Pentek CBC-5 Carbon Filter Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today weíre looking at the Pentek CBC-5.
This is an industry standard size cartridge, approximately 5 inches long by 2 Ĺ inches in diameter, which means itís going to fit into a vast array of industry standard size filter housings, like for example, the popular 158110 that you see here.
Now, this filter cartridge is a 0.5 micron carbon block. Pentek internal testing certifies the filter to reduce 99.5% of microbial cysts like cryptosporidium and giardia. And, of course, the carbon block removes chlorine taste and odor and a variety of inorganic and organic chemicals.
Now, filter life is going to be extended slightly because Pentek has been smart, and wrapped the entire filter in what they call Endurawrap. Itís a polyolefin bi-laminate that simply serves as a pre-filter to capture large particles so that those donít get imbedded in the carbon block and cause it to clog before the carbon is truly exhausted.
Now, filter life is about 3,000 gallons for chlorine taste and odor reduction, but if you have a heavy load of sediment youíll probably see that number go down just slightly.
Again, this is the Pentek CBC-5, and Iím your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com.
