The Pentek GAC-BB water filter reduces chlorine taste and odor in your drinking water. The Pentek GAC-BB filter cartridge has a 20 micron postfilter that reduces carbon fines from the drinking water. The Pentek GAC-BB water filters produce healthier, better-tasting drinking water. The Pentek GAC-BB filter cartridge is effective at bad taste & odor and chlorine taste & odor reduction. The Pentek GAC-BB water filters are designed to allow maximum contact between the water and carbon, ensuring maximum adsorption. The Pentek GAC-BB filters effectively provide good general purpose drinking water filtration. The Pentek GAC-BB filter is NOT recommended for use in a whole house application. If you are looking for a whole house filter, the RFC-BB filter is a better filter for a whole house application. The Pentek GAC-BB filter cartridge construction allows water to enter at one end and pass through the entire length of the carbon bed before exiting the other end of the cartridge, while an internal expansion pad minimizes channeling or bypass. Before the water exits the cartridge, a 20 micron postfilter helps reduce carbon fines and other suspended particles from the filtered water. The postfilter is permanently fastened to an innovative support basket ensuring that it is firmly secured and eliminating any potential for bypass. This product is not recommended for whole house applications. Order today!

Very reliable product. Review by Handyman Harry
Rating
Our home filtration system combines two of these filters. Our water is clear,soft and has no visible iron content and no odor.
Our experience indicates a change is necessary every 30 to 45 days in order to maintain acceptable levels of water pressure. (Posted on 8/20/08)

No more chlorine smell or bad taste. Review by ABA

I have public water with chlorine added. Chlorine smells bad, drys my eyes, skin and hair. This whole house water filter I use eliminates this problem. I have tried other filters and they just do not work. (Posted on 9/6/08)

Pressure drop greater than stated Review by Carl
Rating
This filter was in an Omnifilter big blue housing, and had an immediate 40 PSI pressure drop (at only 3 or 4 gpm), that rose over the next 6 months (800 gallons a month) to 70 PSI (same as service pressure, with less than 2 gpm). No prolems with the water during that time, just way too much drop in pressure. It might be something with the housing though and others may have better luck. (Posted on 7/4/10)
good whole house filter Review by pb
Rating
the GAC-BB is a good compromise for price and water flow in a whole house environment. if all out flow is priority get the RFC-BB. but i like the slight water conservation i find with the GAC unit. in my very hard well, and very smelly, it last about 6 months before the smell begins to appear. approx 18k gallons. I use this behind a WP.5BB97P (Posted on 2/15/13)
good Review by vince

It was everything as advertised. The only problem I had was with the O ring. I guess I must have stretched it when I went to replace it and was putting on the "grease". Had a tough time getting it installed properly and not leaking. (Posted on 4/22/15)
