Pentek 158133 5 x 2.5 Filter Housing Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today we’re looking at the Pentek 158133.
This is an industry standard size 5 by 2 ½ filter housing. Now, when I say 5 by 2 1/2, 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. You see, there are literally dozens of types and styles of cartridges, manufactured this size to fit into this filter housing, and they’re all approximately 5 inches long by 2 ½ inches in diameter, give or take a quarter or three eighths of an inch.
Now, depending on where you purchase the 158133, 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 ¼ inch female pipe thread inlet/outlet size and a clear sump so that you can visually inspect your filter cartridge. This unit does not have an integrated pressure release valve. For that you need a different filter housing.
Now, filter housings like this are typically used in marine and RV applications, or really any situation that requires the small form factor. You see, these filter cartridges are simply too small to deliver the appropriate flow necessary for, say for example, a whole house application. It’s just too small for that. But as a drinking water system under your kitchen sink, or under your bathroom sink, or in your boat or your RV, it’s the perfect size.
Again, this is the Pentek 158133, and I’m your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com.
Thanks for watching.
