Watts BBH-150 Big-Bubba Non-metallic Filter Housing for Jumbo Cartridges Features:
The Big-Bubba filter housings are made of rugged glass-reinforced polypropylene so they will not chip, rust, or dent. And because all wetted surfaces are non-metallic, they are ideal when chemical compatibility is an issue and for sea water applications.
Big-Bubba filters are an economical replacement for stainless steel filtration equipment because of their non-metallic construction and today\'s high cost of stainless steel. Big-Bubba filter have two outlets on opposite sides to allow more flexibility with piping configurations. Filter may be installed inline or piping may come from the same direction. A plug is provided for the outlet, if not used.
Big Bubba is Big
Big Bubba is very big as cartridge-style water filters go. It has 2\" inlet and outlet ports and uses specially made cartridges with large diameter centers to ensure as little flow restriction as possible. It can support a flow rate of up to 150 gallons per minute with a pleated sediment cartridge, and even the carbon cartridge is designed for service flow peaks of up to twenty gallons per minute.
Big Bubba is Tough
Big Bubba\'s glass reinforced polypropylene case, together with the stainless steel clamps and eyebolts that connect the cap, can withstand a 300 psi burst pressure. Big Bubba has a working service capacity of up to 125 psi (as compared with 80 psi for most \"Big Blue\" style housings). Its materials are so corrosion-resistant that it can be used in sea water applications.
Big Bubba is Simple
Big Bubba comes in one style only, with no frills. It has a top-mounted pressure gauge to monitor the inner water pressure, and the installer can add a second gauge on the outlet side to provide a pressure-differential monitor as an indicator of cartridge condition. There are no electronic controls and no electrical connection is needed.
Installation is very simple. Big Bubba has 2\" slip inlet and outlet ports. It is provided with 3 ports so that it can be installed as a straight-through inline or in a reverse flow (horseshoe) design. (A cap is provided for the unused port.) Big Bubba is designed so that multiple units can be easily installed in parallel (side by side) or in series.
Maintenance is also very simple. Big Bubba cartridges are provided with a handle and they lock in place in the housing with a turn of the wrist. No tools are needed. The lid removes with easy-to-use stainless steel swing bolts. Again, no tools are needed.
Big Bubba is Versatile
Big Bubba can serve as a very high flow sediment filter or a high volume whole house filter for residential dechlorination. It can be installed as a single unit, in tandem to provide an exceptionally high-flow system, or in series, to offer varying levels of filtration.
Big Bubba can provide more than 150,000 gallons of whole house chlorine removal on a single cartridge, or it can be used as a whole house residential sediment filter where high flow rates are needed. It can be an economical commercial or industrial filter, serve as a prefilter for large reverse osmosis units, or be used in seawater applications where a corrosion-proof housing is necessary. There are many industrial, commercial, and residential applications.

Big Bubba as a Whole House Chlorine and Chemical Reduction Filter for City Water
The advanced-design pleated powdered activated carbon filter for Big Bubba has an amazing 41.5 square feet of filtering surface. As compared with carbon block filters, the pleated design provides virtually unrestricted flow and far greater resistance to premature clogging. The filter has a theoretical dechlorination capacity of about 140,000 gallons of ordinary city tap water at 12 gallons per minute. The Big Bubba cartridge is ideal for long term chlorine removal and aesthetic improvement of city tap water.
Big Bubba as a Sediment Filter
Big Bubba is available with 10 sediment removal cartridges to choose from. The free-flowing , high volume pleated cartridges come in six sizes, from a very tight one micron absolute to to a free flowing 150 micron mesh cartridge. Five, 20, 50, and 150 micron versions of the pleated cartridges are cleanable and reusable.
