Pentek C8 Carbon Impregnated Sediment Filter Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today we’re looking at the Pentek C8. 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 C8 is a 1 micron, carbon impregnated cellulose. One micron is extremely small so you should definitely pre-filter before this filter if you have large sediment particles. Otherwise, it’s a perfect choice for those of you dealing with extremely fine sediment. Now, because it is manufactured from cellulose, it’s only appropriate for treated water sources; water that’s chlorinated, uv’ed, ozonated 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 media and obviously that would be really bad. Filter life for the C8 is approximately 5,000 gallons for chlorine taste and odor, but again, be sure that you’re pre-filtering before this or the filter will clog long before the carbon is truly exhausted. Again, this is the Pentek C8, a 1 micron, carbon impregnated, cellulose filter, and I’m your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com. Thanks for watching.
