Sherwood Sea Water Strainers are designed to deliver full flow of liquid while providing effective filtration of foreign matter in your supply line! Cleaning is accomplished easily without removing strainer from lines. Simply unscrew lower bowl from cap and lift out screen. Flush sediment from mesh with water and replace screen by first fitting to flange cap. Align gasket to assure proper seal before tightening bowl. Replace gasket if it is cut or showing excessive wear. Turning bowl hand tight provides sufficient seal against cap. Clean strainers regularly for best system performance. Hose barb inlets, necessary for installation, are also in stock!
