KX Matrikx 01-425-125-20 +1 Carbon Block Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Tony the Filter Doctor here. Today we’re looking at the KX Matrix 01-425-125-20, better known as the +1. Now, the +1 is an industry standard size cartridge, approximately 20 inches in length and 4 ½ inches in diameter, which means it’s going to fit into a vast array of industry standard size filter housings, like for example the one that you see here. Now, the +1 is a 0.6 micron carbon block. Now, all KX Matrix filters are manufactured in the good old USA and this filter is NSF Standard 42 certified for materials and construction. But KX Matrix has internally tested this cartridge and certified that it does remove VOC’s, which are volatile organic compounds. Now, if you’re looking at just chlorine taste and odor reduction, this filter delivers a massive 150,000 gallon capacity. But if you’re dealing with VOC’s, that capacity can be a lot lower and it really depends on the unique type and quantity of VOC’s in your water. So you’re going to need to do some homework and verify how long the filter will last, based on your particular VOC’s. But for chlorine taste and odor, it will last a very very long time. Now, at 0.6 microns, this is an extremely dense filter and it will capture extra fine sediment and silt, but beware, if you don’t have some kind of pre-filtering before the water gets here, you could very easily clog this filter before the carbon is truly exhausted. So make sure you have some kind of sediment pre-filter. Again, this is the KX Matrix 01-425-125-20, better known as the +1, and I’m your host Tony the Filter Doctor. Thanks for watching.
