Aqua-Pure AP810 Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today we’re looking at the CUNO Aquapure AP810. This is an industry standard size cartridge approximately ten inches long by four and a half inches in diameter, which means it’s going to fit into a huge array of whole house filter housings. A couple of common ones would be the HD950 or the AP801. This is a 5 micron cartridge and it’s unique because it’s manufactured from a pressed cellulose. It’s not a pleated cartridge like you would expect with most other cellulose cartridges. And it has a gradient density which means it starts more porous on the outside and becomes increasingly dense to the center. That means you’re not just capturing sediment on the exterior surface area, but the sediment is imbedding itself throughout the depth of the media, giving you greater holding capacity and longer filter life. This cartridge is manufactured from FDA approved materials, so it’s a very high quality cartridge. Now unfortunately, because it is cellulose, it can not be used on untreated water sources. Cellulose is not bacteriostatic. It needs to be replaced approximately every three to four months depending on your water usage or the level of contaminants in your water. If you have lots of contaminants you’ll probably change it more often or if you use a lot of water you may change it more frequently than that. But average water, average usage, approximately three to four months. Again, this is the CUNO Aquapure AP810, and I’m your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com. Thanks for watching.
