  • Pentek EPM-5C water filters are an ideal choice for a wide range of residential, food service, commercial and industrial applications. They also make excellent polishing filters or pre-filters in applications requiring fine filtration and high capacity.
  • NOTE: When greater chlorine taste & odor reduction is needed, use the Pentek CBC-5 carbon water filter.
  • NOTE: Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system.
  • NOTE: Pentek EPM-5C water filter cartridges will contain a very small amount of carbon fines (very fine black powder) and a new cartridge after installation should be flushed with sufficient water to remove all traces of the fines from your water system before using the water.
