The Zoeller “WW” residential filter gives your septic system protection like no other. Zoeller Company’s patented design keeps your lateral fields safe with twice the filtration area of most residential filters. All of the filtration area is in the effluent, making the filter 100% effective. The best feature of the “WW” filter is that the sleeve section of the filter remains in the outlet tee when the main filter is removed for servicing. This will guarantee no solids larger than 1/16″ reaches the lateral fields. The Zoeller “WW” filter is ultimate protection.

Easy to install or retrofit:

The Zoeller Septic System Filter fits inside any 4″ sanitary tee. Slide the filter cartridge into the filter sleeve. Lock the cartridge and sleeve together by holding the sleeve stationary and rotating the cartridge clockwise. Slide the assembled cartridge and sleeve into the sanitary tee at the tank’s outlet. Ensure the sleeve latch is pointing towards the outlet of the septic tank before filter placement into the tee. The drain field is now protected from solids greater than 1/16″


Allows only the clearest effluent from leaving the tank: Located in the sanitary tee, this filter extends beneath the scum layer, above the sludge layer, and withdraws effluent from the clear-water zone of the tank.


Lowers maintenance costs:

The filter can be serviced on a periodic basis by the homeowner to maintain peak performance. Under normal circumstances, the filter only requires servicing when the septic tank is pumped. A Zoeller Riser & Lid will make septic tank and filter maintenance an easy task.


Allows the homeowner to monitor the condition of the tank:

During routine maintenance, the tank should be inspected to be sure unnecessary particulate is not getting into your tank (i.e. fruit peelings, cigarette filters, feminine hygiene materials, etc.). Check your local plumbing codes to determine how often your tank should be pumped. If sludge buildup becomes apparent on the bottom of your tank, then a more frequent pumping interval is suggested.


Also available with sanitary tee and filter complete – 170-0144.
