Pentek R50-BB Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Aquaman here with Today we’re looking at the Pentek R50-BB. The R50-BB is a 50 micron pleated polyester sediment removal cartridge. Now polyester has many benefits. The big one is that it’s bacteriostatic, which means bacteria cannot live and grow on this media, unlike cellulose. So it’s perfect for untreated waters. Also, it’s more durable than cellulose, and it can be washed, not indefinitely, but 3 to 4 times before you need to replace the cartridge. The 50 micron rating means that this will capture sediment that’s about twice the size of a speck of milled flour, so it’s a great pre-filter before your other filters or maybe before your water softener. It’s an industry standard size, approximately 10 inches long by 4 ½ inches in diameter, diameter is width, which means it’s going to fit in a vast array of whole house filter housings. The most common is probably the HD950. This is the R50-BB from Pentek, and I’m your host Aquaman with Thanks for watching.
