Big Bubba Filters
Watts has developed a large, rugged cartridge-style filter housing in the Big Bubba Filter system. The Big Bubba Filter Housing is glass-reinforced polypropylene designed to not chip, rust, or dent due to all wetted surfaces are non-metallic. This makes the Big Bubba perfect for when chemical compatibility is important or even for sea water applications.
The Big Bubba Filter system is also designed for high pressure and high flow applications. Depending on the filters uses, it can support from 20 gallons per minute all the way up to 150 gallons per minute. Due to the polypropylene case and the stainless steel clamps and eyebolts that connect the cap can withstand psi pressure bursts up to 300 psi for short durations. It's normal working service capacity is up to 125 psi exceeding the 80 psi of most Big Blue style housings.
Big Bubba systems use 2" pipe fittings and large diameter center tubes for their filter cartridges to minimize pressure drops. The system allows for simple and inexpensive operation due to no backwashing being needed, no electric control valve or electrical connection; and can replace cartridges by removing the swing bolts and lid then rotating the cartridge and pull up.
The Big Bubba Filter system is great for a wide variety of applications such as: commercial filtration, industrial filtration, pre-filtration for RO equipment, sea water applications, farm uses, and whole home filtration.
