10 Inch x 4.5 Inch Big Blue Clear Dual Whole House Water Filter - Carbon Filter, Sediment Filter, 2 Ball Valves, 2 Gauges and a Wrench
This dual Big Blue 10" x 4.5" clear whole house water filter has 1 inch threaded inlet and outlet ports with two ball valves to provide ease of filter replacement. This system also has 2 pressure gauges for comparison of incoming psi vs. out-going psi for a reliable determination of proper maintenance of the filters. These clear housings are suitable for use with Big Blue (4 1/2 by 10 inch filters). One carbon filter and one sediment filter are included in this package.
The micron rating for these filters is your choice - click on the Sediment and Carbon Micron options above and make your selection. Carbon Filter end cap color will vary by micron rating.
*******This Product has been******* *****customized/built in the USA*****
This Package includes:
> Two (2) 10 Inch x 4.5 inch Clear Filter Housings
> This is a high impact/reinforced housing
> Unit has a pressure release button
> One inch inlet and outlet ports
> ** Two (2) - one (1) inch ball valves
> One (1) 10 inch by 4 1/2 inch sediment filter
> One (1) 10 inch by 4 1/2 inch carbon filters
> * Two pressure gauges
> One (1) mounting bracket
> One (1) filter wrench
*Two (2) pressure gauges. The first pressure gauge will measure the psi of the incoming water (from the city or your well system). The second gauge will provide a reading of the psi of the water leaving the filter system. The change in the psi on the second gauge will provide you notice when the filters need to be replaced.
**Two (2) reinforced heavy duty PVC ball valves (maintenance free and corrosion free) - to be used on both the inlet and the outlet of a whole house water unit. On the inlet side it can be used to shut off the incoming water supply. On the outlet side of the whole house water filter unit it can be used to shut off the back flow of water from the water pipes located at a higher level and thereby avoid a water spill when changing the filter elements. Ball valves are shipped un-installed to avoid unit damage during shipment.
10 Inch x 4.5 Inch Clear Housing
Top quality, heavy duty construction clear housing with one inch inlet and outlet ports. The unit has a pressure release button for ease of filter replacement. As noted above, the ball valve will provide assistance when replacing the filter. Clear housings will permit you to observe the filters and thereby allow you to monitor the depletion of the filters. This will take the guess work out of when to replace your filters.

This 10 inch x 4.5 inch sediment filter is made of 100% high purity polypropylene, surfactant free, binder free and adhesive free. This sediment has a special design to trap particulates. Four layers, with outside-in flow and step-by-step micron rating that effectively retains particles and extends the filter life with a much lower pressure drop. Sediment filters are in compliance with FDA requirements and they are NSF Standard 42 certified. Specifications; One (1), five (5), ten (10) or twenty five (25) micron rating, up to 8 gallon flow rate, 10" length and 4 1/2 OD"
They have great particle holding capacity and are being used in a variety of applications such as pre-filters for reverse osmosis systems, pre-filters for water filtration units, aquarium pre-filters and being used as sediment collectors for whole house systems.

Performance Tested - NSF and FDA certified
The carbon block filters are manufactured with high purity Coconut Shell activated carbon with extruded activated carbon block construction. They do not release carbon fines and they are FDA compliant and they are NSF Standard 42 certified. These solid carbon block filters have combined the adsorption capability of carbon, with the ability of a solid block material to selectively strain out particles from the water that is being forced through the filter. Specifications; one (1), five (5), or ten (10) micron rating, 10" length and 4 1/2 OD"
Activated carbon has an electro-positive charge added which results in this type of carbon attracting more chemicals and impurities. As the water passes through the positively charged carbon, the contaminants with their negative ions, are attracted to the carbon granules and thus extracted from the water.
The block of carbon strains out sediment, dirt, bacteria, microscopic worms, algae, asbestos and cryptosporidium. With just water pressure, this compacted solid carbon block is designed to filter sub micron size particles. This microstraining of the water will provide clean and clear drinking water.
Activated carbon bonds to thousands of known chemicals. As water is forced through this solid block of carbon, it is forced to slow its flow speed and thereby increase the contact time with the carbon. This slowing of the flow allows the carbon bonding to take place and remove chemical pollutants like toxins, THM's, chlorine, pesticides, bad tastes, odors, etc.
Solid block carbon filters are very uniform and do not channel or bypass as conventional granular activated carbon (GAC) filters are know to do.
Because of the density of the solid block carbon filters, there is no room for bacteria to grow, so these filters do not become an incubator for bacteria as GAC filter are known to be.
These carbon block filters will fit most types of 10" x 4.5" filter housings on the market today and as noted previously, they will fit into the housings on nearly all water filtration and reverse osmosis systems. CTO carbon block filters preform well in both commercial and residential applications and they are the most widely used carbon filters on the market today.
