Big Bubba Housings & Cartridges

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 have two outlets on opposite sides to allow more flexibility with piping configurations. Filters may be installed inline or piping may come from the same direction. Coupled with proprietary pleated activated carbon cartridge water is conserved, because back washing is not required, making them 100% efficient.

  • Swing-bolt lid closure is easy, safe & secure.
  • Pressure release for safety.
  • Cartridge “lock” adapter to hold cartridge in place.
  • Double o-rings on cartridges for superior sealing.
  • Two outlets to allow piping from the same direction.


  • Industrial applications for chemical compatibility.
  • Pre-filtration for reverse osmosis.
  • Community water systems for cyst reduction.
  • Sea water filtration (for non corrosion).
  • Whole house filtration for chlorine, taste, odor and sediment reduction.

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. 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.

Pleated filter cartridges provide increased surface area and longer life. Lower pressure drop is another significant advantage of using pleated cartridges, which allows for increased flow rates and the use of smaller filter housings to reduce capital equipment costs. Ideal for more critical applications, offering greater efficiency, more surface area for greater throughput and reduced cost.Big Bubba Pleated Cartridge
