    Iron Reduction Benefits

    The Pentek RFFE-20BB filter improves water flavor by reducing the metallic taste caused by iron. The Pentek RFFE-20BB water filter adds no harmful chemicals to the water, making it completely safe for drinking water applications. The RFFE-20BB cartridges will contain a very small amount of fines (very fine powder) and new cartridges, after installation, should be flushed with sufficient water to remove all traces of fines from your water system before use. Using the Pentek RFFE20BB filter cartridge reduces the possibility of pipe and water heater damage. Pentek RFFE-20BB cartridges help to eliminate the orange and brown stains often found in sinks, toilets, tubs and other plumbing fixtures.

    Additional benefits

    This whole house iron reduction cartridge provides an economic alternative for iron reduction compared to whole house tank systems. This filter requires no wasteful backwash cycle and this saves a lot water waste and filtration time. When the media needs to be replaced, simply remove it from your filter housing and exchange it with a replacement, no need to uninstall or reroute plumbing like with a tank system. Enjoy iron reduction with this convenient iron reduction replacement cartridge.

    Comparable and Compatibility

    The Pentek RFFE-20BB is a comparable filter to the Everpure DEV910846 filter. Also branded under Pentek, Ametek, Culligan, Kleen Plus, Plymouth Products, Pentair, American Plumber, and USFilter.

    Filter Installation and Recommendations

    The Pentek RFFE20-BB cartridge should be installed on the main cold water line after the pressure tank or water meter. For best results, pre-sediment and post-carbon treatment is recommended. For pre-sediment filtration, use the P5-20BB-WF sediment filter. For post-carbon filtration, use the RFC-20BB radial flow carbon filter.
