Pentek EP-5 Carbon Filter Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today we’re looking at the Pentek EP-5. This is an industry standard size cartridge approximately 5 inches long by 2 ½ inches in diameter, which means it’s going to fit into a vast array of industry standard size filter housings, like for example, the popular 158110 that you see here. Now, the EP-5 is a 5 micron carbon block. Five microns is approximately five times smaller than a speck of milled flour, so it’s going to capture some very fine sediment, and of course the carbon block is going to reduce chlorine taste and odor as well as capture a variety or organic and inorganic chemicals. The filter is manufactured from 100% FDA approved materials, which means it’s not only appropriate for residential applications, but also for food service and commercial situations. Now, Pentek has been really smart, and they’ve wrapped the entire outer surface with what they call Endurawrap. It’s a polyolefin bi-laminate designed to capture large particles so that those particles will not imbed themselves in the carbon block and cause it to become clogged before the carbon is truly exhausted. Filter life for the EP-5 is approximately 1,500 gallons for chlorine taste and odor reduction. Again, this is the Pentek EP-5, and I’m your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com. Thanks for watching.
