  • #10 VIH Standard Whole House Housing Tips:
  • For many applications, it makes sense to install two whole house housings. The first housing is for sediment reduction. The second housing is for the carbon filter to improve taste and odor and reduce additional contaminants. By installing the sediment filter first, the carbon filter will last longer because it does not get clogged with sediment. Since carbon filters are more expensive, it is better to have the sediment filter first that needs to be replaced more often.
  • If you have a lot of sediment in your water, you may want to consider three housings. The first two housings are for sediment reduction. The first housing contains a higher micron sediment filter and the second housing contains a lower micron sediment filter. The third housing is for the carbon taste and odor water filter. An example application is the first housing containing a P25 filter, the 2nd housing containing a P5 filter, and the 3rd housing containing a carbon filter such as the GAC-10.
  • Connecting two #10 Standard Housings:
  • Two #10 Standard housings can be connected with a pipe nipple or pipe union. There are several pipe nipples available that can be used to connect two #10 Standard Housings. See all combinations of pipe nipple options here.
  • NP-34 - Use this pipe nipple to connect two #10 Housings with 3/4" Inlet/Outlets

  • Pentek 150164 #10 VIH Whole House Replacement Water Filter Information:
  • The water filter cartridge is not included with the housing. This allows you to purchase the best water filter for your water supply.
  • The water filter cartridge life depends on the water filter cartridge purchased, the quality of your water, and the amount of water used. You will know when to change the filter cartridge when your water pressure drops.
  • Sediment water filters reduce dirt, sand, silt, sediment, rust particles, and scale particles. Choose from one of our sediment water filters at the 10" L x 2.5" W Standard Filter Page.
  • Drinking water filters produce healthier, better-tasting drinking water by reducing chlorine taste and odor and other contaminants. Choose from one of our carbon drinking water filters at the 10" L x 2.5" W Standard Filter Page.

  • Recommended Parts & Accessories:
  • Replacement OR-34 O-Rings. One o-ring is included with the housing purchase, but you should replace the o-ring periodically to prevent leaks.
  • Use silicone grease to lubricate the o-rings to prevent leaking.
