This Pentek 150237 1” #10 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 10” 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 100 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.

Top Customer Reviews
This unit was installed after I had a new well drilled on my property.
Water was slightly red from the disturbed iron layer that the well drillers hit on the way to the water table.
Installation was a matter of hooking the water tank house feed pipe to the inlet of the filter housing and the house feed to the outlet of the filter.
There are "in " and "out" arrows on the housing for ease of installation.
I purchased 2 additional filters, Pentek DGD-5005 Spun Polypropylene Filter Cartridge, 10" x 4-1/2", 5 Microns, and an extra "O" ring, Pentek, Pentair Water 151122 Big Blue O-Ring Buna-N ORing.
The filter works great and the water tastes great also.
I changed the filter today and the old filter was full of red iron sediment. It did the job perfectly. I feel that the next filter change will be almost clean of iron since the water from the tank, which is before the filter, is getting pretty clean now. All filter changes should now be at 90 day intervals or so.
Filter change tip:
Hand loosen and hand tighten the blue canister to avoid damage to the "O" ring and or threads on the canister.
Clean the "O" ring and then lightly coat the ring with a touch of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly.
This keeps the ring from sticking to the upper housing and makes filter changes easy.
After the new filter is in place purge the filter by running a cold water tap at full blast for about 15 minutes.
You may notice the water getting very white and foamy. Not to worry, it will clear.
Once the water is clear and clean your done.
Enjoy your clean water.
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.
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. These have to be attached to the wall with preferably something sturdy either to the studs or a board attached across the studs.
Use: once everything was connected, I washed my hands thoroughly and took the O-ring and silicone lubricant that came with the housing. I spread a thin layer of the silicone lubricant in the channel using about half of what came with it. I then seated the O-ring in the channel and pressed down all around. Then I used the rest of the lube on the top of the O-ring. In the future when changing the filters, I plan on reapplying the lubricant. You can find it in your local hardware store for under a buck. I dropped in my filter and screwed in the blue bottom of the housing to the top. Once it was hand tight, I used the filter wrench to give it a little tighten. It didn't turn very much with the wrench but it seated it firmly. Open any shutoff valves to the housing and check for leaks. If there are any, immediately shut off water to the housing and tighten up areas with leaks. Once you are leak-free, be careful with the red pressure relief button on the top! It doesn't take much relieve the pressure and water will start shooting out.
With my entire system in place, I did not notice any loss in pressure so this worked exactly as expected!
