How can I find the pipe size of my Rusco filter system?

The Rusco filter system comes in 3/4", 1", 1.5", and 2" pipe sizes. The pipe size is needed to determine which replacement filter screen you need. The pipe size number is embossed on the side of the filter body (top part of the filter) next to the "In" and "Out" arrows.

Another way to determine the pipe size is to measure the length of the filter screen to determine the filter size:
5-1/8" Filter Screen Length = 3/4" or 1" Pipe Size
8-1/8" Filter Screen Length = 1-1/2" Pipe Size
10" Filter Screen Length = 2" Pipe Size

For 1-1/2" & 2" Pipe Size: Spin-Down Filter Screens have a long spool and Sediment Trapper Filter Screens have a short spool with a center stem.
