This Pentek 150467 20-BB 3/4" #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 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 2 pounds 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.

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 went with a the Pentek R30-20BB Pleated Polyester Filter, because it is supposed to be reusable with a quick rinse. I haven't had to rinse it yet so I can't say how well it works after rinsing. There were many complaints that the Pentek EP-20BB Carbon Block Filter reduced system pressure by ~5 PSI. My pressure tank runs between 50 psi to 32 psi and to be honest I don't notice the pressure drop at all. My well pump is rather quick and only takes ~30s to raise the pressure back to 50psi. I suspect that's masking the filter concerns others had.
The installation was pretty straight forward. I'd recommend MAP over propane for soldering as I could finish a joint with ~15s of heat. I would also highly recommend a good heat shield. I had to solder some joints next to drywall and my heat shield was able to withstand all that heat without transferring any of it to the drywall. It wasn't even warm.
My only complaint is that the filter housing doesn't include a wrench. I was able to hand tighten them, but I'm sure I'll need a wrench to unscrew them. I also had to order a third filter housing as one of the original ones had broken tabs which hold the filter.Read more ›
The housing is a very hard and heavy type of reinforced plastic. The kind of heft that does not make me wonder if it would burst when I was not home.
The only thing that could use improvement is the filter centering ring in the bottom of the housing could be taller for better filter centering.
This unit is large but after 1 month I changed the filter and it was packed with dirt so the extra surface area of a filter this size is a must. It could have been used another month most likely.
I chose Pentek because they are a manufacturer with a public presence on the web so there is some manufacturing accountability unlike a lot of generic plumbing products.
1. The o-ring has a complete U-channel shape in the sump to sit within, whereas on the Watts housing it sits within a quarter-round on the very outside edge of the housing. As a result, the o-ring on the Pentek stays put, whereas on the Watts it falls off easily and creates a royal hassle when re-threading the sump.
2. The Pentek sump comes with a little package of silicon grease for the gasket, whereas the Watts does not.
3. The Watts heads, when two were threaded together, were out of alignment about 10 degrees, which made doing a nice-looking plumbing installation unnecessarily challenging.
4. The SW-4 filter wrench fits this Pentek housing perfectly, whereas it does not fit well on the Watts housing. Be sure to get a different wrench specific to the Watts if you go that route.
5. It felt like the head/sump threads were machined much cleaner on the Pentek than the Watts.
Basically, this one works - installation was simple, as it should be.
Additional notes: Make sure you order the housing bracket, filter wrenches, and lag screws to attach the housing to the bracket and the bracket to a board. Also a good idea to order a spare O-ring. Another good idea is to lube the sump threads to a plumbers lubricant. You can get the plumber's lubricant and lag screws at homedepot, lowes or any hardware store.
