Pentek 158642 10 x 2.5 Filter Housing Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today we’re looking at the Pentek 158642.
This is an industry standard size 10 by 2 ˝ filter housing. Now, when I say 10 by 2 ˝, I’m not referring to the dimensions of the filter housing itself, but rather to the filter cartridges that go inside of this filter housing. You see, this is an extremely popular size category. There are literally hundreds of types and styles of filters that will fit into this filter housing, and they’re all approximately 10 inches long by 2 ˝ inches in diameter, give or take a quarter to three eighths of an inch.
Now, the 158642 features an integrated mounting bracket, an integrated pressure release button, and 3/8 inch female pipe thread inlet/outlet size, and the entire unit is manufactured from 100% BPA free polypropylene.
Now, a filter housing like this is typically used as a dedicated drinking water filter underneath the kitchen sink, or to a specific application. Because of the 3/8 inch female pipe thread inlet/outlet size and because of the restricting nature of the size of these small filters, it is not appropriate for a whole house application where there’s more than one bathroom. If your home has two bathrooms, you need to move up to the 20 by 2 ˝ or 20 by 4 ˝ size for whole house filtration.
Having said that, you could use this to filter the water for a single bathroom, to just the laundryroom, to the kitchen tap and the dishwasher for example. And there are a huge array of applications because the selection of cartridges is so vast.
Again, this is the Pentek 158642, and I’m your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com.
Thanks for watching.
