Pentek R30-BB Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today weíre looking at the Pentek R30-BB.
Now this cartridge is a 30 micron pleated polyester, sediment removal cartridge. Itís an industry standard size approximately 10 inches long by 4 Ĺ inches in diameter, diameter being the width, which means it fits in many standard whole house filter housings. Probably the most common is the HD950.
Now being 30 microns that means it will capture sediment that is just slightly larger than a speck of milled flour, so itís perfect as a pre-filter before your other filters or before your water softener.
Now polyester has many benefits, primarily the fact that itís bacteriostatic, which means bacteria cannot live and grow on this media, unlike on cellulose media. So itís perfect for untreated waters.
Itís also more durable than cellulose, and it can be washed. Not indefinitely, but 3 to 4 times before you need to replace the cartridge, so itís just a great choice for sediment removal.
This is the Pentek R30-BB, and Iím your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com.
