This 3M Aqua Pure compatible water filter has up to 2x the filter life compared to the Aqua Pure AP810-2 water filter.

It is easily installed and fits just like the Aquapure original (and performs better too)! Fits all standard large diameter (4.5 inch) 20″ water filter housings including the Aqua Pure AP802.

BG-20SED Features and Benefits:

  • High dirt holding capacity
  • Up to twice the filter life compared to the 3M Aqua Pure AP810-2 (and over 10 times more life than some other filters on the market!)
  • The grooved design increases surface area, extends the water filter cartridge life, and increases water filtration efficiency
  • Deep ridges are industrial grade construction that withstand stressful conditions
  • The rigid construction helps to eliminate sediment “unloading” that often happens due to variations in water pressure
  • Large-diameter (4.5″), 5 micron sediment filter that is an effective method for reducing turbidity in water
  • Removes sediment, dirt, rust, and other particulate matter as small as 5 microns that are commonly found in drinking water
  • Ideal for light commercial applications, and large homes (2.5 baths)
  • Tested to NSF Standard 42. NSF International is a global, independent public health and safety organization. Standard 42 certifies the reduction of aesthetic and non-health related contaminants such as chlorine, taste, odor, and particulates that may be present in public or private drinking water
  • Provides a sufficient supply of purified water throughout the day with its impressive flow rate (40 gallons per minute)
  • We also offer this product with Siliphos corrosion and scale inhibitor product, see our BG-20SC water filter
