American Plumber W20CLHD Pleated Cellulose Sediment Filter Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Tony the Filter Doctor here. Today we’re looking at the American Plumber W20CLHD. This is an industry standard size cartridge, approximately 10 inches in length and 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 HD950 and many more. Now, this unit is a 20 micron, pleated cellulose sediment filter, and it’s going to capture sediment just slightly smaller than a speck of milled flour. Now, in many cases a 20 micron filter is perfect as a stand-alone filter, but it can also serve as a pre-filter or a middle filter in a multi-stage system. It’s really going to depend on the type and size of your unique sediment. Now because this filter is manufactured from cellulose media it is not appropriate for untreated water, because microorganisms can live and grow on this media. So it should only be used on water that’s chlorinated, ozonated, uv’ed or that you’re otherwise confident does not have microorganisms living and growing in it. Filter life is estimated at approximately 24,000 gallons, but that’s going to depend a lot on your unique circumstances. If you have a heavy load of sediment or you use a great deal of water, you will certainly go through cartridges faster than someone that doesn’t have either of those conditions. Again, this is the American Plumber W20CLHD, a 20 micron, pleated cellulose sediment filter, and I’m your host Tony the Filter Doctor. Thanks for watching.
