American Plumber WCC Granular Activated Carbon Filter Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Tony the Filter Doctor here. Today we’re looking at the American Plumber WCC. This is an industry standard size cartridge, approximately 10 inches in length by 2 ½ inches in diameter, which means it’s going to fit into a vast selection of industry standard size drinking water filter housings, like for example, the very popular Culligan HF360 and many more. Now, this unit is a 20 micron, axial flow granular activated carbon filter. This filter is perfect for typical drinking water systems, because the axial flow design maximizes contact time with the carbon filter media, and contact time equals contaminant reduction. You see, the only way for water to get into an axial flow filter is through these holes in the bottom of the cartridge, and then it’s forced to rise through the entire bed of media before it exits the cartridge at the top and goes to your drinking water faucet. That process causes a tremendous amount of contact time, and you want that because contact time means greater contaminant reduction. This filter will remove chlorine taste and odor, and a broad spectrum of organic and inorganic contaminants, as well as sediment down to 20 microns, and that’s going to give you great tasting, healthy water. Now, filter life for this cartridge is approximately 500 gallons or 6 months, whichever comes first. But that’s going to depend heavily on your unique circumstances. If you have a heavy load of contaminant or you use a great deal of water, you will certainly go through cartridges much faster than someone who doesn’t have either of those conditions. Again, this is the American Plumber WCC, a 20 micron, axial flow granular activated carbon filter, and I’m your host Tony the Filter Doctor. Thanks for watching.
