The WECO Big Blue sediment filter is designed for Point Of Entry (POE) industrial and residential filtration applications. The rugged reinforced polypropylene housing holds a 20-inch sediment filter cartridge. The pleated polyester filter cartridge is a premium sediment filter used in ultra-pure filtration applications. The sediment cartridge removes sand, grit, precipitated mineral particles, insoluble iron oxide and other debris down to 5 microns. The Big Blue sediment filter housing has 1” female NPT in and out connections that support high flow rates. The pressure relief button allows for easy air bleeding and cartridge change-outs. The WECO BB-20SED sediment filter is the ideal solution for removing harmful sediment from residential and commercial water supplies. The BB-20SED protects all water-using appliances, such as dish washing machines, clothes washers, and ice makers from damage and clogging. Abrasive particulate matter will prematurely wear out faucet seals, O-rings, pumps and solenoid valves used in dish washing machines and clothes washers. Sand grains, grit and iron oxide clog the fine screens and tubing used in commercial coffee makers, expresso machines and beverage dispensers. The BB-20SED is recommended for sensitive medical and dental equipment to ensure trouble-free operation and reduced maintenance costs. The WECO Big Blue Sediment Water Filter will also serve as a high-capacity pre-filter to protect whole house and commercial reverse osmosis systems, water softeners and WECO specialty filtration systems.

We recommend a 3-way bypass installation using 3 ball valves. The picture shows the unit in "Service" position. Valves on the left and the right are open; center valve is closed. Water flows through the filter.
To bypass, close the right and left valves and open the center. Water flows around the filter.
The bypass will work without the right or the left valve, but it's best to have both because it allows isolation of the filter completely from the house plumbing if desired.
