Pentek R50-BB Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today weíre looking at the Pentek R50-BB.
The R50-BB is a 50 micron pleated polyester sediment removal cartridge.
Now polyester has many benefits. The big one is that itís bacteriostatic, which means bacteria cannot live and grow on this media, unlike cellulose. So itís perfect for untreated waters. Also, itís more durable than cellulose, and it can be washed, not indefinitely, but 3 to 4 times before you need to replace the cartridge.
The 50 micron rating means that this will capture sediment thatís about twice the size of a speck of milled flour, so itís a great pre-filter before your other filters or maybe before your water softener.
Itís an industry standard size, approximately 10 inches long by 4 Ĺ inches in diameter, diameter is width, which means itís going to fit in a vast array of whole house filter housings. The most common is probably the HD950.
This is the R50-BB from Pentek, and Iím your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com.
