Viqua Premium AWP High Flow Series 3-Piece Housings and Accessories

Viqua AWP 3-Piece Housings

Made in Italy, the Viqua AWP High Flow Series 3-Piece housings are 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.

We offer 2 configurations of the AWP 3-Piece Housing: "standard" and "valve-in-head." The valve in head design allows you to turn the water off or engage water bypass while you are changing filters by turning a valve built-in to the top of the housing. This eliminates the need to plumb in shut-off valves before and after the housing, saving installation time and cost. Both configurations are available in 2 sizes, 10" and 20", both of which feature a 1" inlet and outlet.
