Pentek R30-BB Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today we’re looking at the Pentek R30-BB. Now this cartridge is a 30 micron pleated polyester, sediment removal cartridge. It’s an industry standard size approximately 10 inches long by 4 ½ 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 it’s perfect as a pre-filter before your other filters or before your water softener. Now polyester has many benefits, primarily the fact that it’s bacteriostatic, which means bacteria cannot live and grow on this media, unlike on cellulose media. So it’s perfect for untreated waters. It’s 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 it’s just a great choice for sediment removal. This is the Pentek R30-BB, and I’m your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com. Thanks for watching.
