Default Fuel Line Water capture device

Hi

I was talking to a fitter at work he mentioned some fuel line inline device that acts like a bowl to capture water in fuel. After recent and ongoing experience thought I'd look into it.

Anyone use one or know what the device is?

Thanks

PJ

Here´s mine:








In Chile the dealer fits them before delivery because of diesel quality. You can see they make a by pass to the fuel line before going into the filter to fit the "pre-filter" that traps particles and water (left on the engine the filter, to the right behind the air filter box you can see the fuel pre-filter) The element is changed every 10.000 kms and it has a valve to drain the water.

Question - 2014 nw & drained the fuel from the filter to check if any water or impurities.. what a dredfull process... with the second battery it was impossible to open the filter drain.. I had to unbolt the filter to open the wing nut which changes orientation for the drain... Also found the primer pump to be ordinary.. what do other feel about this... I do want to install a water trap... have had a bad experience out west in the previous car... so it happens.

I installed the Donaldson P903316 kit in mine, less than $120.00 and comes with a spare filter. Filters down to 3 Microns and I have it installed as a pre-filter before the factory one.
