Pentek C1 Carbon Impregnated Sediment Filter Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today we’re looking at the Pentek C1. This is an industry standard size cartridge, approximately 10 inches long by 2 ½ inches in diameter, which means it’s going to fit into a vast array of industry standard size filter housings, like for example, the popular Pentek 158642 that you see here. Now, the C1 is a 5 micron, carbon impregnated cellulose filter. It is the perfect dual purpose cartridge for someone with a sediment problem and a minor taste and odor issue. I say minor, because there isn’t a great deal of carbon in this filter, so if you’ve got a really nasty taste and odor issue, you need to look elsewhere to a different filter. But for those of you with a sediment problem, and you just want the water to taste a little bit better, just smell a little bit better, this is a great choice. Now, because it’s manufactured from cellulose media, it’s only appropriate for treated water sources; so water that’s chlorinated, ozonated, uv’ed or that you’re otherwise confident does not have microorganisms living and growing in it because those microorganisms can live and grow on this filter cartridge, and obviously that would be bad. Filter life for the C1 is approximately 2,500 gallons for chlorine taste and odor. Again, this is the Pentek C1, the carbon impregnated cellulose filter, and I’m your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com. Thanks for watching.
