Viqua AWP42B-V 3-Piece Housing Package
Part #: AWP42B-V
Made in Italy, the Viqua AWP42B-V 3-Piece housing is a premium water filter housing designed for residential and light commercial applications (flow rates up to about 20 GPM). For higher flow rate applications, multiple housings can be used in a parallel flow configuration.
Instead of twisting the filter sump against the filter head to compress the o-ring to obtain a seal (like a conventional housing), the 3-piece configuration of this housing uses a separate collar to twist on to threads on the filter cap. This design greatly reduces wear and tear on the o-ring, decreasing stretching and the risk of o-ring leaks. The large collar is also much easier to remove than traditional designs making filter changes faster and easier.
The sump features a drain port to remove water from the housing before replacing the filter. This reduces water spillage, making filter changes easier and less messy. The housing also comes equipped with a pressure release button and a threaded port that can be used to install a pressure gauge.
Enhancing value even further, all AWP High Flow Series 3-Piece housings come complete with a sturdy powder-coated mounting bracket kit and spanner wrench.
AWP42B-V 3-Piece housings accept standard 4 1/2" diameter x 20 inch long filter cartridges.
