Sediment Filter Cartridge 4.5 x 20 20 Micron

Watts WPC20FF20 is a 20 micron 4.5'' x 20'' pleated sediment water filter cartridge.



Product SKU: WPC20FF20



Watts WPC20FF20 is a 20 micron 4.5" x 20" pleated sediment water filter cartridge.**

Watts, cellulose free, 100% synthetic pleated catridges hold their form unlike cellulose blended pleats which collapse in on themselves. This allows the cartridge to handle higher solids loading and flow rates with a lower pressure drop that increases the filter efficiency and life, while reducing filter change out costs and frequency.

Choose this type of cartridge over cellulose blended pleats and you won't be disappointed.

100% synthetic media is washable which means it lasts longer.

Pleated sediment filters are ideal for use as a UV or RO pre-filter.

Why do I need to change the o-ring?

You can tell if the seals start leaking, which is obvious, I know.

Even if there are no leaks you may find that the profile of the O ring becomes flattened because of prolonged time under compression. The cross section should be round and if it's not it may not seal easily.

However, I recommend that you replace the O rings every two or three years as a precautionary measure.

One of the main reasons for changing O rings periodically is that as they age and compress, the housing bowl needs to be tightened excessively. That leads to difficulty loosening the bowl from the cap next time the cartridge needs to be replaced.
