Pentek P5 Poly Spun Sediment Filter Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today weíre looking at the Pentek P5.
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 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. Itís probably going to be the last filter in a series of filters removing all of your sediment.
And because itís manufactured from polypropylene, itís perfect for untreated water, because itís 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 itís going to depend on your unique circumstances. If you have a heavy load of sediment and you use a great deal of water, youíll certainly go through these cartridges faster than someone who doesnít have as much sediment and isnít using that much water. Simply put one in your filter housing, and learn from experience approximately how long or how many gallons theyíre good for.
Again, this is the Pentek P5, a 5 micron polypropylene spun sediment filter, and Iím your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com.
