Pentek CC-10 Coconut Carbon Filter Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today weíre looking at the Pentek CC-10.
This filter is a 20 micron, coconut shell, granular activated carbon or GAC cartridge. It uses coconut carbon which is superior to bituminous carbon in at least two ways. One, it produces better tasting water, and it has higher contaminant removal rates. In fact Pentekís internal testing of the CC-10 revealed a 92% reduction of MTBEís; thatís methyl tertiary butyl ether, a nasty by-product of fuel production, and a 98% reduction of chloroform, a VOC.
Itís got a filter life of about 7,500 gallons if youíre only removing chlorine and sediment. But, if youíre removing those high level contaminants like VOCís then the filter life is significantly shorter, approximately 400 gallons.
Again, this is the Pentek CC-10, and Iím your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com.
