Pentek P5 Poly Spun Sediment Filter Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today we’re looking at the Pentek P5. This is an industry standard size cartridge, approximately 10 inches long by 2 ½ inches in diameter, which means it’s 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 P5 is a 5 micron, polypropylene spun sediment filter. Now, 5 microns is about five times smaller than a speck of milled flour, so this is great for those of you dealing with really fine sediment. It’s probably going to be the last filter in a series of filters removing all of your sediment. And because it’s manufactured from polypropylene, it’s perfect for untreated water, because it’s bacteriostatic and microorganisms cannot live and grow on this media. Polypropylene is also highly resistant to chemical attack, making this cartridge a great choice for industrial and commercial applications.

Now, filter life is difficult to estimate, because it’s going to depend on your unique circumstances. If you have a heavy load of sediment and you use a great deal of water, you’ll certainly go through these cartridges faster than someone who doesn’t have as much sediment and isn’t using that much water. Simply put one in your filter housing, and learn from experience approximately how long or how many gallons they’re good for. Again, this is the Pentek P5, a 5 micron polypropylene spun sediment filter, and I’m your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com. Thanks for watching.
