Pentek P25 Sediment Filter Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today weíre looking at the Pentek P25.
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 P25 is a 25 micron, polypropylene spun sediment filter. Twenty five microns is approximately the size of a speck of milled flour, so this cartridge is not your best choice to remove extra fine sediment. But, as a pre-filter before, maybe a 5 micron or a 1 micron filter, itís a great choice to capture the larger particles.
Because itís manufactured from polypropylene, itís perfect for untreated water because itís bacteriostatic and microorganisms cannot live and grow on this filter media. And polypropylene is highly resistant to chemical attack, making it a great choice for industrial and commercial applications.
Now, filter life is difficult to estimate because itís going to depend on your unique circumstances. If you have a heavy load of sediment and you use a great deal of water, youíre certainly going to go through cartridges faster than someone who doesnít have that much sediment and isnít using that much water. Put one in your filter housing and simply learn from experience approximately how long or how many gallons theyíre good for.
Again, this is the Pentek P25, a 25 micron, polypropylene spun sediment filter, and Iím your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com.
