- Pentek / Ametek CGAC-10 Water Filter:
- The Pentek CGAC-10 Granular Activated Carbon Water Filter Cartridge reduces chloramine.
- The Pentek CGAC-10 replacement filter has effective chlorine taste & odor and chloramine taste & odor reduction (based on manufacturer's internal testing).
- Designed for maximum adsorption
- The Pentek CGAC-10 has a post-filter to reduce carbon fines from the granular activated carbon.
- The Pentek / Ametek CGAC-10 water filter cartridge features a unique advanced carbon media that is much more effective than standard granular carbons for reduction of chloramine taste & odor.
- The construction of the Pentek CGAC-10 water filter cartridge allows water to enter at one end and pass through the entire length of the carbon bed before exiting the other end of the cartridge. An internal expansion pad minimizes channeling or bypass. This design allows for maximum contact between the water and carbon, ensuring maximum adsorption.
- Before the water exits the Pentek CGAC-10 water filter cartridge, a 20-micron post filter helps reduce carbon fines and other suspended particles from the filtered water. The post-filter is permanently fastened to an innovative support basket ensuring that it is firmly secured and eliminating any potential for bypass.
- NOTE: Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system.
- NOTE: A drinking water cartridge may contain carbon fines (very fine black powder). After installation and before using the water, flush the cartridge for 5 minutes to remove fines. It is recommended that you run the tap for 20 seconds prior to using the water for drinking or cooking purposes.
