Spectra Watermakers 5" Sea Water Strainer FT-STN-5
Spectra Watermakers 5" Sea Strainer is used to filter out large sediment from the inlet sea water. It is vital to have this filter before the low pressure feed pump in your watermaker system. Large particulates such as seaweed can be drawn into your watermaker and cause premature failure of the feed pump.
The strainer itself is made of 316 Stainless Steel mesh and is the only screen that should be used in your watermaker. Lower quality screens can rust and damage your watermaker. If you are looking for a replacement screen, you can find that here. We also provide replacement gaskets here.
Both the bowl and strainer top are made of lightweight plastic that does not easily corrode. Spectra uses the 5" strainer on most of their small watermakers. The strainer housing has 3/4" female npt connection ports in the top piece.
