Pentek P1 Sediment Filter Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Aquaman here with Today we’re looking at the Pentek P1. This is an industry standard size cartridge, approximately 10 inches long by 2 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 popular Pentek 158642 that you see here.

Now, the P1 is a 1 micron, polypropylene spun sediment filter. One micron is extremely small, making this a perfect choice for those of you dealing with extremely fine sediment. It will probably be the last filter in a series of filters reducing all of your sediment. Because it’s manufactured from polypropylene, it’s perfect for untreated water because it’s bacteriostatic and microorganisms cannot live and grow on this filter media. And polypropylene is highly resistant to chemical attack, making a good choice for industrial and commercial applications.

Now, filter life is very difficult to estimate because it’s going to depend on your unique circumstances. If you have a heavy load of sediment and you use a great deal of water, you’re certainly going to go through these cartridges faster than someone who doesn’t have that much sediment and isn’t using that much water. Your unique circumstances play a huge role in the life of this filter cartridge. Simply put one in your filter housing and learn from experience approximately how long or how many gallons they’re good for. Again, this is the Pentek P1, a 1 micron polypropylene spun sediment filter, and I’m your host Aquaman with Thanks for watching.
