  • Pentek BBFS-222 Triple Housing Water Filter System:

  • The Pentek BBFS-222 multiple housing system includes wall-mounting bracket and hardware.
  • The BBFS-222 water filtration system has a pressure relief button to relieve housing pressure when replacing the water filter cartridges. Replacement pressure relief button kits can be purchased here.

  • Whole House housings extend the life of washing machines, water heaters, and other household appliances.
  • Ideal for homes, farms, private wells, restaurants, swimming pools, spas, and trickle irrigation.
  • Leaking is prevented by the dynamically sealing O-Ring. The O-Ring should be replaced periodically to prevent leaks.

  • BBFS-222 Filtration System Filter Cartridges:
  • The first two housings may be used for sediment reduction. The first housing can be used for a higher micron sediment filter and the second housing can be used for a lower micron sediment filter. The third housing can be used for the carbon taste and odor water filter. An example application is the first housing containing a DGD-7525-20 filter, the 2nd housing containing a DGD-5005-20 filter, and the 3rd housing containg a carbon filter such as the RFC-20BB to improve the taste and odor.
  • By installing the sediment filter first, the carbon filter will last longer because it does not get clogged with sediment. Since carbon filters are more expensive, it is better to have the sediment filter first that needs to be replaced more often.
