Pentek WP5BB20P Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today weíre looking at the Pentek WP5BB20P.
This is an industry standard size cartridge approximately 20 inches long by 4 Ĺ inches in diameter, which means itís going to fit into many standard whole house filter housings. One of the most common is the Pentek 20 BB, commonly known as the Big Blue.
This is a polypropylene string wound cartridge making it perfect for untreated water sources, because polypropylene is bacteriostatic, meaning microorganisms cannot live and grow on this filter media.
Itís also an excellent choice for industrial and commercial applications for three reasons. One, it has a very high loading capacity, two, itís resistant to hot water up to 160 degrees Fahrenheit, and three, itís highly resistant to chemicals which are commonly used in those industrial and commercial applications.
Now you have to be careful when purchasing it, itís not usually sold individually. Itís usually sold in a case in a quantity of six at a time. So just make sure you pay attention to that when purchasing it.
Replacement life on this cartridge is difficult to estimate because itís going to depend uniquely on your circumstances. If you have a lot of contaminant and you use a lot of water you might only get one month out of this cartridge, but on the reverse, if you donít have a lot of contaminant and you donít use that much water; who knows, you might get 6 to 9 months out of this cartridge. It depends a lot on your unique circumstances.
So again, this is the Pentek WP5BB20P, and Iím your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com.
