O Ring 20″ Big Blue

O-rings are essential for the proper functioning of 20″ Big Blue filtration systems, ensuring a watertight seal and maintaining system integrity.

Regular maintenance and correct installation of O-rings are critical to ensuring the longevity and efficiency of your water filtration system.

By choosing high-quality O-rings and adhering to proper maintenance practices, you can ensure reliable and effective water filtration for both residential and commercial applications.

An O-ring for a 20" Big Blue filtration system is a crucial component that ensures a watertight seal between the filter housing and its cap. This seal prevents leaks and maintains the system's pressure integrity, which is essential for effective water filtration.

Proper sealing ensures all water passes through the filter media, enhancing filtration efficiency. Prevents leaks that could cause water damage or system failures, prolonging the life of the filtration system.


  • Preparation: Clean the groove in the filter housing where the O-ring will sit to remove any debris or old lubricant.
  • Lubrication: Apply a thin layer of food-grade silicone grease to the O-ring. This helps ensure a snug fit and prevents the O-ring from twisting or pinching.
  • Placement: Place the O-ring into the groove, ensuring it is seated evenly without any twists. A twisted or misaligned O-ring can lead to leaks.


  • Inspection: Check the O-ring each time you change the filter cartridge for signs of wear, cracks, or deformation. Replace if necessary.
  • Cleaning: During filter changes, clean the O-ring and the groove to remove any build-up of dirt or contaminants.
  • Storage: Store spare O-rings in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and chemicals to prevent degradation.
