Pentek 158204 Water Filter Housing Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Tony the Filter Doctor here. Today we’re looking at the Pentek 158204 filter housing. Now, the 158204 is an industry standard size housing, which means it receives cartridges that are approximately 20 inches in length by 2 ½ inches in diameter. This means there are literally thousands of filter cartridges available in this industry standard size that will fit into this filter housing, providing you with many options and flexibility for filtering your water problem. Now, the 158204 has ½ inch female pipe thread inlet/outlet size. This is a middle size, right between what you would normally expect for a whole house filter housing, and a smaller size for a drinking water filter. So, this could go either way. In certain small homes and small applications you could use this as a whole house water filter housing. But, it’s probably better suited as a drinking water filter or as a dedicated filter to a specific smaller application. Say, a single restroom, or your washing machine, or your dishwasher; some application that uses slightly less water than a whole house application. Now, it does come complete with a pressure release valve and an O-ring is included, but a mounting bracket is not included, and you will need one. The weight of this unit plus a filter cartridge plus water, cannot be supported by your plumbing pipes alone. So make sure you get a separate mounting bracket. Let me zoom in here closely and show you what this looks like. Again, this is the Pentek 158204, an industry standard size filter housing, and I’m your host Tony the Filter Doctor. Thanks for watching.
