Pentek NCP-20BB Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today we’re looking at the Pentek NCP-20BB. Now this is an industry standard size cartridge approximately 20 inches long by 4 ½ inches in diameter, which means it’s going to fit into many standard whole house filter housings. One of the most common being the Pentek 20-BB, commonly nicknamed the Big Blue. Now the NCP-20BB is a 10 micron, non cellulose, carbon impregnated filter. It’s perfect for untreated water because it’s bacteriostatic and microorganisms cannot live and grow on this filter media. However, it’s not the best choice for waters that have severe taste and odor problems or high levels of chlorine. It just doesn’t have that much carbon to deal with those kinds of problems. In fact, Pentek internal testing has certified this cartridge for a mere 1,000 gallons of chlorine taste and odor reduction. That’s a pretty low number for a cartridge of this size. But if you’re simply using it for sediment capture you could get 20,000 gallons out of this filter. So again, this is the Pentek NCP-20BB, and I’m your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com. Thanks for watching.
