Pentek CBR2-10 Carbon Filter Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today weíre looking at the Pentek CBR2-10.
This cartridge is very similar to the CBR2-10R. The difference being this one does not have the flow restrictor, so youíll get slightly better flow through this cartridge but also less contaminant removal.
The CBR2-10 is an industry standard size cartridge approximately 10 inches long by 2 Ĺ inches in diameter. It is a 0.5 micron, very dense carbon block.
Pentekís internal testing has proven that this cartridge will reduce MTBEís; thatís methyl tertiary butyl ether, a nasty by product of fuel production, VOCís, which are volatile organic compounds, and also lead. All of these are nasties that you donít want in your drinking water.
Now to increase the filter life of this cartridge, Pentek has wrapped this cartridge in this white outer wrap that they call Endurawrap. Itís a polyolefin bi-laminate that simply captures sediment and stops it from getting in and clogging the carbon before itís truly exhausted.
Now understanding your filter life with the CBR2-10 is a little difficult because it depends on what youíre trying to remove from the water. If youíre simply removing chlorine then the filterís good for about 20,000 gallons. But if youíre removing lead the filter life goes down dramatically to a mere 2,000 gallons. And if youíre removing VOCís and MTBEís then you need to change the cartridge approximately every 500 gallons. So change your filter based on whatever you are trying to remove from your water.
Again, this is the Pentek CBR2-10, and Iím your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com.
