remove undesirable particles, chemicals, and microorganisms from water by means of a semipermeable barrier, adsorption, or biological processes. They are made of densely packed synthetic or natural fibers that trap suspended particles, materials that block microbes or adsorb unwanted chemicals, or substances that cause a chemical change, such as acid neutralization. For most residential, commercial, and industrial applications, water filters are manufactured in the form of replaceable cartridges that fit inside permanent housings. Filtration systems typically consist of a series of two or more types of filters, each designed to remove different contaminants. The performance of filters is measured by the minimum particle size that is blocked, the percentage of particles or microorganisms that are removed, the downstream concentration of unwanted chemicals, the maximum flow rate, and the amount of water that can be filtered before the filter must be replaced. Water filters are used in a wide range of applications, including drinking water purification, swimming pools, industrial processes, and irrigation, among others.

Pentair manufactures industrial, commercial, and residential water filtration components and systems. The company, founded in 1966 and headquartered in Minneapolis, MN, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards 9001 and 14001 for quality assurance.

I know the dimensions are given, but the size of this thing is surprising when seen in person. I had a water softener and charcoal filter installed but felt I needed a prefilter to prevent premature failure of the media in those two filters. I wanted something that would take a large filter so that I wouldn't have to change it as often and also maximize flow and this thing fits the bill. The life expectancy of the sump is 10 years so I should get plenty of life out of it.

My only complaint is that while directions aren't necessary, the product doesn't come with screw to mount it to a bracket, nor does it indicate the proper size. I had to do some research to find the right sizes needed. Those turned out to be 5/16" x 1 1/4" lag bolts for anyone looking at one of these.

These are the standard by which all others are measured. I live on a small farm with 3 low flow wells and they all have their problems. Currently I'm doing a 2 step process bringing water into a cistern and then into the house from there. I've had a big blue before the cistern and then one between there and the house for several years now. Good flow, great pressure, never a problem, never a leak. I couldn't ask for more. I'm now setting up a second cistern for irrigation water and just ordered two more and noticed these are hardly reviewed. It's a shame as these are a great product.

I bought this as a pre-filter to my Aquasana EQ-1000 whole house filter. I also bought the Pentek 150237 10" Big Blue Filter Housing as a post filter to the entire system (I am using the same review for both since I had the same experience with both). I also bought the brackets for the Big Blue filters found here on Amazon. I live in an area that on a good day might get 50 psi of water pressure so I wanted to keep as much of the pressure as possible. Seeing as I was lucky enough to have a 1" service line on my house, I kept the plumbing 1" up until I got to my utility room. So the filter system would have to be before the utility room on the one inch line.

Installation: to connect the housings to the supply lines, I used brass compression fittings. This would allow me to completely remove the individual housings should I even need to perform maintenance. These fittings were tricky to find as I had to go to a plumbing supply store to find them. So they thread into the housing and then compress onto the 1" supply lines. Whatever you use, make sure and use plumbing tape on the threads but not pipe dope. For some reason I was told not to use that. As for the brackets, if you do not get the screws needed to attach the housings to the brackets (and you do need the brackets), they are 5/16 1¼" long lag screws. The housings are not threaded to accept screws which is why you use lag screws. Once the bracket was in place, I set a 5/16" washer on the lag bolt and then used a socket wrench to slowly start tightening the bolt in place. Just be careful and go slow and it will go in straight. Repeat for the other three. To attach the bracket to the wall, you can 3/8" bolts whatever kind suits your method of attaching it to the wall.

Installed this Pentek 20" filter housing along with the Pentek filter cartridge DGD-5005-20 (which filters down to the 5 micron level). Before doing this our well water from the faucet was so cloudy you couldn't see thru an 8 oz. glass of water. After installing it a 1 gallon jug filled from the faucet is absolutely crystal clear. No more discoloration in the shower, tub, sink, laundry, etc. It works amazingly well. I am no plumber but I figured out how to install it myself using about $20 of parts from Lowes (plastic pipe and couplings, pipe cement/solvent, a shut-off valve, and two 1" to 3/4" adapters). If you have cloudy water from sediment and iron, this unit (with the above filter cartridge) takes care of the problem completely.

I bought this in conjunction with a g.a.c. to filter the sulfer out of my water. It was pretty easy to install. The threaded connection required 8 wraps of teflon tape and to be tightened all the way in order not to leak. Use 5/16 hex screws to fasten. After install there was no more sulfer smell.

Just because it is blue and the right external size does not mean all filter refills will fit. I purchased this after I bought some filters for my old Big Blue canister and found that the insides are different. This was to replace the old canister. The good: the mounting holes are the same, pipe connections are the same and there is a vent button to relieve the pressure when changing filters. The bad: old canister has a place to put in a pressure gauge so that one can see if filter is clogging up and it is time for replacement but the new does not.

Like the 20" big blue filter housings, but purchased two and one of them leaks at the pressure release button.
Called Pentek and they sent a replacement button with spring, but it still leaks unless you press it in manually from the filter side of the cap. Seems a defect in the housing cap...but not worth the hassle to cut the plumbing to replace it as it works fine providing you dont push the button until you are ready to change the filter (which is the intent anyway). Still only 3 stars due to the quality problem out of the box!
