10" x 4.5" Filter Overview Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today we’re looking at the 10 by 4 ½ filter size category. This is an extremely popular, industry standard size category. There are literally dozens of filter housings available and thousands of filter cartridges available from various manufacturers that are all considered this 10 by 4 ½ category. When I say 10 by 4 ½, I’m not referring to the size of the filter housings, but rather to the typical dimensions of the cartridges. All of these are approximately 10 inches in length and 4 ½ inches in diameter, or width. Now, there are clear sump housings, opaque sump housings, there are housings that have the pressure release button and those that don’t and there are literally dozens of types and styles of cartridges. There are polypropylene spun, there are pleated cellulose, radial flow carbon, carbon blocks, GAC/KDF combination filters, polypropylene string wound, Fiberdyne carbon; and there are even empty refillable cartridges from which you can make or create your own media combination. There’s a great deal of versatility here and nearly any water problem can be conquered with a filter from this size category. Now, except for a very few exceptions, most of these cartridges can be used in whole house applications. So you can take one of these filter housings and install one of these cartridges appropriate for your water problem, and deal with your entire home. Now, if you have a really large home; probably more than three bathrooms or if you have more than five or six people living in your home, then I would recommend moving up from the 10 by 4 ½ category to the 20 by 4 ½ category, to give yourself even greater flow. But for most people, this is a great filter size to do whole house filtration; so that you can do everything all in one filter housing. Again, this is the 10 by 4 ½ size category of very popular industry standard size category of water filtration products. I’m your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com. Thanks for watching.
