Pentek 158110 5 x 2.5 Filter Housing Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today we’re looking at the Penkek 158110.
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 fit inside of this filter housing. There are literally dozens of types and styles of filter cartridges designed this size to fit inside of 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 158110, 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.
Now, the entire unit is manufactured from 100% BPA free polypropylene and features a 3/8 inch female pipe thread inlet/outlet size, an integrated pressure release valve, and a clear sump; which allows for visual inspection of the filter element.
And these filter cartridge housings are typically used in RV and marine applications, or really any situation that requires this small form factor. Any situation that has a low flow demand, because these filters simply do not have enough surface area to deliver the appropriate volume and pressure of water, say for example, a whole house application. It’s just not going to work there; but under your bathroom sink, under your kitchen sink if you don’t have room for a larger 10 by 2 ½ housing, or of course, in your RV or your boat.
Again, this is the Pentek 158110, and I’m your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com.
Thanks for watching.
