Culligan HF-360 10 x 2.5 Filter Housing Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today we’re looking at the Culligan HF-360.
This is an industry standard size 10 by 2 ½ filter housing. Now, when I say 10 by 2 ½, I’m not referring to the dimensions of the filter housing itself, but rather to the cartridges that go inside of the filter housings. You see, this is an extremely popular size category, and there are literally hundreds of types and styles of cartridges designed this size to fit into this size filter housing. And all of those cartridges are approximately 10 inches long by 2 ½ inches in diameter, give or take a quarter to three eighths of an inch, depending on the specific type of a cartridge we’re talking about.
Now, the HF-360 features a 100% BPA free polypropylene construction with a clear sump. Now, that clear sump is really handy for those of you with heavy sediment applications so you can visually inspect your filter element, and change it before you experience pressure loss.
It also has an integrated on/off valve, which is really handy for the non-plumber, because with that feature you do not need to concern yourself with installing an on/off valve either before or after the filter housing. You can rely on the integrated one. It also has the pressure release button, and it has ¾ inch female pipe thread inlet/outlet size.
Now, this filter housing is typically used in small whole house applications. And I say small; when I say that I mean homes with only one bathroom. If you have more than one bathroom, you really need to move up to the 20 by 2 ½ or 20 by 4 ½ size, because this small form factor is going to cause flow restriction and pressure loss that’s going to be really uncomfortable when you get in the shower and other applications are demanding water simultaneously.
So, if you have a small home, or you are single living alone, then you could use this as a whole house application. Otherwise, it’s great for a dedicated application; filter all of the water to one bathroom, filter all of the water to your laundry room, filter the kitchen tap and the dishwasher simultaneously. The variety of applications is enormous because there are so many cartridges to choose from that will fit inside of this filter housing.
Again, this is the Culligan HF-360, and I’m your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com.
