Pentek FloPlus-10 Fiberdyne Carbon Filter Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today weíre looking at the Pentek FloPlus-10.
This is an industry standard size cartridge, approximately 10 inches long by 2 Ĺ inches in diameter, which means itís going to fit into a vast array of industry standard size filter housings, like for example, the popular Pentek 158642 that you see here.
Now, the FloPlus-10 is a 0.5 micron, Fiberdyne carbon filter. Fiberdyne is Pentekís latest technology that allows for denser porosity without sacrificing flow rate and pressure loss. You see, this filter has the equivalent flow rate of a 10 micron carbon block. Thatís a big deal, because typically a 0.5 micron carbon filter will have such high pressure loss and flow restriction, you simply canít use it a whole house situation. But you can use the FloPlus-10 in whole house applications.
Just be sure to pre-filter for sediment before this filter. You see, itís so tight, it will certainly capture any sediment in your water, and that will clog the structure and kill the filter before the carbon is truly exhausted.
Now, the FloPlus-10 is NSF Standard 53 certified, which mean it reduces 99.95% of microbial cysts like cryptosporidium and giardia. And, of course, the carbon removes chlorine taste and odor and a long list of organic and inorganic chemicals.
Assuming you use the pre-filter to capture sediment before this filter; filter life is approximately 10,000 gallons for chlorine taste and odor.
Again, this is the Pentek FloPlus-10, and Iím your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com.
Thanks for watching.
