Pentek HD-950 10" x 4.5" Whole House Filter Housing Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today we’re looking at the Pentek HD-950.
This is an industry standard size whole house filter housing. Now, when I say 10 by 4 ½, I’m not referring to the dimensions of the filter housing, but rather to the filter cartridges that go inside of that housing. There are literally thousands of cartridges from dozens and dozens of manufacturers that are all designed the same size to fit into filter housings like this. And they’re all approximately 10 inches long by 4 ½ inches in diameter. So, there are so many cartridges to choose from, you can literally solve nearly any water problem with this type of filter housing, if you choose the correct cartridge to go inside of it.
Now, this is typically appropriate for most whole house applications, unless you have a very large home; typically more than three bathrooms, or more than six people in a single dwelling. Then you should bump up to the 20 by 4 ½ filter housing size.
Now, the HD-950 has one inch female pipe thread inlet/outlet size, and it’s also available with ¾ and 1.5 inch inlet/outlet size. It has an integrated pressure release button, which is really convenient because you have to release the pressure when you change filter cartridges. One way or another it has to be done, so if you don’t have it here, you have to find a faucet and open it to get that pressure out. You just press the button, a little spurt of water, and then you can successfully remove the sump from the cap and change your filter cartridge.
Obviously, it’s going to require the mounting bracket to mount it to the wall, and having the spanner wrench to remove the sump from the cap is also very convenient. It sometimes is impossible to get the sump off without that special spanner wrench tool.
Again, this is the Pentek HD-950, a 10 by 4 ½ standard size filter housing.
