Watts® Jumbo Cartridge Filters

watts jumbo cartridge filter installerWith optional activated carbon cartridge to remove Chlorine, bad tastes, foul odors and sediment.

Rugged Construction
Filter housings are made of rugged, glass-reinforced polypropylene so they will not chip, rust or dent. And because all wetted surfaces are non-metallic, they are ideal when chemical compatibility is an issue and for sea water applications.

Low Cost
Filters are an economical replacement for stainless steel filtration equipment because of their non-metallic construction and today’s high cost of stainless steel!

Jumbo Cartridge Filters are ideal for a wide range of applications, including:

  • Whole house filtration
  • Commercial filtration
  • Industrial filtration
  • Pre-filtration for reverse osmosis equipment
  • Community water systems
  • Sea water applications due to their non-corrosive construction
  • Replacement for bag filters more filter area
  • Replacement for multiple cartridge filters for greater convenience
  • Water for livestock and poultry

Conserves Water!
Watts whole house filters with our proprietary pleated activated carbon cartridge conserves water because backwashing is not required, making them 100% efficient.

E-Z Change-Out
Cartridge replacement is easy as 1-2-3:

  1. Remove swing bolts.
  2. Remove lid.
  3. Rotate cartridge 1/4 turn and pull-up.

Three Cartridge Types!

For flow rates up to 150 GPM using 100% cellulose free media (cleanable 5 micron up). Ideal for more critical applications, offering greater efficiency, more surface area for greater throughput and reduced cost.

Three-In-One Technology

Provides peace of mind and safe, great tasting water, supplied to every tap in the house.

Here’s how it works:

Step #1

0.2 Micro-Filtration
Hydro-Safe filter cartridge is pleated for greater surface area using a micro-fiber, rated at 0.2 micron. This unique filter media is certified under NSF / ANSI Standard 53 for cysts reduction with the capacity to remove sub-micron particles and harmful microorganisms with very little pressure drop or flow restriction.

Step #2

Carbon Treatment
An exceptionally fine activated carbon powder is added to the sub micron filter fiber using an electrostatic bonding process. Activated carbon provides a secondary treatment process to remove chlorine, taste and odors.

UV Light Disinfection
During the final process, water flows into a stainless steel reaction chamber where it is exposed to a 254 nanometer UV lamp. Inside this chamber bacteria, viruses and other harmful microorganisms are destroyed to provide disinfection without the use of chemicals.
