1" ORIGINAL PVC SLOTTED INLET FILTER FOR SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE
This is an original slotted PVC filter approximately 1"x 8-12" long with a 1" SCH 80 PVC hose barb. This original slotted PVC filter is suitable for low pressure pumps with a 1/2" suction port such as the 1/2" air diaphragm pump or 1/2" ported 12-volt pump such as a Delavan 5850 or Fat boy and ever flow models with a 1/2"" inlet. This filter is finely slotted but allows for tremendous flow. Beware of filters that offer a nylon screen or low-grade stainless-steel screen over the PVC. The nylon and ss screen will break down quickly and end up sucked into the pump.
Installed with an elbow for top draw from tank and to allow user to fit the slotted filter end into the bung opening of a 55-gallon drum.
You must fabricate and provide the PVC sleeve to slip over hose to keep filter at bottom of tank out of 1 1/2" SCH 40 PVC.
Do not hard pipe plumb this filter into the tank. You must be able to remove the slotted filter to clean the debris and salts from the surfaces.
***Rex, the Pump Guru, invented this slotted filter for use with sodium hypochlorite. ***
The general rule of thumb when plumbing a pump is as follows:
Double the hose inner diameter in comparison to the pump inlet and always use non-collapsible hose.
For example, the Delavan 5850-101e has a 1/2" FNPT (female national pipe thread) port on the suction side of the pump. We recommend that you choose a 1" id hose with a 1/2" crimped on hose barb.
