10" x 4.5" Refillable Filter ECC-10BB-WF Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today we’re looking at the ECC-10BB-WF. This is an industry standard size cartridge, approximately 10 inches long by 4 ½ inches in diameter, which means it’s going to fit into a vast selection of industry standard size filter housings, like for example, the popular Pentek HD-950 that you see here. Now, the ECC-10BB-WF is an empty, refillable cartridge. Yeah, you heard me right; it’s empty, designed to receive whatever filter media your little heart desires to put inside of it; literally anything. You could put polyphosphate for scale reduction, hexametaphosphate for the same purpose, calcium carbonate for reduction of PH levels to reduce an acid water problem, you could install granular activated carbon, KDF55 or 85 or a combination of that and granular activated carbon, ion exchange resin, water softening resin; literally any bulk media that’s available, you can fit inside of this cartridge to create your own specialty cartridge. Now, the only thing that I want to warn you about is this is an axial flow design, which means the water enters these slots at the bottom, rises through the entire depth of the media, then reenters the center column and exits at the top. This axial flow process typically creates a fair amount of pressure loss. You probably won’t have that problem if you’re using calcium carbonate, or maybe not with polyphosphate either, but with granular activated carbon, with KDF, or ion exchange resins that are typically going to be packed very densely in here, you may experience pressure loss and flow restriction that you won’t like. The way to resolve that is to install two filter housings in a parallel configuration, not in series, but in parallel. That will then cut the flow restriction and pressure loss in half, making it a workable situation. So just be aware of that. But, this is an empty, refillable cartridge great for creating whatever filter media combination you want. Again, it is the ECC-10BB-WF, and I’m your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com. Here’s to safe drinking water you can trust.
