KX Matrikx 32-425-125-20 +CTO/2 Carbon Block Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Tony the Filter Doctor here. Today we’re looking at the KX Matrikx 32-425-125-20. It’s better known as the +CTO/2. Now, the +CTO/2 is an industry standard size cartridge, approximately 20 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 one that you see here. Now, the +CTO/2 is a 5 micron carbon block manufactured by KX Matrikx in the good old USA, and this is their no frills version. This does not have any special certifications for really nasty contaminants. It’s just a basic 5 micron carbon block designed for chlorine taste and odor reduction and generally making the water more palatable. If you’ve got a VOC problem or a turbidity problem or microbial cysts then you need to look to some of the other KX Matrikx carbon blocks that are available. The +CTO/2 is very popular in industrial and commercial reverse osmosis systems as the polishing filter just before the water hits the reverse osmosis membrane. It’s great for removing the chlorine that would otherwise be harmful to those membranes. Now, filter life is approximately 26,000 gallons for chlorine taste and odor, but beware, it is 5 microns so it’s a very tight filter, if you have a sediment issue, you need to pre-filter before the water gets here or you could potentially clog this filter long before the carbon is truly exhausted. And that would be a waste of really good carbon. So make sure you have some kind of pre-filtration. Again, this is the KX Matrikx 32-425-125-20, better known as the +CTO/2, their no frills 5 micron carbon block. I’m your host Tony the Filter Doctor. Thanks for watching.
