Hi all,
  "wye strainer" is the term that has worked really well searching in the USA. I have found a few of interest:


All of those seem very similar to me. All 1" bronze, I believe one of them may have a copper mesh instead of stainless. The grade of stainless seems to be 304 in all cases it's used.

A quick search in the UK found this stainless body version (plus stainless thread to barb fittings) but doubt it'd be of benefit for this use:

And also this bronze one. I believe this has a finer mesh grade even though it's also a "Watts" brand:

I'm curious what peoples thoughts on the best bet is? I have seen many cheap brass versions, I can't imagine that would end well.

Cheers,
 James.

Hello Duane,

Look at the following pictures
http://www.amazon.com/Internal-Thread-Brass-Strainer-Connector/dp/B00IFVKCT0/
and
http://www.amazon.com/Strainers-NPT-Female/dp/B005Q37YQ4

You will see inside the mesh that will catch the parts (propeller blade in our case).

So yes you can unscrew, get the screen and see if there is any, etc.

I have not ordered from any of the link I mentioned above, this is just for pictures reference.
I am flying to the US for business next week and will try to find locally.

Also they are easier to find under "Y Strainer".

Hope that helps.

If this is just a plumbing Y, what stops the
impeller pieces?  In the photo included with the article,
the water has a straight-thru run (the two hose barbs), the
screen/filter is in the off-line part of the Y (plumbers
would refer to it as a clean-out).

I thought there must be some kind of diverter
in it, but if it's just a plumbing Y, that's not the
case.
