Pentek 158002 5 x 2.5 Filter Housing Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today we’re looking at the Pentek 158002.
This is an industry standard size 5 by 2 ½ filter housing. Now, when I say 5 by 2 ½, I’m not really referring to the dimensions of the filter housing itself, but rather to the filter cartridges that go inside of the filter housing. You see, there are dozens of types and styles of cartridges that are this size designed to fit in this filter housing. And they’re all approximately 5 inches long by 2 ½ inches in diameter, give or take a quarter to three eighths of an inch.
Now, depending on where you purchase the 158002, you may also need to purchase separately a mounting bracket, a spanner wrench to remove the sump when changing filter cartridges, and a spare O-ring. The unit comes with an O-ring, but having a spare on the shelf is a really good idea.
The entire unit is manufactured from 100% BPA free polypropylene and features 3/8 inch female pipe thread inlet/ outlet size, and an integrated pressure release valve.
Now, filter housings like this are typically used in marine and RV applications or really any situation that requires this small form factor. Any situation where the demand for water is low, because, you see, these filter elements do not have enough surface area to provide appropriate flow, say for example a whole house application. It’s just too small. But as a dedicated drinking water system under your kitchen sink or under your bathroom sink, or in your RV or your boat, it’s the perfect size for that application.
Again, this is the Pentek 158002, and I’m your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com.
Thanks for watching.
