Pentek ECP20-20BB Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today weíre looking at the Pentek ECP20-20BB.
This is an industry standard size cartridge approximately 20 inches long by 4 Ĺ inches in diameter, which means itís going to fit into many standard whole house filter housings, like for example, the 20BB, commonly known as the Big Blue.
Now the ECP20-20BB utilizes a resin impregnated, polyester fiber enhanced cellulose media to reduce sediment from your water. Itís rated at 20 microns, which is just slightly smaller than a speck of milled flour; making it a perfect choice as a pre-filter for a series of filters or perhaps as a pre-filter before your water softener.
Now because it is cellulose media, itís only appropriate for treated water. Water thatís been chlorinated, ozonated, uvíed, or that youíre otherwise confident does not have microorganisms living and growing in it, because those microorganisms could live and grow on this cellulose media. Obviously, that would be bad.
Now filter life on a type of cartridge like this is difficult, because itís going to depend on your unique circumstances. If you have a great deal of sediment and you use a lot of water, youíre going to change the cartridge more frequently than someone who doesnít have that much sediment or doesnít use that much water. So, itís going to depend on your unique circumstances.
Again, this is the Pentek ECP20-20BB, and Iím your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com.
